North Shropshire vaccine hub to open this week

Prees Medical Practice will open this week as north Shropshire's vaccination centre.

The North Shropshire Primary Care Network have announced that they will be running a new Covid-19 vaccination centre from Prees Medical Practice.

The first clinic will be held this Thursday, January 28, in Prees.

The Primary Care Network, comprising Drayton Medical Practice, Churchmere Medical Practice, Caxton Surgery, Cambrian Medical Practice, Plas Ffynon Medical Practice, Wem and Prees Medical Practice are joined by Hodnet Surgery and Dodington Surgery for this initiative.

Patients in eligible groups will receive their invitation to attend either by text message or phone call.

Dr Catherine Rogers, clinical director for North Shropshire Primary Care Network, said: “We are pleased and excited that north Shropshire patients will have a GP-led facility within their vicinity.

"At the moment we are expecting both Pfizer/BioNtech and Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccines.

"This is great news as we will now be able to work together to offer vaccinations across the whole of north Shropshire."

The group said it would like to reassure patients that they will be contacted to book their appointments and not to contact the surgeries, as staff continue to work through the government priority groups.

The news comes after a recent announcement that Church Stretton Medical Practice will serve as a hub for south Shropshire patients.
