Good Morning. We need your help. Please do not contact us about appointments for COVID vaccinations. GP practices only get allocated a certain number of vaccines at a time. We have to work through patient groups in order or priority, as set out by the government. We have just been vaccinating the most vulnerable patient group, which is mainly those over 80 years old. We understand how frustrating this is, but we are not able to make appointments for people calling in, and we can't say when people will be invited in next. As soon as we have more vaccines and appointment slots, we will call you. If you think you should have one because of your work, it will be for your employer to organise this. Thank you for your understanding.
If you have had your vaccine, then you may experience mild side effects. These include redness, swelling, warmth, itchiness, pain and tenderness at the injection site, and tiredness, headache, fever, nausea, chills, muscle aches and joint pains. You do not need to contact us to let us know. If you need to, you can take simple painkillers.
