Covid-19 Vaccine Boosters
Most people who are eligible for the #COVID19
booster will be offered a dose of either the Pfizer/BioNTech or Moderna vaccines.
This means your booster dose may be different from the vaccines you had for your first and second doses.
Medical exemption from vaccination
COVID-19 medical exemptions: proving you are unable to get vaccinated - GOV.UK (www.gov.uk)
Please phone the NHS COVID Pass service on 119 to ask for an NHS COVID Pass medical exemptions application form.
Some individuals are unable to be vaccinated and/or tested for medical reasons. You can apply for proof that you have a medical reason why you should not be vaccinated and/or tested.
If you get this proof of medical exemption you’ll be able to use the NHS COVID Pass wherever you need to prove your COVID-19 status within England.
You should not ask your GP for an application form. If you do go to your GP before you get your application form you’ll be asked to call the NHS COVID pass service on 119.
Patient update: Face masks to continue
We would like to ask all visitors to the Health Centre to support us in continuing to wear masks and socially distance whilst in the building. There are two reasons for this. Firstly, we have a lot of vulnerable people who visit us for various treatments and despite immunisation they remain at risk from Covid infections. Secondly, we need you to help keep all our staff safe from infection as the requirement to self-isolate could put our staying open in jeopardy if enough staff are affected at one time. All our frontline staff are double-immunised and we will continue to wear masks and take precautions not to get infected and become infectious. We hope you will help us to continue to keep everyone safe by wearing a mask and social-distancing in the building.
All information we have posted over the last few months can be viewed on our surgery page which has been uploaded. Please click on "Read our Newsletter".
