Croyard Medical Practice COVID-19 Vaccinations
PLEASE CAN YOU MAKE SURE YOUR CONTACT DETAILS ARE CORRECT.
We are delighted to announce Croyard Road Surgery’s next vaccine clinic. If you are 40-49 you should expect to receive a letter sent to your home with an invitation to attend the BLACK ISLE SHOWGROUND on Thursday 27th May. The invitation will have a TIME to attend. Please do your best to stick to this time to avoid confusion at the venue. If by Monday 24th May you have yet to receive a letter, and registered with Croyard Road please contact us at the Practice. More details on how to enter and exit the Showground will follow. This will primarily be a drive through clinic - some walk in capacity will be available, depending on the weather. Thank you for all your patience - we have had to take some time to organise the staff and resources needed to offer a clinic this size to our patients. Apologies if some felt “missed” out - if all goes well all eligible patients in phase one will have been offered a first dose vaccine by the 31st March. I hope this clarifies any concerns people had regarding the timing of vaccination. Thanks once again to the Black Isle Showground team for allowing use of the venue.
PLEASE BE PATIENT
