Covid information

Covid vaccination - first dose

The primary care led vaccination sites are focusing on those cohorts of people based on age groups or if they are clinically vulnerable. Please do not call or write to us requesting that you be vaccinated ahead of others, we are working as fast as possible to contact all eligible patients in turn.

We are contacting eligible patients and offering appointments. Please make sure your contact numbers are up to date.

 

If you are not in one of these cohorts, you might be turned away.


The national vaccination centres may have more flexibility. Please click on the link for more information:

Thank you very much for your understanding and support during these difficult times.

Covid vaccination - second dose

For those who haven't been invited for their second dose, please be aware that you will be contacted around 10 weeks after your first dose. If it hasn’t been 10 weeks since you had it, please wait to be contacted as we are not able to book anyone in before that time.

Vaccination centres follow government and local NHS authorities’ guidelines on what type of vaccines are offered to patients, therefore, choosing the type of vaccination is not possible.


The practice is not able to provide letters or certificates confirming an exemption for using masks.

Confirmation of your vaccination status

The surgery is unable to issue a letter or certificate confirming your vaccination status for overseas travel. Please see Government guidance for further information.

Proof of your vaccination status is visible within the NHSapp, which is available for Apple and Android devices.

Alternatively, you can call the NHS Covid-19 helpline on 119 and ask for a letter to be posted to you. This must be at least five days after you have completed your course of the vaccine, the letter may to take up to seven days to reach you.


Please check Foreign Office and local travel advice for specific details of whether proof of vaccination status is accepted at your destination. The majority of countries, including the UK, still require arrivals to participate in a Covid-19 testing, isolation and/or quarantine regime, regardless of their vaccination status.
