COVID-19 Vaccination Information

COVID-19 Vaccination for Eligible Adults

 COVID-19 vaccinations are now available to adults identified by the JCVI (Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation) as being at highest risk of catching the disease and of suffering serious complication COVID-19. If you are eligible, a member of our team will be contacting you to book an appointment. We also require your consent for vaccination.

This vaccination will be free of charge and our highest priority is delivering the vaccines to eligible patients as soon as the vaccine becomes available.

Through vaccination of those at highest risk, we aim to help protect individuals from becoming unwell with the COVID-19 disease.

A leaflet on COVID-19 vaccination is on the following link – please read:

For women of childbearing age, please read the detailed guidance at:

Early indications are that some vaccine recipients may experience a painful/heavy arm at the injection site and may feel tired, or have a mild fever for a couple of days. These are common side effects following vaccinations. If required, Paracetamol may help to reduce these effects and keep you as comfortable as possible following vaccination. Please read the product information for more details on the vaccine and possible side effects by searching Coronavirus Yellow Card.

During the vaccination delivery, we will maintain the range of measures we have in place to reduce the risk of contracting COVID-19. Staff involved in administering the vaccine will be wearing personal protective equipment and will adhere to all infection prevention control measures.

By arriving at the Heath Centre at your dedicated appointment time and providing your arm for vaccination when requested, you have consented to receiving the vaccine. This is implied consent. It is important to have read the information contained within the leaflet (link above). Thank you.
