Across the country COVID-19 vaccinations are being offered to everyone over the age of 70 and those who are clinically extremely vulnerable. So far, most patients vaccinated from this practice have received their vaccination at Clifton Hampden Village Hall.
To speed up vaccinations being given, mass vaccination sites and some pharmacies are also offering the jab; these are being managed nationally.
You do not need to wait for a letter from the NHS. If you are aged over 70 or are clinically extremely vulnerable, you can book an appointment by visiting this website: http://www.nhs.uk/covid-vaccination or by phoning 119. You will need your NHS number and date of birth which will be used to confirm you are eligible for the vaccination now. You can find your NHS number on any correspondence for hospital appointments or using the NHS website here. Those that are considered extremely clinically vulnerable are those patients that were told to shield during the height of the pandemic because their medical condition made them more vulnerable to infection.
If you choose to book a vaccination at one of the vaccination centres that are open every day, you may get your vaccination sooner but you may need to travel further.
If you prefer, you can wait to be contacted by us and have your vaccination at Clifton Hampden Village Hall. We are making really good progress but are not running vaccination clinics every day. We do expect all patients over 70 to have had their vaccination by mid February.
Whichever option you choose, it is important to be aware that you will need to have your second dose at the same place where you had your first dose and this cannot be changed.
