Newport’s housebound priority patients to receive their vaccinations from 11th February
Written on February 10, 2021
Dr Stefan Waldendorf, clinical director of the area’s Primary Care Network (PCN), confirmed that patients who are deemed housebound by their GPs can be vaccinated by a “roving team”.
It follows a dedicated vaccination hub opening up at the Combat Stress veterans’ respite centre at Audley Court.
Dr Waldendorf from the Newport/Central PCN (which includes Linden Hall Surgery and Wellington Road Surgery in the town, as well as Donnington Medical Practice and Shawbirch Medical Centre) said the travelling vaccination team would be “pragmatic” – if someone in a vulnerable group is set to be vaccinated and another member of their household lower down the priority list could also receive the vaccine this could be arranged.
