Details of how GP practices in Liverpool are starting to vaccinate priority patients
Groups of GP practices in Liverpool are beginning to invite people aged over 80 to have the Coronavirus (Covid-19) vaccine – this brief update explains more about how the process works.
You don’t need to contact your GP practice or another NHS organisation to ask for your vaccination – or to request one for a member of your family – you will be invited when it is time for you to be vaccinated, either with a letter or a phone call.
The city’s GP practices are working together to vaccinate patients, so you might not be contacted by your usual practice, and you might need to go to a different location for the vaccination itself – you will be told where to attend when you are invited in. When you have had your vaccination you will be told when you will need to go back for your second dose.
Not all areas of the city have started vaccinating yet, so don’t be worried if you or a family member is over 80 but hasn’t heard anything so far. You might know others over 80 who have been invited for their vaccination already, but that doesn’t mean that you are a lower priority. GPs and other practice staff are working hard to vaccinate as many people in this group as quickly as possible, and during January many more people will be invited in, but it is only the start of the vaccination programme and it will take some time to work through everyone.

NHS Cheshire and Merseyside has launched a new campaign to increase awareness of online health services …
From 1 July 2023 the way members of the public make a complaint about primary care services to the commissioner is changing….
High blood pressure, or hypertension, rarely has noticeable symptoms. But if untreated, it increases the risk of serious problems such as heart attacks and strokes. Around 1 in 4 adults in the UK have high blood pressure, although many will not realise it.
With one in ten children not up to date with their vaccinations and at risk of becoming seriously unwell, this World Immunisation Week (24-30th April) the NHS is encouraging people to make sure they are up to date with their routine vaccinations at all life stages.
At 3pm on Sunday 23rd April there will be a test of the Government’s new, national Emergency Alerts system set up to warn people across the UK if there’s a danger to life nearby.
