We have now invited our patients age 50+ for whom we have a mobile number, and will be inviting those who only have a landline recorded on their notes by calling them.
This means we have invited all of cohorts 1 to 8, and most of cohort 9. If you are 50+ and haven't yet had an invite, please contact us.
We are also continuing to invite patients who have had the first vaccine with us at the last 11-12 weeks.
If you're the main carer for someone at high risk from coronavirus, you're eligible for the Covid-19 vaccination.
If you haven't had or haven't booked a Covid-19 vaccine, please contact us.
The Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) has advised the government that adults living with people who have weakened immune systems should be prioritised for a Covid-19 vaccine.
Many patients have been asking: “When will I get my second COVID vaccine?”
We want to reassure you that you will receive your second dose around 11 weeks after your first dose. You will be vaccinated with the same COVID vaccine that you had your first dose (Pfizer or Astra Zeneca). The second vaccines are allocated to the exact number per day and need to be used in the right order that they were given the first time round.
As a surgery we are offering COVID vaccinations as per government guidance and we cannot deviate from this. Each patient had been grouped into a cohort as per this guidance and will be called for the vaccine in due course. Please do not call the surgery about your group or to try to change this. If you need to speak to someone please be polite to our receptionists, they are working with the same information as our clinicians, they will tell you your cohort but will not be able to change this or advise when your vaccine can be booked. If you have an queries about the vaccination please email the surgery at firstname.lastname@example.org
Please be kind and respectful, we are working our hardest for you at this very difficult time.
Scammers are sending emails that invite users to input their bank details into a website to confirm their COVID-19 vaccine appointment.
The NHS will never ask you to share bank details or pay for a vaccine.

Please remember to stay at home after you have had the COVID vaccination.
You still need to follow the rules, even if you have been vaccinated.
