COVID-19 Vaccination Programme

COVID-19 Vaccination Programme

 

Patients are asked not to contact the surgery regarding COVID-19 vaccinations at the current time.

 

We have started our Covid-19 vaccination programme and are contacting patients in the priority groups first.  We will contact you when it is the right time for you to come forward to book an appointment.

 

It’s possible you’ll be asked to attend a GP practice which is not your usual one so you can have a vaccination. Your GP practice is part of a group of local GP practices looking after the healthcare of patients in the local area. The vaccinations will be delivered to one GP practice which will act as a hub to give the vaccinations to a range of local people, not just those registered as patients at this practice. By using one location it means we can use all our skilled staff in one location to provide the vaccination clinics. We have also chosen locations that mean that patients can safely receive their vaccination.

 

You might have to wait to have a vaccine, as every dose is needed to protect those at highest risk. You will be called in as soon as there are enough vaccines available. Please don’t contact the Practice to seek a vaccine before then.

 

If you have not yet been approached about having the Covid-19 vaccine, please read the information: why you are being asked to wait. You can also find further information on the Covid-19 vaccine here.

 

Please continue to abide by all the social distancing measures, wearing of face masks and hand hygiene guidance, which will still save lives. 

Don't have a smartphone?

If you receive a text with a link to book your vaccination appointment, but you do not have a smartphone, you can use an Internet Browser on a computer or laptop instead.

Simply type the link address into your browser address bar, and it will take you to the correct website. The link you receive via text message is personal, that means you cannot share it with other people, and it can only be used to book your appointment. You will be asked to confirm your date of birth, and then offered available appointment slots to choose from. When the booking is complete, you will receive a confirmation text message.
