The Bourne End and Wooburn Green Medical Centre is waiting for more vaccine supplies after a successful first week vaccinating patients.

Local surgeries are using Adams Park as a vaccination site and last week Bourne End and Wooburn Green surgery vaccinated 1,136 people.

As no vaccines have been delivered this week, many residents will have had calls saying their planned appointments will have to be rescheduled.

Bourne End and Wooburn Green Medical Centre have said that they will “proceed as rapidly as vaccine supply allows”.

The statement read: “We await notice of further vaccine supplies to administer from the Adams Park site but in the meantime will be hoping to vaccinate some of our care home residents this week.

“We are, of course, pushing for more vaccines to continue this work and anticipate supplies coming online more easily in the next few weeks.

"We are ready to meet the challenge.

“If we receive another delivery of vaccine this week we will be contacting our registered patients in the published priority group order at short notice to invite you to attend for vaccination.

“Please do not worry – we are determined to vaccinate as many of you as we can as quickly as possible and we will be continuing to invite our patient group until it is clear that the job is done.

“We will proceed as rapidly as vaccine supply allows.

“As soon as we have a delivery we will continue to vaccinate and do so ongoing."

The vaccination team consists of local GPs, Nurses, Pharmacists, Paramedics, Physician Associates, Managers, Social Prescribers and administrators plus volunteers.

With there being no bus route to Adams Park, volunteer groups were giving their services to transport people who had no way of getting to the ground.

The vaccination process is a massive logistical task and has already become the largest vaccination programme in the UK’s history.

With so much planning going into process some volunteers are concerned that vaccine supplies might not be delivered for two weeks after such an optimistic opening week.

Volunteer David Whittaker said: “Everyone in our local area, Bourne End and Wooburn Green, was absolutely thrilled and our practices did a brilliant job setting it all up.

“We were delighted to help them.

“It’s just disappointing at the moment for the foreseeable future that will not be happening.

“We had all our people lined up ready to go for the next many weeks.”

We have asked the Buckinghamshire Clinical Commissioning Group to confirm the situation with vaccine supplies.
