COVID 19 Vaccination Programme Update

We are no longer running a Covid 19 vaccination service at this practice. Please find information below for patients on to access vaccine services locally.

Awaiting first dose?

Once eligible, patients will be invited by the National Booking Service to book an appointment at one of the local Vaccination Centres or Pharmacy sites. You can book your Covid Vaccination onlline or by calling 119.

For people under 40 years old without other health conditions, it's currently advised that it's preferable to have another COVID 19 vaccine instead of the Oxford AstraZeneca vaccine. You can find out further information in the latest patient covid vaccination information leaflet

Awaiting second dose?

Any patient who received their first dose at the practice but has not yet taken up their invite for their second dose can still book your Covid Vaccination appointment online or by calling 119. 

You will be asked for your name, postcode and NHS number (patients can still book if do not have this) and then you will be offered a choice of appointments at one of the local Vaccination Centres or Pharmacy sites that is offering the same vaccine as you received for your first dose.

Current guidance recommends you receive your second dose between eight and 12 weeks after your first dose. However, if it has been over 12 weeks you are still encouraged to book an appointment to receive your second dose to ensure you have maximum protection.

The COVID 19 vaccine is safe and effective and protects you and those around you. It’s the biggest vaccination programme in NHS history and has already saved thousands of lives by preventing the spread of Covid-19.

Covid 19 Booster doses - we will not be doing these at Wansford Surgery.  We await further guidance from NHS England.
