The Covid -19 vaccine rollout commenced in early January, with the Health Centre on Station Avenue being used as the hub for administering the life-saving injections.
With around 2000 jabs of the first dose vaccines left to administer to the first four priority groups which include the over 80s and care home residents, the Bridlington Primary Care Network (PCN) have been extremely pleased how the delivery of the local vaccine rollout has gone.
A spokesperson for the PCN said: “ We have been delighted by the take up and the huge amount of positive comments that have been received.”
“I would like to thank all the NHS staff for their hard work as commitment to this and also the fantastic volunteers that have been supplied by the SMILE foundation who have helped this huge undertaking run so smoothly.”
People are being asked not to contact their surgery, but to await instruction for an appointment at either the Station Avenue Health Centre or the other GP surgeries in Bridlington. You will never be asked for payment or to give any money.
Hilda Thompson attended the Station Avenue Medical Centre to receive her injection from pharmacist Jaya Authunuri with healthcare assistant Sarah Blackburn in attendance.
Amongst one of the first recipients in January was a 103-year-old Bridlington resident.
Said Hilda:”I was glad to have the injection so I can safely be ready to meet up with my family and friends in the near future.”
She added: “The appointment was very well organised and all the staff were lovely and very cheerful.”
