COVID-19 Vaccination Programme

Oxfordshire COVID-19 Vaccination Programme

Thanks to some truly outstanding work done by our clinicians, staff, patient participation group members and community volunteers, the roll- out of the COVID-19 vaccination programme in Oxfordshire is well under way.

Across Oxfordshire we have one hospital hub and local vaccination sites now administering COVID-19 vaccinations to the top two priority groups. The first vaccinations were delivered to patients (aged 80 and over), care workers and frontline NHS staff on 8 December at the county’s first hospital hub at the Churchill Hospital. Since 15 December, 18 local vaccination services have opened in a phased approach across our primary care network sites; the final three will start vaccinations by the end of the week in Carterton, Faringdon and Banbury.

With the Oxford AstraZeneca vaccine now available, GP practices are also able to reach out, more easily, to housebound patients as well as care home residents and staff.

Plans are also under way for a large scale vaccination centre being provided by Oxford Health NHS FT. The location and opening date will be confirmed soon. 

Each local vaccination site is managing its own patient lists and is working through them as quickly as possible, as vaccine supplies are delivered.

The sites are listed with the individual GP practices they serve:

We are working hard to deliver the vaccinations as quickly as supplies are made available. Because there is a phased approach being taken, some people are waiting longer than others.

Everyone in the priority groups, registered with an Oxfordshire GP practice, will be invited in due course. Please wait to be contacted with an invitation to attend. You will be given full details of when and where to go.

Enthusiasm from patients and the public has been huge and GP practices are finding their patients are keen to benefit from the vaccination when called.

People in our communities have an important part to play to help the NHS to deliver the vaccination programme and we are asking:

  • please don’t contact the NHS to seek a vaccine, we will contact you
  • when we do contact you, please attend your booked appointments
  • please continue to follow all the national lockdown guidance to control the spread of the virus and save lives

For further information go to GOV.UK website

There will be lots of information coming and people will be invited to get the vaccine when they are eligible, so please be patient. We will continue to update this web page as this major programme progresses.

Covid-19 Vaccine:

An effective vaccine is the best way to protect the most vulnerable from coronavirus.

The Pfizer/BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine will be used for the vaccination programme. It has recently been approved for use in the UK. You will need two doses. This vaccine is shown to offer up to 95% efficacy and has been given regulatory approval by the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA).

The Oxford-AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine is also on stream with more than half a million doses initially available, with tens of millions more to be delivered in the coming weeks and months once batches have been quality checked by the MHRA. More than 730 vaccination sites have already been established across the UK and hundreds more are opening  to take the total to over 1,000, helping those who are most at risk from COVID-19 to access vaccines for free. You will also need two doses of the Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine.

Prioritisation 

The full prioritisation list can be found here and is as follows (in order of priority):  

  • Residents in a care home for older adults and their carers
