Covid-19 information

Covid-19 update 25.5.2021

Bodriggy Health Centre local vaccination service

This service will cease form Wednesday 30th June 2021

From Wednesday 30th June 2021, vaccine services will no longer be delivered from Bodriggy health centre. Remaining patients requiring vaccination will be able to access other local vaccination services including hospital hubs, community pharmacies and larger vaccination centres which are now in place to deliver this service. This will allow GP practice teams to fully focus their time on their usual services to patients.

To book an appointment use the NHS online booking service at www.nhs.uk/covid-vaccination or call 119.

Patients who have already had their first dose Astra Zeneca vaccine at Bodriggy Health Centre will be invited for their second or will be able to book as above. Anyone who is due their second dose Pfizer vaccination should book in using the National Booking Service.

So where can I get my vaccine from?

For all other patients yet to be invited for their first dose, you will be contacted by the NHS when it is your turn and invited to book an appointment using the national booking service at www.nhs.uk/covid-vaccination or calling 119. You will be given the option of attending a local participating pharmacy or vaccination centre.  It’s important that when you get your invitation, you take up the offer of having the vaccine, as you will be protecting yourself and friends and family around you.

Will I have to wait longer?

No, you shouldn’t have to wait any longer for your vaccine.

I fall in to one of the first cohorts – how can I get my vaccine?

If you are 38 years old or older or are in another eligible group and haven’t had your first vaccine yet, it’s important you are vaccinated as soon as possible.  You can access an appointment from the national booking service at www.nhs.uk/covid-vaccination or by phoning 119.

What about getting my second dose of the vaccine?

Patients who have already had their first dose Astra Zeneca vaccine at Bodriggy Health Centre will be invited for their second or will be able to book as above. Anyone who is due their second dose Pfizer vaccination should book in using the National Booking Service. If you have any problems booking your second vaccination please contact the surgery.

Are you withdrawing from the programme because there is a problem with the rollout of the vaccine?

There are no issues with the further rollout of the vaccine programme.  When we were asked to help deliver the COVID-19 vaccination programme it was to vaccinate people in cohorts 1 – 9 only.  Large scale vaccination sites were not up and running at that point and we wished to support getting our most vulnerable groups vaccinated as quickly as possible.

There are several other services in this area that have sufficient capacity to be able to vaccinate everyone who is eligible when it is their turn including different vaccines required for different age groups.

Will the surgeries be providing a booster campaign in the autumn?

At present there is no confirmed information on how and when any booster campaign will be provided.  When this information is available the surgeries will consider the options available and will keep patients informed.

Where can I get more information about the vaccine?

You can find more information about the COVID-19 vaccination programme NHS.UK website.

 

 

 

Covid-19 update 24.5.2021

COVID -19  Vaccinations

Following extensive trials, 2 safe and effective vaccines for COVID-19 have been approved by regulators and are now being made available to us and are supplied to us in batches each week. The Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) has said that both the Pfizer/BioNTech and the Oxford/AstraZeneca vaccine ‘give very high protection against severe disease’ and both have good safety records. Both vaccines are being used across the county.

The NHS continues to prioritise those that the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) and the government has decided will benefit the most – specifically the over-80s, care home residents and all frontline health and care staff.

We are inviting people for vaccination in order of the priorities set out by the JCVI, starting with over 80s. Please do not contact us about the COVID-19 vaccination unless we have already contacted you.

When we do contact you, please attend your booked appointments with us.

Everyone at the practice is working extremely hard to make sure people receive their COVID-19 vaccine as quickly as possible. Please be patient with us during this time – we are working hard to vaccinate as quickly as possible using the supplies that we receive.

On days where GPs, nurses and other staff are supporting the roll-out of the COVID-19 vaccination programme, some routine appointments may be rescheduled to an alternative day. Urgent GP appointments will still be available, and patients will be seen if it is deemed appropriate.

More COVID-19 vaccination clinics are being made available all the time – everyone who is eligible according to national guidance will receive the vaccine in due course.

Hands, Face, Space remains key – even once people have been vaccinated.

You can get more information about the COVID-19 Vaccination online via the NHS website.

Guidance note for parents of children returning to school

Returning to school letter

Coronavirus (COVID-19)

The NHS and Public Health England (PHE) are extremely well prepared for outbreaks of new infectious diseases. The NHS has put in place measures to ensure the safety of all patients and NHS staff while also ensuring services are available to the public as normal. There is no need to order your medication early. We are unable to prescribe any more than your usual amount of medication as this will have an impact on supply for other patients.

Please talk to your pharmacy if you have any questions

We would like your help to slow the spread of COVID-19 and identify at risk cases sooner by self-reporting your symptoms daily, even if you feel well.  Please download the app https://covid.joinzoe.com/ and join millions of people supporting scientists to fight the virus.  Help identify (a) how fast the virus is spreading in our area (b) high-risk areas (c) who is most at risk, by better understanding symptoms linked to underlying health conditions.
