We started to telephone eligible patients on Monday 11th January to book for vaccination on Saturday 16th January at Carterton Health Centre. It will be Charlbury staff running the clinic so same faces different location.

Please do not arrive earlier than 5 minutes before your allotted time as you have to sit and wait for 15 minutes after vaccination before we can let you go (space is limited & trying to achieve social distancing).

ATIC (All Together in Charlbury) the details of which may be found on the local Charlbury website may be able to help with transport to Carterton if required Tel 01993 776 277

We ask you to come to Charlbury Surgery or ask someone to do this on your behalf to pick up the necessary paperwork & fill in the form at home. It would be helpful for us if you can arrive between 10am and 11am as a representative from our patient group will be there to help you at that time.

CARERS: Please contact CMC@nhs.net to let us know you are a carer. You are amazing, thank you for caring & all your hard work! Please don’t phone the surgery to tell us you are a carer as it’s clogging up our phone lines, an e-mail is perfect…Thanks!

We are struggling to phone patients to book them in for their vaccine appointments as we are being flooded with incoming calls!

So far according to the number of vaccines we have been allocated and the number of patients in each age group that we have, it looks like:

  • Saturday January 16th will be all over 85’s.
  • Tuesday January 19th will be the remaining over 85’s and mostly over 80’s.
  • Friday January 22nd we will be starting the large 75 to 80 group.

Just as soon as we have the AZ vaccine we will be vaccinating the vulnerable house bound in age descending order.

Keep checking here regularly for updates & in case anything changes (for example the vaccine delivery does not turn up).

Keep looking after yourselves & each other, we will get through this.
