Covid Vaccine

Coronavirus Vaccine:

Vaccinations for Little Bushey Surgery Patients are well underway at the Allum Lane Hub in Borehamwood. 

Little Bushey Surgery patients are being invited by our team to attend the vaccination centre according to priority groupings. 

Update: We have now booked all our over-80s and many of our 65-79yr olds & those that are in the Clinically Extremely Vulnerable (CEV) group to have their Covid vaccination jabs. We have now commenced with the booking of our 16-64 yrs old with underlying health conditions .
Once this cohort is completed, we will proceed to the next group: 60yrs+
 ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

As from 15th February, in line with national guidance, we will be contacting those patients aged between 16 to 64 years old who have certain underlying health conditions to offer COVID-19 vaccinations.

Eligible patients will receive a text message/phone call inviting them to book when we have appointments available. These invitations will be sent out in batches to help us manage demand.

Please do NOT contact the surgery prior to receiving a text message/call as this will only clog our telephone lines preventing access for patients who require medical help.

We will contact you via text message containing a link through which you will be able to book your own appointment online. If you receive a text message with a link to “accurx.thirdparty.nhs.uk”, please be assured that it is genuine. Further information may be found at: https://support.accurx.com/en/articles/4794856-i-have-been-invited-to-book-my-covid-19-vaccination-through-accurx-thirdparty-nhs-uk-is-this-legitimate

For those patients who do not have a mobile, be assured that we will be contacting them directly on their landlines.

Vaccinations for eligible 16 and 17 year olds:  if you are aged 16 or 17 and qualify for a vaccine because you have a learning disability, are a front-line health or social care worker, or have a specified underlying health condition, you will be offered the Pfizer vaccine, because this is the only vaccine that is currently licenced for people of your age. We will contact you to make these arrangements.

Please note: as a surgery we receive an allocation of appointments as they become available.  We do not have control over the number of vaccinations that we receive or the timing of them.  We are working through the eligible groups in accordance with NHS guidelines

 --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Patients aged 70+ who do not yet have an appointment to receive their first COVID-19 vaccination are now encouraged to book online or over the phone, even if they have not received a letter...

You can book an appointment via  the online national booking service: www.nhs.uk/covid-vaccination. Through this system, eligible patients are able to choose a time slot and location at one of the large centres, or at one of the community pharmacies taking part in the national programme.  

Alternatively, bookings can be made by calling 119 free of charge, anytime between 7am and 11pm seven days a week.

Alternatively, you may wish to book via our practice by calling 0208 386 8888.

You will be asked your date of birth to be able to proceed with the booking.  
 
If appt slots are already full when you go to book your appointment, please do not worry, we will send you another link as soon as more vaccine clinics are made available.

NHS Letter received for Covid Vaccination (for those over 70 years old)
 
 
Covid-19 Vaccination Statement - HVCCG
We are closely adhering to the national guidance from NHS England in their update on 11.01.2021 stating that no further second doses should be given ahead of 12 weeks at this time. The approach must be to prioritise vaccinating people with their first dose followed by the second dose in 12 weeks’ time. This is to ensure we can vaccinate as many people as possible.
We would like to thank our patients for their understanding and help in supporting us to vaccinate patients as per current government guidance

 

Many thanks for your patience in this matter.
