9 April 2021

No specific assessment has been made. However, for these individual patients, general practitioners will determine the best approach to vaccination alongside the community teams, based on their knowledge of the patient and circumstances. Some of these patients may be able to attend Primary Care Network (PCN) designated sites with assistance and discussion should be held with the family and/or carer to facilitate this process. PCNs have established mobile vaccination teams, which will also focus on people who are housebound.
