COVID-19 vaccine
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 two approved COVID-19 vaccines do not contain any animal products or egg.
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 contact 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.
In the meantime, please continue to abide by all the social distancing and hand hygiene guidance, which will still save lives
For more information about the vaccine, please visit www.nhs.uk or see these frequently asked questions.

FLU VACCINATIONS

Some appointments now available to book on-line

It is not too late to get your flu vaccination - we still have stocks of vaccine and would encourage anyone who has not yet been vaccinated but is entitled to their free flu jab to get one as soon as possible.

Please note that we are now vaccinating people in the 50-64-year old age group will This is to ensure that those who are most at risk are vaccinated first. If you are 50-64 please telephone to book your appointment or book on line if you have access to this facility.

Your GP is here for you - your appointment will initially be by telephone, but if the doctor wishes to see you then arrangements will be made for you to attend the surgery.

We ask that anyone who is coming to the surgery can wear a face covering at all times.

The NHS is here for you when you need us. If you’re worried you might have symptoms of cancer or any other concerns about your health please call your GP practice or NHS 111. Please do not leave anything to chance, your NHS – including your GP practice - is still here for you.
