Three more vaccination centres go live in Milton Keynes

Date: 15/01/2021 | Category: CCG News

The Ascent Primary Care Centre (PCN) run by family doctors and their teams opened another vaccination centre today in Milton Keynes today (15 January), as the roll out of the biggest vaccination programme in NHS history gains further momentum.

Fully trained vaccinators will be administering the jab at Asplands Medical Centre. To ensure there is plenty of room for social distancing when waiting it is important that people only attend if they have received an invite from their GP and arrive at the time stated. We need to keep everyone safe while they wait.

Dr Sarah Whiteman, the Medical Director and putative Chair of BLMK CCGs, said: “Delivery of the biggest ever NHS vaccination programme has been a huge undertaking so I am thrilled that we can now say we are administering vaccines to the Bedfordshire, Luton and Milton Keynes footprint that we cover.

“I can appreciate that local people will be keen to get their jab as soon as possible, but we would ask that patients do not contact their practices at this time.

“GPs are working through their lists and making appointments according to the criteria provided by the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation.”
