The COVID-19 vaccination programme has been delivered very successfully across the area by all GP Practices. The programme is now entering it’s next phase where patients under 50 years old will be offered their COVID-19 vaccination.
Easington Central Primary Care Network is made up of 3 GP Practices:
- Horden Group Practice
- Blackhall & Peterlee Practice
- William Brown Centre (Easington and Peterlee Medical Group), IntraHealth
The staff of these three practices have worked tirelessly to deliver the COVID-19 vaccination programme to all the eligible patients aged 50 and above and high-risk groups under 50 years. From the 4th May 2021 IntraHealth will take over the running of the COVID-19 vaccination programme on behalf of these three practices to complete the rest of the patient groups.
The three practices will be able to concentrate on completing second vaccinations for those patients who have already had their first dose with them.
The site for the delivery of the vaccinations for the under 50s will be at:
Blackhall and Peterlee Practice, Peterlee Community Hospital, O’Neill Drive, Peterlee, Co Durham, SR8 5TZ.
Please wait to be contacted about your vaccination as this will be dependent on guidance that we receive from the Government about patient prioritisation and the amount of the weekly vaccine deliveries that we receive. Please be assured that everyone will have an opportunity to receive their first vaccine dose between now and July 2021.
Please make sure that your GP Practice has an up-to date mobile telephone number for you as we will be contacting all patients by text message. Please do not contact us or your practice by telephone to enquire about dates for future vaccines as we do not have this information in advance, we will contact you once we know the delivery dates and the time that we can offer you your appointment. We will do this by text message in the first instance.
However, if you have any other questions, please contact us at Easington Central Primary Care Network COVID-19 Vaccination Hub (delivered by IntraHealth) on 0191 5181100.
