Following extensive trials, the first safe and effective COVID-19 vaccine has been approved in the UK and is now available to priority groups.
The vaccinations are being delivered to priority groups identified by the Joint Committee of Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI).
We are pleased to announce that Taunton Vale Healthcare has been designated as a COVID-19 vaccination centre.
This is an exciting opportunity for our practice to become a part of the worldwide COVID-19 vaccination programme moving into 2021.
When it is the right time for you to receive your vaccination, you will receive an invitation to come forward.
We know lots of people will be eager to get protected, but we are asking patients not to contact us for an appointment as we will not be able to offer you one. You will be contacted when it is your turn.
