COVID-19 Vaccination Rollout

13th December 2021

Dear Patients,

We are aware the government has announced more people will be entitled to have Covid Booster Vaccinations. The additional clinics needed and the staff to run the clinics have not been set up yet.

PLEASE DO NOT CONTACT THE SURGERY VIA E-MAIL OR OVER THE TELEPHONE REGARDING YOUR COVID VACCINATIONS.

The NHS or the Practice will contact you and invite you in for your vaccination. Please do not contact the surgery to ask when you will be invited this is preventing people getting through to the surgery for urgent care.

Thank you.

Julie Stewart

Practice Manager

Seasonal Flu and COVID Boosters – Provisional Information

We have reached that time of year again when we need to start thinking about seasonal influenza vaccinations. As you know the Waterside PCN has been providing a successful COVID vaccination programme throughout the year (based at Applemore Leisure Centre), which started in December 2020.
This winter, in conjunction with the seasonal flu vaccination, we also must provide a COVID booster programme. The seasonal flu vaccine will be offered to the same group of patients who require a COVID booster. It makes sense therefore that we deliver our flu vaccinations at the same time as the boosters.
Currently the NHS is waiting for confirmation from the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) that this will be possible. We hope that this confirmation is imminent.
Once approved, we intend to start running joint COVID and flu clinics (hopefully from around mid-September).
As soon as we can, we will start inviting you to our clinics.
In the meantime:
•Please ensure we have up-to-date mobile number, or that of a next of kin 
•For those patients who don’t have mobiles, please provide an email address where possible.
•Keep watching our website or Facebook pages for updates.
