Covid-19 Vaccination Update
We are pleased to inform our patients that our Covid Vaccination Programme has now commenced. Our vaccination programme at present is being delivered with several other local practices from Hinckley Leisure Centre in Argents Mead, Hinckley but we are hopeful that this may be delivered from our surgery in coming months. Appointments will be offered at Hinckley Leisure Centre on both on weekdays and weekends.
Patients will be called in the priority groups defined by NHS England:
- all those 80 years of age and over and frontline health and social care workers - This group is almost complete. Please let us know if you have not yet been called.
- residents in a care home for older adults and their carers
- all those 75 years of age and over
- all those 70 years of age and over and clinically extremely vulnerable individuals
- all those 65 years of age and over
- all individuals aged 16 years to 64 years with underlying health conditions which put them at higher risk of serious disease and mortality
- all those 60 years of age and over
- all those 55 years of age and over
- all those 50 years of age and over
Our surgery staff will be contacting eligible patients, either by telephone or by letter, to invite them to attend for their vaccination. We apologise if you may be contacted at short notice but this will be due to the timing of our vaccine delivery.
When attending your appointment, please wear loose clothing that can be removed easily and a face mask. Please do not attend if you have Covid symptoms or feel unwell.
Patients attending Hinckley Leisure Centre will be assisted and signposted by marshalls. Vaccine delivery will be undertaken by our own surgery staff or by volunteers who have been approved to work with us.
You will be asked to sign a consent form on arrival before being passed to our clinicians. Clinicians will ask several screening questions before administering your vaccine. Once you have received your vaccine, you will be asked to wait for 15 minutes before being allowed to leave. We will then contact you approximately 10 weeks later to arrange an appointment for your second vaccination.
Recent NHS letters from mass vaccination sites such as Birmingham are an alternate option to being vaccinated through your GP surgery, not instead of. These have been sent out nationally not by local NHS services such as your GP practice or the Leicester Hospitals.
Burbage Surgery is working hard to ensure that all patients of 80 years of age and over and care home patients are offered a vaccination locally before moving on to other age groups. We will continue to contact patients directly as they become eligible for an appointment.
You do not have to travel to Birmingham if you do not want to; the mass vaccination centres are designed for patients living within 30-45 minutes of a centre at most so we would recommend that you are vaccinated close to home during the pandemic to reduce the risk of catching the virus by using public transport. You should also be aware you have to have both vaccinations at the same venue so your local surgery will not be able to offer patients the second vaccination if you have the first elsewhere.
The demand on our telephones is very high at the present so it would be helpful if patients avoid calling the surgery to ask for a Covid 19 vaccine appointment. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
