Asthma – Covid Vaccine update

We are receiving a high number of calls regarding eligibility for the covid vaccine and asthma.

If you were sent a shielding letter, you will be in group four. If you have ever had an emergency hospital admission for your asthma, or ever been prescribed three courses of steroid tablets in a three month period you will fall into priority group 6. If you do not fall into either of these groups and are under the age of 50, you will be vaccinated after the first nine priority groups.

Please do not contact the surgery requesting the vaccine, the surgery cannot book, cancel or change covid vaccination appointments. You will receive your invite for the covid vaccination as soon as it becomes available. This is outside of our control.
