Your church may be a vital conduit of important information at this time. You might want to consider putting the item below from a local NHS briefing in your regular communications.
For some patients, their local vaccination site may be within driving distance. For those who do not have access to a car, Government guidelines state that family and friends of elderly patients are still permitted to take them to their COVID-19 vaccine appointment under the exemption of ‘providing care for the vulnerable’.
If the patient does not have transport in place to attend their vaccination, arrangements will be made on their behalf.
We’re in the process of organising a range of transport options and will be informing you of these plans next week.
Please continue to look at our COVID-19 Vaccination Programme FAQs for up to date information.
