COVID Vaccinations

GP Practices are starting to receive a staggered supply of Covid-19 vaccinations each week. We are being instructed by the HSCB to follow the JCVI guidance on priority groups for vaccination. We are contacting patients by telephone to book into our clinics at Bangor Health Centre. There is no charge for the vaccine and we will never ask for your bank information. Please make sure we have an up to date contact telephone number for you.

Please DO NOT phone the Practice to find out where you are on the list - Remember we have 7400 patients to manage.

At present we have contacted the majority of our over 80 years olds, and are starting to contact those aged 79 - 75. (updated 27.01.21) 

 The Priority Groups are -
