COVID VACCINE INFORMATION 2021 (updated 8/3/21)

We have already adminstered about 10000 covid vaccinations along with our colleagues in the Waterside Practice and our amazing volunteers and we have now started giving people their second doses whilst also inviting those over age 65 for their first vaccination. If it has been over 12 weeks since your first immunisation and it was done here, Emsoworth or Havant and you have not been contacted about your second immunisation please contact us via the surgery reception. Also if you are age over 65 and have not received your first vaccination please also contact us.

This has been a massive undertaking which due to the complexities of the vaccine and social distancing rules means that many of our staff are giving vaccines and much of our surgery space is occupied on the days we are vaccinating. On other days our staff are phoning hundreds of people to try and arrange their vaccines. We ask you to be mindful of this when you contact the surgery. Please be considerate to out staff who are under huge pressure at this time and please consider whether minor problems could await medical attention. At the same time if you are concerned that your symptoms could be due to something serious please don't hesitate to contact us and book a phone consultation with a doctor. For less urgent issues or uncertainties please consider the GP quick message system. Please note:

Please please do not telephone us to ask when or if you are going to get a Covid Vaccine.

We receive vaccines at short notice from the NHS and people are to be immunised in a risk order detremined by the NHS we are therefore contacting people to invite them for a immunisation when they are eligible and we have supplies.We are currently immunising those aged over 80.

Please act on your invitation when it comes, if you receive a text message it will not ask for any bank details to confirm identity.

You may stipulate a choice of vaccine but this will mean that your vaccination is likely to be considerably delayed. For all our benefit we must vaccinate as many people as possible as quickly as possible and then catch up with people who have made stipulations later.If you do not wish the vaccine we have at the time we call you then you will have to decline out invite and at a later date we will search for those who have not had a vaccination and re-invite them.

Please ensure you attend your appointment and on the day of your appointment and afterwards please continue to abide by all the social distancing and hand hygiene guidance, which will still save lives.

Thank you for your patience

Dr Turner and Partners and Dominique Lewsey (Operations Manager)
