COVID-19 - VACCINATIONS

Vaccination is the most important thing you can do to protect your community against serious illnesses.  When enough people get vaccinated, it’s harder for a disease to spread to those who can’t have vaccines.

 

We know many people are interested in the COVID-19 vaccination and want to assure you that we are working through a priority list set by the Department of Health.  Please do not contact your GP about getting the vaccine. We will contact patients in order of priority. 

 

All Patients  in the following groups can contact the vaccination centre to have their Covid 19 vaccination by booking online @ https://vaccinations.covid-19.hscni.net/booking or phone 03002007813

  • Anyone who is 16 years of age by 31/3/2021 who has received a recent shielding letter (Clinically Extremely Vulnerable)
  • Anyone who is between 65 and 69 years of age
  • Anyone who is a Carer and is aged 18 and over by 31/3/2021

New Practice Boundary:

To provide the best care for our existing patients we have decided to  reduce our practice radius to 5.5 miles of the surgery.

Any existing patients who CHANGE address to a new address outside the radius will also be asked to re-register with a GP surgery closer to them.

 

 

Travel Vaccinationsglobal air travel

If you are planning foreign travel you may need vaccinations. According to which countries and areas within countries that you are visiting will determine what vaccinations are required.

There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below

It is important to make this initial contact with the surgery as early as possible - at least 6 weeks before you travel - as an appointment will be required with the nurse to actually receive the vaccinations. The receptionist will be able to provide you with a travel form for you to complete for the doctor. The doctor will then prepare travel advice and prescriptions as necessary according to the information you have provided on the form. There will be a £15.00 fee for the administration and processing of this form.

 These vaccines may have to be ordered by the local pharmacy so allow time for this. You will need to make an appointment in advance for the nurse tohave your vaccinations administered. Your vaccinations should be at least 2 weeks before you travel to allow them to work.

Some travel vaccines are ordered on a private prescription and these incur a charge over and above the normal prescription charge.This is because not all travel vaccinations are included in the services provided by the NHS.
