The Rural Alliance Covid Vaccination Clinics will be held as Primary Care Network clinics at Cheshire View which is the Freemasons Hall in Christleton. The address is: Cheshire View, Plough Lane, Christleton, Chester CH3 7PT. We will be working with our colleagues from Bunbury, Kelsall, Malpas, Tarporley & The Village Surgeries Group.
We will be arranging for our most elderly and frail patients to attend first for a 10 minute appointment on one of these days, with a second appointment exactly 12 weeks later. They will be expected to wait in the building for 15 minutes after their vaccine for observation.
We ask that patients do not attempt to enter Cheshire View until their designated appointment time. Patients can attend with a member of their family or carer if required, e.g. if they have poor mobility etc. Wheelchairs or walking aids can be used throughout the building, the access is via a ramp.
We ask that everyone attending socially distances themselves from the person in front of them.
We will contact you when it is the right time for you to be vaccinated. Please do not contact your GP Practice before then.
When you are invited for a vaccine, please act on your invite and make sure you can attend appointments when you arrange them.
Please continue to wear a face covering and follow social distancing and hand hygiene guidance as, until the vaccine has been fully rolled out, this is the most effective way to reduce transmission of the virus and save lives.
