GP surgeries and primary care networks in England have been told to be ready to start running Covid-19 vaccination centres by December 14.

A letter sent to all surgeries and primary care leads from NHS England and NHS Improvement said the “scale and complexity” of the vaccination programme would make it “one of the greatest challenges the NHS has ever faced”.

“It is crucial we start to activate local vaccination services to allow priority patient cohorts to start accessing the vaccine.”

Each designated vaccination site must be ready to deliver 975 doses of the vaccine in the week beginning December 14 – the number of doses in each of the Pfizer vaccine’s packs.
