We are aware that there is a lot of misinformation in the media at the moment surrounding COVID-19 vaccinations and potential scams. Unfortunately, there are people out there who try to take advantage of the current situation and may attempt to wrongly obtain personal information or even money from you. But when we do contact you to book your COVID-19 Vaccination, it's important that you feel confident that this invitation has come from the practice. Here are some important things to keep in mind:
We are currently inviting patients to have their vaccination via telephone calls and text messages
This is because our clinics are being arranged at short notice and we don't have the necessary time to send out letters. The text messages we are sending to patients include a link which will ask you to confirm your date of birth and allow you to book your appointment on you phone. If you are concerned about any text messages with links, below is an example of what will be included in the text message from us:
You have been invited to book your COVID-19 vaccinations.
Please note when you click the link below, the only information it will ask for is your date of birth.
If you have had a letter from NHS England and have already booked an appointment at a vaccination centre, please follow the instructions in the link to let us know you'll be having your vaccination elsewhere.
You may also receive an invitation by letter
NHS England are also sending out letters to eligible patients, inviting them to have their vaccination at one of the larger vaccination centres. If you are able to travel to one of these locations, you can contact the number on the letter and book this. If not, you can still wait to be contacted by us.
