COVID VACS UPDATE


PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU ATTEND YOUR SECOND VACCINE APPOINTMENTS. WE HAVE HAD A LOT OF DNA'S AND WE DO NOT WANT WASTED VACCINES.  WE CAN NOT GUARANTEE YOU WILL GET A SECOND VACCINE IF YOU DO NOT ATTEND YOUR BOOKED APPOINTMENT.


NHSE are now inviting patients 18 and over to attend Central Birmingham Millenium Point Mass vaccination centre and others, this is an alternative to  your local PCN run clinics, but if you wish to book and attend the Birmingham Clinics please follow the instructions on the letter when you receive it or visit www.nhs.uk/conditions.coronavirus-covid-19/coronavirus-vaccine/ 


The surgery and local PCN are continuing to do 2nd vaccines and when vaccines are available 1st vaccines too.


If you have a mobile telephone number that you are happy for us to identify as your preferred method of contact (we can then send you text invitations / messages which saves time in getting messages to you) please let us know by texting the words "sms consent" to 07756525536 with your full name, we will then amend your records. Thank you



Travel Vaccinationsglobal air travel

If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to make an appointment with the practice nurse to discuss your travel arrangements. This will include which countries and areas within countries that you are visiting to determine what vaccinations are required.

There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below

Europe Europe & Russia North America North America
Central America Central America South America South America
Caribbean Caribbean Africa Africa
Middle East Middle East Central Asia Central Asia
East Asia East Asia Australasia Australasia and Pacific

It is important to make this initial appointment as early as possible - at least 6 weeks before you travel - as a second appointment will be required with the practice nurse to actually receive the vaccinations. These vaccines have to be ordered as they are not a stock vaccine. Your second appointment needs to be at least 2 weeks before you travel to allow the vaccines to work.

Some travel vaccines are ordered on a private prescription and these incur a charge over and above the normal prescription charge. This is because not all travel vaccinations are included in the services provided by the NHS.
