National Covid Vaccination Programme

National Covid Vaccination Programme

Alrewas surgery is participating in the national Covid Vaccination programme. 

Covid vaccination appointments are by invitation ONLY and patients will get their invitation either via NHS letter sent directly to you or via contact from the surgery (text message with link or a call from a member of the surgery team). 

You can use either method.  If you get a letter or a text, please do not wait and act on it as soon as possible. This is because vaccines deliveries are allocated nationally and timescales for deliveries vary. All vaccinations have to be given to patients following the strict guidance from the government. The priority order can be viewed at https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/covid-19-vaccination-care-home-and-healthcare-settings-posters/covid-19-vaccination-first-phase-priority-groups

The surgery link is for bookings at Pirelli Stadium or Uttoxeter Racecourse.  We are not able to book appointments at Whitemoor Lakes or any of the other centres.

If you are listed as housebound on our records, the surgery will contact you to book your vaccination at your home. If we have given you your first vaccination, we will invite you to your second within 12 weeks.  If you have had your first vaccination elsewhere, you should have your second at the same location unless there are extenuating circumstances (e.g. you have moved a significant distance or have become housebound during the 12 weeks)

Patients can also book online via the NHS Covid vaccination site if they are eligible. Book here.

Please do not call to ask surgery staff to book you for a Covid appointment nor ask when you are likely to be invited.  We will contact you when it is your turn. Many Thanks.
