Why Shaftesbury’s Blackmore Vale GP Practice Can’t Vaccinate Every Day

Over 4,000 Shaftesbury area residents have now received their first COVID-19 vaccination.

Jane Dawes is managing partner of the Blackmore Vale GP practice. She says that most over 80’s care home residents, care workers and clinicians who wanted the jab have had it.

The Exchange in Sturminster is being used for vaccinations

Jane explains why the practice is not running vaccination clinics every day. We ask her whether anyone has suffered from side effects of the vaccine at the clinics and how many locals have declined the offer of an injection.
