Number of Covid-19 vaccinations in Stamford and Rutland to increase dramatically during March
Supplies of Oxford and Pfizer Covid-19 vaccines will increase at GP surgeries and vaccination centres in the second half of March.
They will be used to give second doses for those who had their first 12 weeks ago, as well as first doses for ‘cohort 6’ (those aged 16 to 64 with underlying health conditions) and ‘cohort 5’ (those aged 65 and over).
NHS England encourages healthy over 65s to use the regional vaccination hubs, if they are able to get to them safely, helping to keep local vaccination centres, such as St Mary’s Medical Centre in Stamford, free for those with underlying health conditions.
A Lakeside spokesman said: “We expect to receive increased volumes of vaccine later this month as we continue to offer first doses to eligible patients whilst also beginning to offer second doses to those vaccinated at the start of the year.
"Exact quantities and delivery dates are not currently known, but as we receive confirmation of delivery dates we will arrange clinics and send out invitations to eligible patients."
