COVID-19 Vaccine Supply

Despite recent media coverage outlining a national supply issue, everyone in Cheshire West who has already had their first dose COVID vaccine will be offered their second dose within 12 weeks. Available vaccine supply is being prioritised for this purpose.

Most vaccination services in Cheshire West started vaccinating patients in early January and it has been determined nationally that second doses should be offered as close to week eleven as possible, following first dose.

Clinics are carefully planned around confirmed vaccination delivery dates in order to minimise disruption to patients. When confirmation of the delivery date for second dose vaccines has been received your GP practice will contact you to arrange your second dose appointment.


We are finding that the number of patients who don’t attend for appointments has increased with the change in system. This is a waste of the doctor or nurse’s time, and makes other patients have to wait longer for an appointment. Please make a note of your appointment and cancel it if you don’t need it.


Help us to make it a better service for everyone by cancelling your appointment if you no longer need it! Thanks
