Spalding, Bourne and Market Deeping GP surgeries are not due to receive any doses of Covid-19 vaccination until June 21
The team behind the vaccination programme for Spalding, Bourne and Market Deeping say they are not due to receive any first doses for the next three weeks.
Allied Health South Lincolnshire, which has been running the vaccination centre at Springfields in Spalding for patients in Spalding, Bourne and Market Deeping, says it has not been allocated any vaccines for first doses despite the programme opening up to 25 to 29-year-olds. Vaccinations will continue at the Princess Royal Sports Arena in Wyberton, as well as in Grantham, Rutland and Peterborough.
Clinical and clerical staff from 12 medical centres in South Holland, Bourne and Market Deeping have so far given 84,255 doses of both the Pfizer and Astra Zeneca vaccine since the beginning of the programme.
A statement on Allied Health's Facebook page states: "This week (week commencing June 7), next week (w/c June 14) and the following week (w/c June 21) we are not scheduled to receive any vaccines allocated for first doses.
"We will be running clinics in practices for second doses and these will be predominantly Astra Zeneca over the coming days and weeks.
"We will receive a small amount of Pfizer w/c June 21 which will also be for second doses only.
"If you are now eligible for a vaccine and under 30 you can still book into other sites via the National Booking System who have been allocated the appropriate vaccines, and we would encourage people to take up the opportunity to book your vaccine as soon as possible."
