If you have a general query about the COVID-19 vaccine, please look on the NHS Inform website or use the national helpline 0800 030 8013 which is open from 8am to 8pm, seven days a week. Vaccine rollout to the general public, based on age and underlying health conditions, will start as soon as possible, and will depend on vaccine supply. This is likely to be during January 2021, so please look out for an invitation letter arriving in the post which will allocate an appointment to you. The first group to receive this will be the over 80s. Please avoid calling with any general queries about the COVID-19 vaccine as we are unable to give you any more information at this stage and we need to try and keep phone-lines open for people who are unwell and needing medical care. Many thanks for your ongoing patience and cooperation.
Phase 1 – All patients should have been contacted with regards to receiving a Flu Vaccination. If you have not been contacted and you think you should have been, please contact the Practice for further advice, or see NHS Inform website for further information as to eligibility criteria.
Childhood nasal vaccinations are now in stock but supplies are limited. If you child is aged between 2-5 years old (pre-school only) or missed their vaccination in the Primary School setting, please get in touch to make an appointment.
Phase 2 (Part 1) – started December 2020. These are only for patients aged 60-64 (as at 31 March 2021) that are not at risk and not previously been invited. All invitation letters have been sent to those patients who are eligible. If you did not receive a letter, and you are in the recommended age range, please get in touch with the Practice.
Face Coverings – We should always STRONGLY ENCOURAGE the use of masks, including asking people in the building to do so, or to wear them properly if they are not wearing them correctly. We are not required to provide masks to anyone. We are not required to provide Exemption Letters to patients who are exempt from wearing masks.
“Providing a service of which we can feel confident and proud!”
