KIDDERMINSTER Medical Centre and Stourport Health Centre have both been approved to deliver Covid-19 vaccinations.

Wyre Forest Health Partnership patients will be able to get vaccinated from one of the surgeries.

This follows the announcement that the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine could be rolled out in parts of the UK next week.

On Facebook, Kidderminster Medical Centre posted: "We were really pleased to read the exciting news about the Covid-19 vaccine being approved for use.

"Because of the nature of the vaccine and the logistics of getting it delivered, initially not all GP surgeries will deliver it from their buildings.

"We are pleased to say that two of our surgeries have been approved to deliver the vaccination from their buildings, for our Wyre Forest Health Partnership (WFHP) patients.

"We will be working with the other WFHP practices to give the vaccinations from Stourport Health Centre and Kidderminster Medical Centre."

The surgery group has said that when the vaccine is received, patients will be contacted in the priority order set by the government.

Separate arrangements will be made for housebound patients and residents in care homes to receive their vaccination.
