Barton Family Practice would like to advise our patients who are over 80 years of age, that NHSE have opened up Super Vaccination Centres. We have been made aware by social media and the TV that letters have been sent out to our patients over this weekend, asking them to book appointments at these ‘super sites’ in Birmingham or Manchester. This is not a scam, and is a genuine government vaccination programme running in parallel to the one at Pirelli stadium. If you are able to attend these sites please follow the directions in the letter.
However we are still part of the vaccination rollout programme and continue to deliver vaccines at Pirelli Stadium. We will definitely continue to contact our patients personally by telephone to book appointments at Pirelli. These super sites give patients a choice of vaccination venue.
Please ignore your invitation if you have recently had your coronavirus vaccine, or have a current appointment at the Pirelli venue in Burton.
It has also come to our attention that there are a number of reports relating to scam SMS Text Messages being sent to patients. We will never ask for payment, or for any of the other claims shown in this poster produced by GOV.UK
