COVID-19

COVID-19 Booster Vaccinations

The COVID-19 booster vaccine campaign is now underway.

People who are more vulnerable to the virus are being invited to top up their protection ahead of winter six months or more after receiving their second jab.

Those in line for a booster jab include everyone aged 50 and over, frontline health and social care workers and those aged between 16 and 49 with an underlying health condition putting them at greater risk from the virus.

You must be at 182 days (six months and a week) from the date of your second vaccination to book a booster.

How do I get my booster?

Our local service is being held at the Strand Medical.

To receive your vaccination:

  • You will be contacted by the team running the local service to arrange an appointment. This may be by text, letter or phone call.
  • You can use the National Booking Service website or by calling 119 when you receive an invite from the national service (a text or a letter). You will be invited when you are six months and a week. You may be eligible and at the six months mark, and the NBS says you are not eligible yet. This is simply a timing issue to add you to the system – please keep trying over the coming days.

 

Requests for evidence of Covid vaccination

Please do not approach us for letters or evidence of your Covid vaccination, GP surgeries are not equipped to provide this information, please see the official government advice below:

please follow this link for more information: https://www.gov.uk/guidance/demonstrating-your-covid-19-vaccination-status-when-travelling-abroad

How to access your COVID-19 vaccination status

You can access your COVID-19 vaccination status through the free NHS App from 17 May. You can access the app through mobile devices such as a smartphone or by tablet. Proof of your COVID-19 vaccination status will be shown within the NHS App. We recommend that you register with the app before booking international travel.

If you do not have access to a smartphone and know that the country you are travelling to requires COVID-19 vaccination status, you can call the NHS helpline on 119 (from 17 May) and ask for a letter to be posted to you. This must be at least 5 days after you’ve completed your course of the vaccine. We expect the letter to take up to 5 days to reach you.

Do not contact your GP surgery about your COVID-19 vaccination status. GPs cannot provide letters showing your COVID-19 vaccination status.

House Bound patients – COVID-19 Vaccine 

All housebound patients have now been offered the vaccination, if you have not or you have missed our contacts please call the booking line.

Care/Nursing Homes – COVID-19 Vaccine

Due to the high number of patients in care/nursing homes that are registered with different surgeries, we are working with local Practices to administer the vaccine. Therefore it is probable that a nurse or doctor from another surgery will visit the care home and administer the vaccine. This will save multiple nurses attending the same home to deliver the vaccine to different patients.

If your Care/Nursing home has not yet been vaccinated, please call the booking line.
