Astro Zeneca vaccine: 1st dose

1st dose - We are booking three groups for their Covid vaccine

1. Everyone age 50 or over  

2. People whose condition makes them Clinically Extremely Vulnerable (formerly known as shielding), according to our records  

3. "Cohort 6" which is people age 18*-64 with certain underlying health conditions which make them Clinically Vulnerable –  this is the cohort which the Joint Committee on Vaccinations & Immunisations have called cohort 6 see further information below. 

This applies only to patients registered at practices within Chapeltown Primary care Network (Allerton and Westfield Medical Centres, Chapeltown Family Surgery, St Martins Practice and Westfield Medical Practice). If you are registered elsewhere then please look at the website of your own GP practice for information about who they are boking.

If you have a mobile number on our record, then we have sent you a texted with a link to book. If you have received this message, then please to use it to book: it is straightforward, and no login is required. If you received your text a few weeks ago then the link will still work to book into the future dates.

If you are in the groups mentioned above, and do not have a mobile number on your record or the link does not work then please contact us to book on 0113 22 11 888.

If you do NOT fall into the  groups mentioned, then we will contact you when we are able to book your and please check our website for more information about when you will be called. And we would ask for your support to pass this message to any friends or family who fall into the groups mentioned. A higher vaccine uptake keeps our community safer for everyone.

 

 

What is Cohort 6 (Clinically Vulnerable)?

If you fall into this group, then we have contacted you.  The criteria are varied and open to some interpretation and we apologise if you have not received the invitation you expect or if you have been called and you are unsure why. Please see the further information below. 

The Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) states that the Clinically Vulnerable (Cohort 6) includes ‘all individuals aged 16 years to 65 years with underlying health conditions which put them at higher risk of serious disease and mortality’. 
This includes: 

  • Chronic respiratory disease. In the case of asthma this means you need to be taking regular oral steroids (Prednisolone) 
  • Chronic heart disease and vascular disease 
  • Chronic kidney disease 
  • Chronic liver disease 
  • Chronic neurological disease, including severe or profound learning disability 
  • Diabetes mellitus 
  • Immunosuppression 
  • Asplenia or dysfunction of the spleen 
  • Morbid obesity (a BMI of over 40) 
  • Severe mental illness. 

Cohort 6 also includes: 

  • Those who are eligible for a carer’s allowance, or those who are the main carer of an elderly or disabled person whose welfare may be at risk if the carer falls ill. If this applies to you we will aim to invite you too, but only if we know about your carer status already. The local authority will also invite you, if they know you to be a carer, to attend a Mass Vaccination Centre such as Sheffield Arena, Don Valley. 

Cohort 6, people age 16 and 17 

See "Pfizer vaccine: 1st dose" on this page

Pfizer vaccine: 2nd dose

 

The Pfizer vaccine requires two doses, up to 11 weeks apart.

People who attended at Woodhouse for their first dose in January 2021: these people have now been contacted for their 2nd dose. If you missed the call out and are still waiting for your 2nd dose, then please contact us.

Pfizer vaccine: 1st dose

We are not routinely offering the Pfizer vacccine. We are sorry but we have no choice over what vaccine we get sent, and so we are not able to offer a choice to our patients.

There is one exception: if you are age 16 or 17 and according to our records are clinically vulnerable then you are entitled to a covid vaccine, and should have the Pfizer (as Astro Zenea is not licenced for your age group). If you would like to have your vaccine then pleae contact us and we will make special arrangements.

Thank you for your support

Since Jan 2021 our staff have been redeployed to support the vaccine effort from the clinical, support and management teams. This is leaving us shorter staffed than usual on the front line and so some things may take longer than usual, and longer than we would like. Thank you for your understanding.

We have received so much positive and grateful feedback from patients and the community about what we are doing. Thank-you, it is very heartening for our staff.

Covid vaccine national booking system letters

Some people are now receiving letters from the NHS National Booking System to make an appointment at a large-scale vaccine centre or community pharmacy.

Please do not contact us about appointments or arrangements at the large-scale centres or community pharmacies as we do not have any information. Please call the number on the letter or see the national booking system website.
