Service Update

Update on the COVID-19 booster programme

Across Cambridgeshire and Peterborough the NHS and its partners are working extremely hard to roll out the COVID-19 booster vaccination programme to our communities.

All adults are eligible from Monday 13 December, and you will be able to book via the National Booking System from Wednesday 15 December.

You can book your booster for 3 months from the date of second vaccine, and you can access the National Booking System to book the appointment from 2 months.

We are working at pace to increase the availability of appointments so that there are plenty of options for people on the National Booking System. Some local vaccination services may also contact patients directly.

New appointments are being added every day across our vaccination services. Further availability will come online from Wednesday 15 December.

We will be working with all of our sites to take further steps to increase what they can offer again, including opening later and on more days.

All of these appointments will be added to the National Booking System and so we encourage everyone who is aged 18 years and over, is yet to have their booster and who is approaching 3 months from your second vaccine to use the National Booking System to arrange your appointment when you are able to do so.

In terms of any planned appointments with us, there are no changes at the current time and everyone should attend your planned appointments as normal. If we need to make any changes, we will contact you directly.

PLEASE CONTINUE TO WEAR A FACE COVERING

We continue to offer face to face appointments but these are bookable by the GP following a telephone consultation in the first instance. Our waiting room is now limited to a maximum of 4 patients at any one time. Our reception team will advise you.

We do ask that patients attending the surgery continue to wear a face covering, use hand santiser and observe social distancing.

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.
