We are currently booking over 50s for their first dose of the AstraZeneca Vaccine. If you are over 50, we invite you to please call the surgery to book your appointment at St Charles Hospital or the Violet Melchett Centre.

We know many people have concerns regarding the COVID-19 AstraZeneca Vaccine and blood clotting. 

Please see this information on safety from the government 'UK regulator confirms that people should continue to receive the COVID-19 vaccine AstraZeneca.'  "Following suspensions by some countries of the COVID-19 Vaccine AstraZeneca over suspected blood clots, the MHRA confirms that the benefits of the vaccine in preventing COVID-19 far outweigh the risks. People should still go and get their COVID-19 vaccine when asked to do so".

And also this article from the European Medicines Agency. 'COVID-19 Vaccine AstraZeneca: benefits still outweigh the risks despite possible link to rare blood clots with low blood platelets'
"These are rare cases – around 20 million people in the UK and EEA had received the vaccine as of March 16 and EMA had reviewed only 7 cases of blood clots in multiple blood vessels (disseminated intravascular coagulation, DIC) and 18 cases of CVST. A causal link with the vaccine is not proven, but is possible and deserves further analysis."
