COVID-19 VACCINATION PROGRAMME

Here at Granta, we are very proud of the team’s COVID-19 vaccination programme progress, having vaccinated nearly all of our patients in cohorts 1 to 4. Everyone in these cohorts should by now have been contacted by us. If you haven’t, or if you have previously declined the vaccine but have now changed your mind, please call us on 0300 234 5555 (option 2) and you will be prioritised for our next clinic.

Patients in cohorts 5 and 6 are currently being vaccinated. Some of you may receive a letter inviting you to a vaccination centre, and others may receive a text or ‘phone call inviting you to an appointment at Granta Sawston.

May we take this opportunity to remind everyone that, if you have booked a vaccine appointment but are not going to attend, please let us know as soon as possible so that we can offer your vaccine to someone else. 

We appreciate that everyone wants to know when their appointment will be, and we are working as fast as possible to get through our patient lists. Contacting us before being invited however, will not make this process move any faster.  Please bear us as our team continue to work incredibly hard to deliver the vaccine into our community.

If you are unable to get to us to have your vaccine, there are a number of support groups that could help you, including:

Cambridge Dial-a-Ride, 01223 506335

The NHS Royal Voluntary Service, 0808 196 3646

Caring Together Cambridgeshire, 0345 241 0954

Carers in Herts, 01992 586969

Please remember – you will NEVER be asked for payment for the COVID-19 vaccination. Any text message, letter or telephone call requesting your bank details and/or payment should be ignored. Please pass this message on to anyone who may be more susceptible to this type of scam.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.
