Vaccine Supply – update 25/02/21

The national covid vaccine programme allocates vaccine to PCNs and hubs across the UK. This is to ensure that the vaccine is shared across our communities. It means we sometimes get less than we would like, and sometimes we get more. Supply is decided at a national level.

We know there are many challenges delivering a programme of this size across the UK.

We expect a delivery next week and will be calling in our patients in Cohorts 5 and 6. This is a big group and will take us some weeks to vaccinate. Please be patient – we will get to you.

Some people will also receive letters from the national booking service inviting them to travel to a large vaccination site – our closest sites are in Kendal, Ulverston, Lancaster and the North East. This may be an offer some people are able (and want) to take up. We understand for most people this will not be possible – you don’t need to do anything. You will still be contacted by us and invited to have the jab locally.

If you have any questions you’ll find more information here: https://northcumbriaccg.nhs.uk/covidvaccine.We are still working to the national deadlines:

  • all over 50s by the middle of April
  • all adults by the end of July
