A huge ‘Thank you’ for helping vaccinate almost 50,000

As the Salisbury Cathedral vaccination clinic is now close, organisers give thanks after almost 50,000 vaccinations.

The Sarum South Primary Care Network (PCN) held their last COVID-19 vaccination clinic at the weekend. This means the clinics at Salisbury Cathedral and Leaden Hall are now closed.

In total, the GP led vaccination service vaccinated 48,803 patients across Salisbury Cathedral and Leaden Hall within 21 weeks, from their first clinic on Saturday 16th January.

This includes housebound patients as well as staff and residents from 32 care homes across the city. This equates to 3885 hours of vaccinating.

Their last clinic was on Saturday 12th June after the PCN held 40 vaccination clinics with the help from 167 staff from across the 5 GP Practices, 33 Tidworth Military staff, 33 roaming National Military staff (Navy and Army) as well as 76 volunteers.

A spokesperson from the Primary Care Network told us, “We would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who has helped us along the way and our staff for working tirelessly over the last 6 months.

“We couldn’t have achieved this without the help of our wonderful volunteers, giving their time for the benefit of the community. This is an amazing achievement and every member of our team should be extremely proud of themselves”.
