As many of you will be aware, the Sidings Medical Practice is currently hosting the Boston PCN Covid Vaccination Hub.
We are working together with Greyfriars Surgery and Swineshead Medical Group to offer Covid Vaccinations to all eligable patients within the Boston Locality.
The vaccination hub came into being on 6th January 2021 and to date (03/03/2021) we have vaccinated 12755 patients from all 6 Boston GP practices. These include care home residents, housebound patients and other patients from the most clinically vulnerable groups as identified in national guidance.
We continue to work our way through all patients as identified within those groups, (listed on the front page of our website).
Rest assured, if you are eligable for a vaccine or become eligable for a vaccine, we will make every effort to contact you to offer you an appointment.
We have been able to facilitate the Vaccination hub due to the continued hard work of our teams, both clinical and non clinical. Working long hours and also providing cover on their days off to enable us to vaccinate as many patients as our vaccine supply will allow. We should also give acknowledgement to our fantastic team of volunteers, supporting our staff, providing car park cover, directing patients and numerous other duties. We truly could not have done this without them.
The community spirit and gratitude has been overwhelming. We have recieved letters and cards of thanks as well as numerous donations and gifts ranging from hampers, cakes, chocolates, flowers, the list goes on. We are truly grateful to all that have made such nice gestures and it really makes all the hard work feel worthwhile.
We continue to vaccinate patients and will only stop once the task is completed.
Many thanks to the patients of Boston, the staff and volunteers. Keep safe and together we will beat the pandemic.
