Covid Vaccination Questions

Covid Vaccination Information Leaflet

Dear Patients

We are aware that some people are receiving suspicious calls and text messages offering the COVID-19 vaccination.  

 

To protect yourself and your family members from fraud and criminals, remember the following points. 

 

  • The vaccine is only available on the NHS for free to people in priority groups, and the NHS will contact you when it is your turn. Anyone offering a paid-for vaccine is committing a crime.   

  • The NHS will never ask you to press a button on your keypad or send a text to confirm you want the vaccine, and never ask for payment or for your bank details.  

  • At the moment we are also not making house calls to deliver or discuss the vaccine. Anyone offering this now is committing a crime. 

 

If you receive a call you believe to be fraudulent, hang up. If you believe you have been the victim of fraud or identity theft you should report this directly to Action Fraud on 0300 123 2040. Where the victim is vulnerable, and particularly if you are worried that someone has or might come to your house, report it to the Police online or by calling 101.

Cervical screening (a smear test) checks the health of your cervix. The cervix is the opening to your womb from your vagina. It's not a test for cancer, it's a test to help prevent cancer. All women and people with a cervix aged 25 to 64 should be invited by letter.

This year’s expanded flu vaccination programme

Because of the threat of Coronavirus, and to reduce pressure on the NHS, this year’s free flu vaccination will be made available to a wider group of people in a phased approach.

This includes people who are on the shielded patient list and members of their household as well as all school year groups up to year 7.

People aged 50-64 who are not in a clinical risk group will also be vaccinated from November, providing there is enough vaccine.

It is important that those at most risk from flu are vaccinated first, and GPs and pharmacies are working hard to get these groups protected from flu.

Your practice will contact you once they are ready to offer you the vaccine.
