COVID-19

LEAFLETS

COVID Vaccination leaflet for Adults can be accessed here: COVID Vaccination Leaflet for Adults

The NHS is now offering vaccinations to people who are most at risk from Covid-19. This follows the approval of both the Pfizer BioNTech and Oxford AstraZeneca vaccines as safe and effective, after extensive trials. 

The first vaccinations are being offered to people in the priority groups identified by the Joint Committee of Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI), starting with people in care homes and those aged 80 and over. Groups of GP practices are working together to provide local vaccination services and will contatc eligible patients when it is their turn.

When it is your turn, you will receive an invitation via the phone or through a letter either from your GP or the national booking system.

We know lots of people will be eager to get protected but please could we kindly ask you not to contact the practice for information about the vaccine or to ask for an appointment, as you will not be able to get one until you receive an invitation.

If you are invited for a vaccine, please act on your invite straight away and make sure you attend your appointments when you arrange them. 

Please note that vaccinations are free of charge and only available through the NHS. Anyone who claims to be able to provide you with a vaccine for a fee is likely to be committing a crime and should be reported to the Police online or by calling 112. The NHS will never ask you to press a button on your keypad or send a text asking you to confirm you want the vaccine. 

For more information about the vaccine, please visit www.nhs.uk or see these Frequently Asked Questions

Further information

We will share further information with you as it becomes available. In the meantime, there are three things people can do to help:

  • Please don’t contact the NHS to seek a vaccine - we will contact you when it’s the right time to you to have yours
  • Please act on your invite when it comes, and make sure you attend your appointments when you arrange them;
  • Please continue to abide by all the social distancing and hand hygiene guidance, which will still save lives.
