COVID-19 Vaccination

Posted by: Monifa - Posted on:

The NHS is now offering vaccinations to people in Kirklees who are most at risk from Covid-19.

Our practice is busy contacting eligible patients as supplies are made available. It is likely take several weeks before we contact everyone, so please be patient.

Vaccinations are currently being offered to people in care homes and those aged 80 or over, in line with national priority groups identified by the Joint Committee of Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI). 

When it is your turn, you will receive an invitation via the phone or through a letter either from your GP or the national booking system. When you are invited for a vaccine, please act straight away.  
 
We know people are eager to get protected but do not to contact the practice for information about the vaccine or to ask for an appointment. You will not be able to get a vaccination until you receive an invitation.
We are currently receiving a large number of enquiries about the COVID-19 vaccination. Before you contact the practice, please check the NHS website  or look at these frequently asked questions where you may find the answer to your question. COVID-19 infection rates remain high and local health services are incredibly busy. The best thing we can all do to protect ourselves our families and our community is to remember – Hands, Face, Space.

Vaccination Fraud

Vaccinations are free of charge and only available through the NHS. Anyone who offers a vaccination privately or for a fee is likely to be committing a crime and should be reported to the police online or by calling 112. 

The NHS will never ask you to press a button on your keypad or send a text asking you to confirm you want the vaccine.
