People awaiting coronavirus vaccinations across Lichfield and Burntwood are being urged by the area’s MP to make sure their GP has up to date contact information.
Michael Fabricant said inaccurate records could delay the process of being called up for the jab.
It comes after concerns that letters with appointments were being delayed by disruption to postal services because of COVID-19.
The Conservative MP said:
“MPs cannot intervene with individual GP practices as to when they should call patients on their list to be vaccinated against COVID-19 – this is a clinical decision that will be made by each practice.
“But the first step is to ensure that your GP does have your correct and up to date mobile number and email address and that you have authorised them to use it.
“And if you have neither, you need to ensure they have your landline phone number. You will then be called for the vaccine when the time is right.”Michael Fabricant MP
