Covid Vaccination Update

A spokesperson for Beacon Medical Group said: “Beacon Medical Group has been running the vaccination programme out of the Glenside Medical Centre for patients in cohorts 1-9 since December 2020.

“The team have vaccinated over 13,000 people and are now focusing on the second doses for those patients.”

“We have been proud to be involved with the national programme and vaccinate the highest risk patients, however we are now handing over the vaccination programme for cohorts 10-12 (those aged 18-49).”

“People in these groups will be invited through the national booking service for an appointment and can book appointments for the large vaccination sites (such as Home Park in Plymouth or Derriford Hospital, or selected local pharmacies, either online or by calling 119.”

“Our practices won’t be sending out invitations to this group and we ask that these patients do not contact their surgery as we are now focusing on completing second doses and providing our usual range of services within our practice.”
