COVID-19 VACCINE- LATEST INFORMATION

Although there is not an approved vaccine for Covid-19 yet, a lot of work is taking place to make sure the NHS is ready to offer these to people as soon as a vaccine passes all the strict safety checks and is approved. 

 

When will a vaccine be available?

At the moment, we do not have any information about when a vaccine will be ready. The NHS will not offer Covid-19 vaccinations until it is safe to do so and a vaccine is proved to be both safe and effective.

 

Where can I get a vaccine?

Vaccines will be offered from a number of different locations to make sure everyone who needs a vaccine is able to get one. These locations are still being decided and we will share these details with patients as soon as we know.

 

Who will get a vaccine?

The vaccine will be offered to those most at risk from COVID19 first, starting with people living in care homes and those over 80 years old. This is based on the guidance from the Joint Committee for Vaccinations and Immunisations which is available here. Currently, it advises that it should then be offered to people with high or medium risk clinical conditions and those aged between 50 and 80. This will be done in a phased approach and full details of when and where will be shared once a vaccine is confirmed.

 

Further information

We will share further information with you as it becomes available. In the meantime, please could we kindly ask you not to contact the practice for information about the vaccine as it may stop someone who needs urgent medical help getting through to us.


 REPEAT PRESCRIPTIONS

You can re-order your prescription online (follow the link above), or you may post your prescription request in the red post box outside.

Would you like to take part in the Calderdale Test & Trace Survey?

The Test & Trace service aims to speak to people who have tested positive for COVID-19 and identify who they have come into contact with, so that they can isolate and stop the spread of Coronavirus.

In Calderdale, the national Test & Trace service is supported by a local service to help us reach as many people as possible. They want to find out what you know about the Test & Trace service and how you feel about it.

The results from the survey will help them improve the service so that it is effective and works for the people of Calderdale.   All responses will be completely anonymous so please answer each question honestly.   Thank you taking the time to complete the survey.  https://wh.snapsurveys.com/s.asp?k=159654605007


Get Vitamin D Supplements

Use the government service to get free daily vitamin D supplements if you're at high risk (clinically extremely vulnerable) from coronavirus (COVID-19).

During autumn and winter, everyone is advised to take vitamin D to keep their bones and muscles healthy and to support their general health.

This is particularly important if you've been indoors over the spring and summer as you may not have been getting enough vitamin D from sunlight.
