STATEMENT ON GP PRACTICE WORKING DURING PANDEMIC

  • COVID 19 Booster programme Information 28.9.21

     What is the COVID-19 booster programme?

    The COVID-19 booster programme is the rollout of an additional vaccine dose to people who have previously received two doses of a COVID-19 vaccine to ensure continued protection for those most at risk from COVID-19.

     Why is the COVID-19 booster programme needed?

    To provide the people that are most likely to become seriously ill from COVID-19 and those who care for them with the best possible protection for this winter.

     Who is eligible for the COVID-19 booster vaccine?

    Stage 1.

    • adults aged 16 years and over who are immunosuppressed;
    • those living in residential care homes for older adults;
    • all adults aged 70 years or over;
    • adults aged 16 years and over who are considered clinically extremely vulnerable;
    • frontline health and social care workers.

    Stage 2.

    • all adults aged 50 years and over
    • adults aged 16 – 49 years who are in an influenza or COVID-19 at-risk group.

                                 (please refer to the Green Book for details of at-risk groups)

    • adult household contacts of immunosuppressed individuals

     If eligible when and where can you get a vaccination?

    This GP Practice IS delivering boosters and so there is a choice of where to have the vaccination.

     Eligible patients will be invited to book an appointment directly by the NHS and the GP Practice (Purbeck Health Centres delivery of this service is still in the planning stage).

    Patients are asked not to contact the surgery.

     Once patients have received their invitation they can book via the National Booking System to be vaccinated at the Vaccination Centre or local Pharmacy or via the Practice booking system to book at the practice/centre – they must please wait for an invitation to do this. There are NO walk-in facilities for boosters to ensure safety.

     How long is it between 2nd dose and booster?

    Patients need to wait a minimum of 6 months (26 weeks) for their Covid 19 booster vaccination.  Please wait for the invitation – do not contact the surgery.

     Can a booster be given if the first course hasn’t been completed?

    No, patients need to finish the first course of their vaccination before a booster can be given.

    Are 1st doses still available?

    Yes– please book via the National Booking System online or telephone  119.

     Do patients need to be observed after vaccination and can they drive?

    Yes all recipients of the Pfizer BioNTech and Moderna vaccines are observed and monitored for a minimum of 15 minutes.  They can drive after the 15 minute observation period.

    Text Messaging from the NHS

    The NHS nationally is sending text messages to eligible people to invite them to book a vaccine appointment.

     You can trust the text message is genuine if it comes from ‘NHSvaccine’, includes a link to the NHS.uk website and gives them the option of phoning 119.

     Cancelling an appointment.

    Please use the original method for booking it – if you booked via the National Booking System log back on and cancel there.  If via their practice system, log in to that and cancel directly.

     Will the vaccine become a yearly injection like the flu vaccine?

    Booster doses of COVID-19 vaccine are not yet recommended because the need for, and timing of, boosters has not yet been determined.

    How will housebound patients / care home residents be vaccinated?

    This GP Practice IS vaccinating as part of the booster programme and so they will be contacted by the practice and an appointment made for a home vaccination.
