LATEST UPDATE REGARDING COVID-19 VACCINATION

IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING THE COVID-19 VACCINATION

Broomhill & Lodge Moor Surgeries are working closely with the other local practices within our Primary Care Network to provide a COVID-19 vaccine service for all of our patients.

The vaccines will be administered at a COVID-19 vaccine centre that we have set up at St. Columba’s Church in Crosspool with our colleagues in the other practices within our network.

PLEASE DO NOT CONTACT THE SURGERY TO ENQUIRE ABOUT THE VACCINE

(PLEASE DO NOT CONTACT ST.COLUMBA’s CHURCH TO ENQUIRE ABOUT THE VACCINE)


WE WILL BE CONTACTING PATIENTS DIRECTLY TO ARRANGE VACCINATION BASED ON THE NATIONAL GUIDELINES













How the COVID-19 vaccine is given?


On arrival at St Columba’s Church Hall you will be asked to check in with one of the reception team.


You will be provided with some written information regarding the vaccine.


It is important you have read this information and consent to having the vaccine before you go ahead.


There will be several clinicians vaccinating at the centre at any one time.


Please wait in your designated waiting area to be called forward by one of the vaccinators.


You will be asked if you have read and understand the information provided and that you consent to receiving the vaccine.

 

The COVID-19 vaccine will then be given as an injection into your upper arm.


You will be required to remain at the site for 15 minutes after you have had your vaccine for a period of observation.


If you feel unwell during this period of observation please alert a member of staff immediately.


It is important that you must not drive for 15 minutes after the vaccine is administered.



The vaccines are given as 2 doses, at least 21 to 28 days apart (depending on which vaccine you are given)


The Government has now recommended a change in vaccination strategy to focus on administering the first dose of the vaccine to as many patients as quickly and safely as possible.


It is now recommended that the second dose is given within 12 weeks of the first dose of the vaccine.  



In order to assist us to run the service as efficiently and safely as possible:
