Covid-19 vaccinations now available in Lutterworth
27th January 2021 | By Liz Mattock | Posted in Coronavirus
From today, patients in the Lutterworth area will be able to get their Covid-19 vaccinations locally, as a vaccination site has opened at Feilding Palmer Hospital.
The site will provide vaccinations for patients registered with the Masharani Practice and Wycliffe Medical Practice, which are on the same site as Feilding Palmer Hospital. Some patients of these practices have previously been offered appointments at The Kube at Leicester Racecourse, but those who were unable to travel to that site will now be offered a local appointment.
The vaccination site at Feilding Palmer Hospital is jointly run by Leicestershire Partnership Trust and South Blaby and Lutterworth Primary Care Network and is vaccinating health and social care staff as well as the public.
Caroline Trevithick, Executive Director of Nursing, Quality and Performance for the Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland clinical commissioning groups said: “Feilding Palmer Hospital has been open throughout the pandemic for outpatient appointments and it now also offers Covid-19 vaccinations to priority patients.
“We want to make it as easy as possible for patients to get their vaccinations and this centre will be really accessible for patients in the Lutterworth area. We continue to deliver the vaccine to the top four priority groups as set out by the JCVI and aim to complete vaccinations for these four cohorts by mid February, as scheduled.”
