COVID Vaccination Update

We are unable to offer you a certification of Covid vaccination, a Covid passport or a letter to prove you have been vaccinated against Covid-19. You can however find details of all your vaccinations on the NHS App. Proof of vaccination documents have not yet been developed and as such cannot be provided by your GP. As soon as we have further information we will share it with you.

In light of the recent announcement that under 30’s will not be receiving the Oxford Astra Zeneca (AZ) vaccine please be aware that if you are over 30 the UK vaccination programme is unable to deliver a choice of vaccine for your first vaccine.

If you have had a first AZ vaccine without any serious side effects such as blood clotting then you should continue to have your second AZ vaccine irrespective of your age.

If you are one of the very small percentage of patients that have had very serious side effects from your first AZ vaccine then please get in touch so the risks and benefits for your second vaccine can be discussed with you. Please contact us.

Anyone under 30 will receive alternative first vaccines but the wait may be longer due to the supply issues of the Pfizer vaccine and Moderna vaccine. The majority of under 30’s are in cohort 12 which have not yet been invited for vaccine. There may be some that fall into lower cohorts that are eligible now.
