We are offering booked vaccination appointments for first, second, third (for immunocompromised patients) and booster doses on Saturdays. If you are a patient, we will notify you when you are able to come for your booster.
You must also be either over 40, have underlying health conditions that put you at higher risk from COVID-19, be an adult carer, be experiencing homelessness, be a household contact of an immunosuppressed individual, or be a frontline health and social care worker.
On Monday 29th November, the JCVI recommended a COVID-19 booster vaccination to all adults over 18 where at least 3 months has passed since their second dose. The National Vaccination Program is not yet operationally ready for this yet. We are currently unable to vaccinate this group until the legal framework is updated.
If you have received doses of the Sinovac/Sinopharm/Sputnik Light vaccines, you are eligible for further vaccination in the UK in the following circumstances:
- If you have had 0 or 1 doses of these vaccines, we will offer you a full course of the Pfizer vaccine.
- If you have had 2 doses of these vaccines, we will offer you one additional dose of the Pfizer vaccine to boost your protection. This will only appear as a single dose in the NHS App but will be recorded as ‘dose 2 of 2’.
- If you have had 3 doses, we will unfortunately be unable to offer further vaccination.
For further advice on travelling during COVID-19 and proving vaccination station, please seek further advice on the government website, or that of the country you are visiting.
Please note that, due to space constraints, we do not often run vaccination clinics on weekdays.
MORE INFORMATION ON COVID-19 VACCINATIONS AND HOW TO BOOK
If you have any further queries, please email firstname.lastname@example.org as this will be picked up by the vaccination team. The vaccination team is different from the reception team who are working hard to provide the fundemental services of the surgery.
We are aware of the planned move to lifting the remaining Covid restrictions in England from the 19th of July. Medical settings are a higher risk environment and will need to be subject to more control measures than other public facilities.
We are acting very cautiously and are maintaining:
• Social distancing
• Face coverings
• PPE for healthcare staff
The delta variant is more transmissible and patients may come to the surgery when they are contagious. It is our duty to do all we can to keep both our patients and our staff safe whilst we deliver our care. Thank you
If a doctor does need to see you in person then you will be given an appointment to attend the Practice.
Our Nurses and Healthcare Assistant are providing appointments for most nursing procedures, but please ring the practice and check with our Reception Team for availability.
