COVID INFORMATION

Proof of your COVID-19 Vaccinations ("Passport")

People in England who have both vaccine doses will be able to demonstrate their COVID-19 vaccination status via the NHS App from 17 May. Those without access to the app can request a letter from the NHS proving their vaccination status by calling 119. 

 

COVID-19 Booster Vaccine: You must be 2 months from the date of your second vaccination to arrange your booster – and you will be able to have it when you are three months from your second vaccination;

  • The best step if you are at 2 months from the date of your second vaccination is to go on the National Booking System website –  or call 119 – and there you will be able to see all the available appointments. More and more are added every day so if you can’t see a local service, try later in the day or the next day;
  • All of the vaccination services are working at pace to increase the number of appointments they can offer.

You will need to book your COVID-19 booster by calling 119, seven days a week, between 7am and 11pm. You can also look for a walk-in COVID-19 vaccination site convenient to you.

COVID-19 Vaccine First and Second Dose: If you haven’t had a first or second dose yet, it’s not too late. Visit the National Booking Service website or call 119 to book yours.

 The coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccines are safe and effective. They give you the best protection against COVID-19. It is important you have the vaccine, even if you have had COVID-19 or think you have had the virus, because it will make your immune system stronger and reduce the risk of spreading the virus or having COVID-19 symptoms again.

Chadsfield Medical Practice has put in place measures to ensure the safety of all patients and NHS staff while also ensuring services are available to the public as normal. Testing of suspected coronavirus cases is carried out in line with strict guidelines and NOT done at the practice. This means that suspected cases are kept in isolation, away from public areas of GP surgeries, pharmacies and hospitals and returned home also in isolation. Any equipment that comes into contact with suspected cases is thoroughly cleaned as appropriate. Patients can be reassured that safety is everyone’s top priority and are encouraged to attend appointments as usual.

If you have a new cough or  fever phone NHS 119 or go online https://111.nhs.uk/ Or ring 999 if emergency

If you have an appointment at the surgery and develop any symptoms you must NOT attend your appointment but follow advice above. If you have had a recent covid test do NOT attend the surgery until you have received a result and it is negative and your period of self isolation is over, unless directed to attend by your GP. If in doubt phone the surgery before attending.
