Rutland County Council Covid Information, Advice and Support Hub
Vaccination advice from Rutland Health Primary Care Network.
The vaccination centre at Catmose is the result of a successful partnership involving RCC, local NHS services, the Primary Care Network (PCN) and volunteers.
RCC is not involved in booking or managing vaccination appointments. The NHS will contact residents to confirm when it is their turn to have the vaccine.
Details of which groups are eligible to receive the vaccine first can be found on the GOV.UK website:
Links to official sources of information about the COVID-19 vaccine rollout have been added to the RCC website, together with helpful guidance for anyone who is attending a vaccination appointment at Catmose:
If your practice has your mobile phone number information will be sent to you by text message. We have over 2500 people over 80 in Rutland, and the vaccine is delivered in batches of 975, so don't worry if you have not been contacted straight away.
Do not contact your practice – we will contact you.
The Rutland Primary Care Network (www.rutlandhealth.co.uk) will have daily updates on the Rutland Covid-19 Vaccination Programme as it develops.
All vaccinations will be given only by prior appointment – no walk ins.
You cannot have a vaccination if you have a temperature, are unwell, or have had another vaccination within 7 days. Your temperature will be checked before you are allowed into the building. Please do not come if you have a temperature or continuous cough or loss of taste/smell (with any of these symptoms you will need to book a Covid test).
When you come for your Covid vaccination:
- If you drive yourself you will have to wait in your car for 15 minutes after the vaccination, so please ask someone in your family or "support bubble" to drive you if at all possible.
- Wear a face covering.
- Maintain strict safe social distancing of 2m.
- Make sure you are wearing a short sleeve top under your coat as injections will not be given in a private room.
- All queuing will be outside, don't forget your umbrella. Queues should be short because we have booked appointment times.
