First batch of vaccines expected at Racecourse today
The first initial delivery of COVID-19 vaccinations to Newbury Racecourse are expected today.
Strawberry Hill Medical Centre shared the news this morning saying they also expected more vaccines next week.
The Medical Centre said their staff will be concentrating on vaccinating the highest priority patients in local nursing and care homes.
Going on to say: "We expect to receive more vaccinations next Monday and throughout the week we will be moving on to vaccinating our patients in the second priority group - those aged 80 and over."
According to the Medical Centre: "As a collective of practices we have the capacity to administer a large number of vaccines. At present we are restricted by our supply but we expect larger deliveries in future weeks.
"COVID-19 Vaccination clinics will be held at the Racecourse over a period of 2-3 days following a vaccine delivery. We do not have control over delivery dates and we therefore cannot pre-book appointments until we have a firm confirmation of a delivery date."
