COVID Vaccination Update 25.05.21
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 (from 17th May) 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.
Second Dose of the life saving COVID-19 Vaccination is vital for maximum protection
If you have had the first part of your life-saving COVID-19 vaccination, it’s absolutely vital that you take up the offer of the second part.
Vaccinations offer the best protection against coronavirus and are hugely important in helping us to lead a more normal life as restrictions begin to ease. The second dose gives everyone the strongest possible protection against COVID-19, so it’s crucial that you take up this offer as soon as you are invited.
Recent evidence shows that some people are mistakenly thinking that they are vaccinated with just one dose, but a second part of the vaccination is vital. Remember, the most effective protection comes from having both parts of the vaccine, so it’s important you do not put off your appointment for your second jab if you have already had your first.
If you had your vaccination 11 weeks ago and you haven’t already been contacted, we will be contacting you very shortly for the second part of your vaccination which the NHS has allocated to you. So, please do attend your appointment and get in touch with us if you think this is overdue.
