The group of GP surgeries who run the vaccination programme for Spalding, Bourne and Market Deeping say they are not due to receive any first doses for the next three weeks.

Allied Health South Lincolnshire has been running the vaccination centre at Springfields in Spalding for patients in Spalding, Bourne and Market Deeping.

But now they say they have not been allocated any vaccines for first doses despite the programme opening up to 25 to 29-year-olds.

The organisation has posted on Facebook: "A quick update now vaccines have opened for 25 – 29 year olds.

"Since the beginning of the vaccine programme we have had no local control over the volume or type of vaccine we have received, and have given 84,255 doses across our area of both the Pfizer and Astra Zeneca vaccine.

"This week (week commencing 7th June), next week (w/c 14th June) and the following week (w/c 21st June) we are not scheduled to receive any vaccines allocated for first doses.

"We will be running clinics in practices for second doses and these will be predominantly Astra Zeneca over the coming days and weeks.

"We will receive a small amount of Pfizer w/c 21st June which will also be for second doses only."

The post added: "If you are now eligible for a vaccine and under 30 you can still book into other sites via the National Booking System who have been allocated the appropriate vaccines, and we would encourage people to take up the opportunity to book your vaccine as soon as possible."
