The COVID-19 Vaccination Programme
The COVID-19 Vaccination Programme is well underway across Bury. Our Practice is working in collaboration with other Bury Practices, Bury CCG and local authorities to deliver the vaccine to our patients in the coming weeks and months.
There are now four GP-led sites operational throughout the week and delivering the vaccine to patients across Bury; these are in Prestwich, Radcliffe, Bury Town Centre and Ramsbottom. Patients have the choice of choosing the site most appropriate for them, and there are appointments available on most days, depending on demand. Additionally, a Mass Vaccination Centre has now opened at the Etihad Tennis Centre; patients who have received a letter inviting them to book an appointment have the option to attend this site if it is more convenient for them.
If you wish to receive your vaccination at one of the local GP-led sites please do not contact the Practice – the Practice will contact you when your patient cohort becomes eligible to receive the vaccine at one of these sites.
We are following the JCVI guidance, which can be found here
Currently we are working through Cohort 10 (40-49 year olds) as per the JCVI guidance above. Cohorts 11 and 12 will follow.
Covid 19 – Travel Passport Evidence
You will appreciate that GP practices are currently extremely busy so we do not have the capacity to provide evidence of your vaccinations or test results which are recorded on our system.
It is recommended that patient use the NHS app or other apps available, through which you can view your vaccination records and this can be used as evidence of your receiving the covid 19 vaccine.
To access the NHS app, you will need to have access to the online services at www.patient-services.co.uk and follow the instructions to register.
Thank you. Mile Lane Surgery
