Recently there have been reports of an extremely rare but serious condition involving blood clots and unusual bleeding after AstraZeneca (AZ) vaccination. The national committee which recommends on vaccines has therefore recommended that patients under 40 years are no longer offered this vaccine for their first dose. If you have already had a first dose of AZ vaccine without suffering this rare side effect you should still complete the course with the AZ vaccine for your second dose, even if you are under 40. For more information please see https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/covid-19-vaccination-and-blood-clotting/covid-19-vaccination-and-blood-clotting
Please follow advice provided on GOV.UK and stay at home as much as possible. You should receive a letter shortly from the Department of Health and Social Care regarding what to do if you cannot work from home and copies of the letter can be found on the website above following this link.
Dr Beekman will be retiring as a GP on the 7th October 2020, after being with the Practice for 18 years.
