COVID BOOSTER AND FLU CAMPAIGN – UPDATE

Posted on November 22nd, 2021

COVID BOOSTERS

3W Health is coming to the end of its involvement in the COVID Booster campaign. The last clinic will be held at Winslow Health Centre on the morning of Saturday 4th December.

Invites have been sent to all eligible patients who had their 2nd dose 6 months ago and we still have appointments available in clinics on 24th and 27th November and 1st and 4th December. If you do not wish to have the COVID Booster, please advise the surgery so that your record can be updated, which will stop the reminders being sent to you by the NHS.

We appreciate that there will still be a number of patients requiring their booster vaccines and that some of you may be disappointed that you are unable to have this with us at Winslow Health Centre or Whitchurch Surgery.  We apologise for this, but hope you can appreciate that we are having to balance the impact these clinics have on the availability of our nursing, doctor and administration staff to be able to fulfil the other medical needs of our patients.

COVID vaccine appointments will continue to be available at alternative sites, however, and you will need to access these via the online booking service going forward: Book or manage your coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccination – NHS (www.nhs.uk) or if you are unable to access online by calling 119.

For patients with missing vaccine records (e.g. you have had 2 doses but your record only shows 1 and therefore you are not showing as eligible for your booster vaccine) please contact the NHS Vaccine Resolution Service via 119 and they will be able to assist you.  Unfortunately, the surgery is not able to help with these queries.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank all the volunteers (many of whom are patients too!) who have staffed our car parks and reception area and provided support to our clinical teams.

FLU VACCINES

We have tried where possible to offer a flu vaccine alongside the COVID boosters.  However this has not always been possible and we are sorry for those we have had to turn away – there continues to be a national issue with the availability and timeliness of flu vaccine deliveries which is largely out of our control.  We continue to work with our suppliers to try to secure further deliveries and when confirmed will offer further flu clinics.

Our next flu clinic with appointments available, is for patients aged between 50 and 64 or under 50 if in an at risk category and is on the afternoon of Saturday 4th December at Winslow Health Centre – please contact your usual GP reception to book.  If you would prefer, you can book a flu vaccine via a local pharmacy.  Again if you do not wish to have the flu vaccine please let your surgery know so your record can be updated.
