THE BARNSLEY Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) have urged people to wait for confirmation of a Covid-19 vaccination slot, rather than contact their GP practice directly.

The NHS Barnsley CCG has confirmed that the vaccine roll out will continue over the next few months - starting with the most vulnerable.

A spokesperson for the group said: “There are no exact timings as it does rely on when we get the vaccines.

“You will be contacted through your GP practice when there is vaccine for your age group as well as those who have been asked to shield or have a long term condition.

“Please do not contact your GP practice to ask about the vaccine. When it’s your time they will contact you.

“You can help us by sharing this information with family and friends.”
