COVID-19 VACCINATION UPDATE 01/03/2021
The Maidenhead Primary Care Network, led by Dr Amandeep Dosanjh continues to vaccinate local patients registered at a Maidenhead GP Practice and have so far vaccinated over 16,500 patients.
We have now invited all out patients from cohorts 2-6 to have their Covid vaccination. If you have missed your invite to the Desborough Suite, please call the surgery to book your vaccination. We will be inviting patients from cohort 7 next (60-64 year olds) and then we will be working our way through the remaining adult age groups as quickly as we can.
We now have lifestyle pods located at our vaccination site which will measure your height and weight, will take your blood pressure and measure your oxygen saturation levels. Marshals are on hand to help and the data collected will be returned to your GP practice for coding and further action where needed.
2nd vaccine doses - we know many of you are anxious to have your booked appointment confirmed for your 2nd dose. These will be administered during the 11th and 12th week post 1st dose vaccination. Please only call us if you have not heard from us after the 11th week post 1st dose.
The vaccination site is located at The Desborough Suite, Maidenhead Town Hall SL6 1RF.
If you are in cohort 2 - 6 and have not received an invite by text all phone call from the surgery then please call now to book your appointment at The Desborough Suite - 01628 620 458.
If we have a mobile number for you we will invite you by text message with a link that will allow you to book your 1st vaccination appointment at The Desborough Suite online.
We are vaccinating as quickly as the vaccine supply allows. Patients are being invited according to the Government's criteria. To help us please do not telephone the surgery to ask when you will be receiving your vaccine as we do not have the staff to manage this demand.
