Primary care leaders ‘will throw everything they’ve got’ behind next phase of vaccination programme


Responding to the announcement that the NHS will offer the COVID-19 jab to the clinically vulnerable and people aged 65-69, Ruth Rankine, director of the NHS Confederation’s PCN Network, said:

“Working as part of an integrated system, primary care is best placed to offer vaccinations to clinically extremely vulnerable people. Primary care services are at the heart of communities and have already found ways to improve access through targeted public information and local engagement.

“Primary care leaders will throw everything they’ve got behind this next phase, but they will have the triple challenge of continuing to vaccinate any remaining people from the first cohorts, offering vaccinations to clinically vulnerable people including in their own homes, and soon, booking in the second doses.

“To do this, it is essential that local sites have supplies when and where they need them.”
