21.12.2020 Please do not contact your GP for a COVID-19 vaccine

The first phase of the NHS Covid-19 vaccination programme has started. When it is the right time you will receive an invitation to come forward. For most people this will be a letter, either from your GP or the national NHS. This letter will include all the information you will need to book appointments, including your NHS number. Please do not contact the NHS to get an appointment until you get this letter. Information on the vaccine is available on here: https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/coronavirus-vaccination/coronavirus-vaccine/

The covid vaccination programme will shortly be underway in Redbridge. As the vaccination programme gets underway we will invite patients who are eligible to have the vaccine to book their appointments.  

For now we ask our residents to help us deliver this effectively to those who need it most by doing the following:

 

  • wait to be invited for your vaccine – you will be contacted when it’s the right time to come forward so please don’t seek a vaccine before then;
  • act on your invite and make sure you attend your appointments when you arrange them;
  • and of course, stay safe by following all the social distancing and hand hygiene guidance, which will still save lives.
