THE COVID-19 vaccination clinic at Bridport Medical Centre on January 20 for those receiving their second dose has been cancelled, and will instead be for those having their first coronavirus vaccine.
The cancellation may affect patients from Lyme Regis and Charmouth, who are also receiving vaccines at Bridport Medical Centre.
A spokesman for Bridport Medical Centre said: “Due to changes in government guidelines, vaccinations booked for Wednesday, January 20 are not going ahead. Bookings are being cancelled.
“We are contacting patients, but please do share and spread the word.
“Patients will receive their second vaccination 10-12 weeks following their first vaccination and will be contacted to inform them of their next appointment date, when we have confirmation of vaccine delivery.
“The clinic on January 20 will now be for first vaccinations and we are working hard to contact those eligible. Please do not call your surgery to book – appointments are being booked centrally.
“Please do share with those who may be affected.”
