Covid-19 Vaccinations

COVID BOOSTERS and FLU VACCINES!

It’s coming up to that time of year again when all those over 50 years,  and those under 50 who are classed as ‘at-risk’, can receive their free NHS flu vaccine.

This year, our expectation is that we will be able to give you a third COVID vaccine at the same time as your flu vaccine, once confirmed by the government in early September. The COVID booster will help top-up your immunity levels as we enter the autumn and winter, and needs to be given more than 6 months since your second dose.

We shall therefore be inviting you to book for both vaccines in the same appointment, starting with the higher age groups and those others most at risk, as follows:

Stage 1:

-adults aged 16 years and over who are immunosuppressed

-those living in residential care homes for older adults

-all adults aged 70 years or over

-adults aged 16 years and over who are considered clinically extremely vulnerable

-frontline health and social care workers

Stage 2:

-all adults aged 50 years and over

-adults aged 16 to 49 years who are in an influenza or COVID-19 at-risk group. (Refer to the Green Book for details of at-risk groups)

-adult household contacts of immunosuppressed individuals

Our invitations are being sent out via SMS text to those with mobile phones, and to those without by email, letter, or a telephone call from our booking team. Once you receive your invite, you will be asked to book online via a 'link' or contact the booking line on 01425 611788 to book your appointments, Monday-Friday 08.30am - 1pm, if you have no access to internet.

When you have a booked appointment for your vaccine, it is really important you attend so that you don't deny others the opportunity to receive theirs as soon as possible. If you are not able to attend, then please telephone our booking line, 01425 611788 Monday - Friday between 8.30am and 1.00pm, or your site's reception team outside these hours.

For International Travel - Your Name On Your Covid Pass Must Match Your Passport!

Please check that the name on your passport matches how it is displayed by the NHS COVID PASS in good time before you plan to travel. If the names are different (check middle names, married and maiden names) you will need to update your details with us.

The quickest and simplest way to do this is via our online services 'SystmOnline'.  Login and go to 'Account' and 'Change Contact Details'. Type in your name that matches your passport and click 'Submit New Contact Details'. 

If you do not have access to SystmOnline you may contact us in the following ways and you will need to allow 2 weeks for your amendments to be administered:

  1. You may use eConsult 'Administrative Help' but please note we are only expected to make a response to your query within 48 hours and not to 'resolve' it in that time frame.
  2. You may post your request for a name change, with your date of birth and address, to your usual surgery.
