Islington Covid-19 Vaccination Programme
The Covid-19 vaccination programme has begun and The Miller Practice is contacting its patients following NHS guidelines.
In Islington different health and care organisations are working together on the Covid 19 vaccination programme. These include The Islington GP Federation, along with its dedicated vaccination sites, NHS England national sites and hospitals. You vaccination will not take place at the surgery. When you are contacted you will be told where to go for your appointment and how to book.
We are currently experiencing an overwhelming number of queries into the surgery relating to the Covid-19 vaccination programme and we are unable to answer these questions individually. Please do not contact us by telephone. If you do call us, our reception staff will politely direct you to our website. For more information please click here
Please ensure that we have your most up-to-date contact details so that we can contact you quickly when you become eligible for your vaccination.
When it is your turn to be vaccinated you will be contacted.
The Practice will contact you in order of the JCVI priority groupings and guidelines. The Practice nor the doctors have any influence over this list and cannot advise on exact timescales.
We are currently inviting Cohort 6 which is a very large cohort and these patients will be invited in stages.
