Immunosuppressed Patients: Covid 3rd PRIMARY dose
There are a very small number of patients whom the JCVI and NHS have advised should have a 3rd PRIMARY dose. This should be given at least 8 weeks after the 2nd dose and may need to be given on a specific date in order to fit in with medications or treatments. Patients eligible should be contacted by their hospital consultants and will also be identified by searches in our practice information. If you have been advised to have your 3rd dose on a specific week then it is important to try and make that date.
In order to allow as much flexibility with these appointments dedicated clinics have been set up at PRH, RSH and RJAH. This should ensure there is a clinic available on the exact day you may require. Should we have a clinic available on the date needed then we can also book these with our surgery vaccine clinics.
To look at the clinics available and dates please follow the link you will be sent via text and letter
Please remember this Third Dose will then be followed with a Booster Dose 6 months (182 days) later.
If you are contacted by us for a 3rd dose but do not understand the reasoning, then please get in touch with the practice so we can look into it for you as the searches use can occasionally identify extra people.
NHS APP - COVID Vaccination Status
The Government has announced that from May 17th, people can demonstrate their COVID-19 vaccine status for travelling purposes, by accessing the NHS app, or by calling 119. People are strongly advised not to contact their GP to prove their vaccine status. We are unable to issue this certificate at the Practice.
Patients are advised to visit Gov.uk website for further information.
Proof of your vaccination status will be available on the NHS app, which is downloadable on your mobile phone. The App is also valuable for accessing you health records and ordering repeat prescriptions.
Alternatively, you can call the NHS helpline on 119 and ask for a letter to be posted to you. This must be at least 5 days after you've completed your course of the vaccine, the letter may take up to 5 days to reach you.
