The Princes Risborough vaccination site is due to close on 30th June 2021.
All vaccinations after this date will need to be booked via the national boooking service or 119.

Currently we are vaccinating all our over 70’s and hope to have this completed within in the next week or two. Sorry, we cannot be more specific until we have confirmation of vaccine delivery. Our phone message and Facebook page have been updated to ask anyone over 70 to contact the surgery if they haven’t arranged/booked their Covid vaccination.
We are currently calling patients to find out whether they have booked their Covid vaccination either at the Community Centre or at another vaccination centre. Unfortunately, we only receive notification of vaccination and not booking which makes it quite difficult to reconcile where we are, but please be reassured we are working through this.
The plan is to move onto over 65’s by the middle of Feb, but this depends on vaccine delivery.
We have had a few queries around Carers/Foster carers and we would like to clarify that these patients fall into group 6, unless they are employed by a company, who then come under Social Care group 2.
Learning disability patients come under group 6, apart from Down Syndrome patients who come under group 4.
Centrally, letters have been sent out to patients asking them to book online at one of the vaccination sites. Several patients have booked these in places like Marlow, Aylesbury and further afield. We can only release the appointments for the Community Centre when we know we have the vaccines, this is normally about a week notice. We know a few patients have been upset about this as they would have preferred to come to the local site. Unfortunately, we had no control over these letters being sent out, but the important thing to remember is that we vaccinate as many patients as possible.
