Covid Vaccination – Update!

Covid Vaccination second doses
When you are called for your second dose of the vaccine, please do make sure that you have it. It’s really important you get your 2nd vaccination to make sure you are fully protected from coronavirus. Please call the practice now if you think your second dose is due.  We will be happy to talk through any questions you may have about your vaccination.

Covid Vaccination – those opting into phase 2
Over the last five months we have vaccinated thousands of Manchester patients and are so grateful to everyone involved in the programme.
We are now focussing on cohorts 10-12 (ages 18 – 49) and patients within this age range will be contacted when it is their turn to be vaccinated.
Patients will receive
•           A text, call or letter from their GP Practice
•           A letter or text from the National Booking Service inviting them to book at the mass vaccination centre or local vaccination site.

We will also continue to provide second doses for those patients who have already received their first vaccination. Your second dose of the vaccine is just as important as the first. You are not fully protected until you have had both doses so when you are called for your second, please do make sure that you have it. Please call the practice now if you think your second dose is due.  We will be happy to talk through any questions you may have about your vaccination.

Covid Vaccination – those opting out of phase 2
Over the last five months we have vaccinated thousands of Manchester patients and are so grateful to everyone involved in the programme.
The vaccine programme is now focussing on cohorts 10 -12 (ages 18 – 49).  We have taken the decision to opt out of offering vaccination services for these cohorts to enable us to focus on our day-to-day GP services.
Patients registered at the practice between the age 18-49 will be invited for their vaccine via a text or letter from the National Booking Service and will be able to book an appointment online via nhs.uk/covid vaccination or by calling 119.
We will continue to provide second doses to our patients who received their first dose through the practice. When you are called for your second dose of the vaccine, please do make sure that you have it. It’s really important you get your 2nd vaccination to make sure you are fully protected from coronavirus. Please call the practice now if you think your second dose is due.  We will be happy to talk through any questions you may have about your vaccination.
