COVID-19 Vaccination Rollout

The vaccination programme will be delivered by Chorley Central Primary Care Network (CCPCN).

This consists of the following surgeries:

 

Regent House Surgery

The Chorley Surgery

Library House Surgery

Granville House Medical Centre

Euxton Medical Centre

Coppull Medical Practice

 

We do not currently have a confirmed delivery date for the vaccine. The vaccines will be delivered to The Chorley Central Primary Care Network Vaccination Centre. Once delivered, the vaccines cannot be moved to other practices’. All patients will be required to attend for their vaccinations at:

The Chorley Central Primary Care Network Vaccination Centre 24-26 Gillibrand Street, Chorley PR7 2EJ

 

At the time of writing, the Pfizer vaccine has been approved for use. This vaccine must be stored at -70C. Practices’ do not have access to ultra-low temperature refrigerators and so the vaccines will be sorted in conventional pharmacy refrigerators which operate around 2-6C.

Due to the temperature difference, all vaccines received each week will need to have been given within 5 days. Therefore, the CCPCN are drawing up stringent plans to minimise wastage and ensure a smooth experience for patients.

 

We please ask for your understanding if your appointment needs to be rearranged for any reason. This may be due to the numbers of vaccines available, or delayed deliveries.

 

The programme will be manned by staff from all surgeries within the CCPCN. Although, we are trying our best to provide the best service, there may be some disruptions to our regular functioning at the practice. We please ask for your patience and consideration. We have a strict zero tolerance policy for abuse towards our staff.

Patient Priority

 

Patients’ will require two doses of the vaccine, at least 21 days apart.

A member of staff will contact you to book both appointments.

Patients’ will be required to wait in the vaccination centre for 10 minutes after their vaccination. Please consider this when you are contacted to book your appointments.

The following groups will be prioritised in order.

NB: Please be aware that we are only able to invite and vaccinate groups 3 and onwards once we have been given permission to do so by NHS England. This may mean that couples may each have to attend twice, but under strict instructions we are unable to make exceptions.
