Coronavirus: Vaccination Clinics
We are now making plans for 2021 COVID-19 booster vaccine programme for individuals who received vaccination in Phase 1. (Priority groups 1 to 9)
A third dose (COVID-19 booster) vaccine will be offered to the following people:
- Those living in residential care homes for older adults
- All adults aged 50 years or over
- Frontline health and social care workers
- All those aged 16 to 49 years with underlying health conditions that put them at higher risk of severe COVID-19 (as set out in the green book), and adult carers
- Adult household contacts of immunosuppressed individuals”
In order to have the booster it also needs to be at least 6 months since your 2nd Covid vaccine and you have not tested positive for Covid in the last 28days.
We are starting to invite those patients eligible (you may also receive an invite direct from the NHSE). We are running our first BOOSTER clinic on Friday 1st October and another on Friday 15th October. We hope to offer the Winter Flu vaccine at the same time for those eligible.
If you are not yet eligible for a booster we are running separate Flu clinics (link to flu page)
We may have a small supply of vaccine for those still not fully vaccinated (aged 16 years +), please use the contact us page to enquire.
All our clinics run from the Sports Hall at Barton Neighbourhood Centre, Underhill Circus, Headington, Oxford, OX3 9LS
On the day arrangements
To ensure the safety of our patients and staff we will require you to follow the following instructions:
- On the day of the appointment if have any of the following symptoms you must not come to the practice, you must call to rearrange:
- a high temperature
- a new, continuous cough
- a loss or change to your sense of taste or smell
- If you live locally and are mobile please come on foot
- If you are a healthcare worker you will need to bring proof of your occupation. You will be turned away if you don't have this.
- Arrive at the time of your appointment, please do not arrive early
- You must wear a face covering at all times
- Please follow the instructions of the marshals. We will have a one-way system in place for patient safety
- You may need to queue outside so please be prepared to stand in the cold or rain
- When you enter the building you will need to remove your outer layers so that the top of your arm is exposed ready for your injection
- You will asked to queue at a safe distance from other patients
- You will be called to the next available clinician, regardless of who you are booked in with
We will try to operate this efficiently as possible to minimise waiting times but please come prepared with comfortable shoes in case you need to stand for longer than normal.
We will be operating a separate process on the day for people with mobility issues. If you fall into this category please let reception know when you have received notice of your appointment, and please flag to one of our marshals when you arrive on the day.
Those that are considered extremely clinically vulnerable are those patients that were told to shield during the height of the pandemic because their medical condition made them more vulnerable to infection.
