Covid-19 vaccination

Covid-19 vaccine information
 
We will shortly be looking to invite our first cohort of eligible patients to have their covid vaccination This will be an appointment only system.
The first cohort includes everyone over the age of 80 . You do not need to enquire which cohort you are in ; we will contact you !
 
Please try to avoid contacting us regarding the covid vaccine as we are going to be stretched to capacity trying to deliver this mammoth campaign.
 
We hope to gain your consent to vaccinate prior to your appointment date as we have a very large number to get through each day . We ask that if possible you start to consider whether you wish to have the vaccine as we will not be able to discuss this with you in any great detail on the day. Saying that, we won’t be able to make this decision for you or offer much clinical advice about whether you should have this vaccination as it is a new vaccine .
 
We will not be inviting you in the first few cohorts if we feel that it is not advised that you have it ( for example if you have had previous severe allergic reactions to vaccines or medication) Please be reassured that this vaccine has passed all the relevant safety checks as all other vaccines have and is a safe vaccine.
 
Unfortunately due to the constraints around the storage of this vaccine we have been told that we will not be able to vaccinate you at the surgery. Our vaccination hub will be at John Coupland hospital in Gainsborough and we will be working together with Trent valley surgery to deliver this programme . We have not being given another option regarding this location
 
The Lincolnshire CCG is working hard with taxi companies and voluntary car schemes to be able to assist with transportation where needed but we would ask that where possible you try to arrange your own transport
 
As soon as we have an official start date we will be in touch. Again it is important to note that we can’t pick our appointment dates .. this will be done nationally dependant on vaccine delivery slots so we will be unable to offer a wide range of slot days and times.
 
You will also need to be aware that you will need 2 vaccinations , the second 21 days after your first dose in order for your immune system to activate to fight the virus. After you have been given your first vaccination we will book you in for your second vaccine. We ask that you try to commit to this date as again choice will be limited.
 
Our staff are dedicated to vaccinate our entire practice populations which will involve extremely long hours possibly working weekends and bank holidays for months to come so we ask that patients support us in this by understanding that services at the surgery delivering the day to day requirements may be reduced to emergencies only on the vaccination days. If we all work together we can beat this awful virus and return to a normal safe and healthy future
