Unexpected vaccine delivery

Ruby Country Medical Centre 
Due to an unexpected vaccine delivery yesterday, we will be holding a small Astrazeneca clinic on Saturday. This will be used for first doses for anyone in groups 1-9 who missed out in March or have changed their mind, and for those patients aged 45-49. We only have limited appointments so we will book as many as we can. We are sending out staggered invitations. If you receive a text from us and are booked elsewhere, please use the link to decline the invitation so we can invite enough patients to fill the clinic. For this clinic, we will be calling and texting out to manage the numbers, so please do not call in unless you receive a text asking you to.
Thank you.
