  • Covid Vaccination Updates | northenden-gp

    COVID-19 Vaccination Updates Spring booster programme ​ Who is being offered a spring booster? COVID-19 is more serious in older people and those with a weakened immune system. Protection from the vaccine may be lower and may decline more quickly in these people. For this reason people aged 75 years and over, those in care homes and those aged 12 years and over with a weakened immune system are being offered the spring booster. ​ Timing of the spring booster You should be offered an appointment around 6 months (and not before 3 months) since your last dose of vaccine. ​ Which vaccine will you be offered? You will be given a booster dose of either Pfzer or Moderna vaccine*. Both vaccines boost well and have already been given to millions of people in the UK. ​ When will you be able to book a spring booster? Appointments will be available from the National Booking Service shortly. Around that time we will also send invitations out for eligible patients to attend the Wythenshawe Vaccination Centres. ​ Vaccination of 5-11 year olds The JCVI have shared guidance around vaccination of children and young people . It outlines that 5-11 year olds in a clinical risk group (defined in the green book) or who are a household contact of someone who is immunosuppressed can get two doses of the Pfizer (Comirnaty®) vaccine with an interval of 8 weeks. The operational guidance is not yet live but we understand you might have interest from patients as it has been in the media so have provided the following wording you may wish to add to your website: The NHS are planning to offer the vaccine to 5-11 year olds who are in a clinical risk group or who are a household contact of someone who is immunosuppressed from January. The NHS will be in touch with you if your 5-11 year old is eligible for their Covid-19 vaccine. To make sure you’re contacted when it’s time, please let the reception team know if your child is a household contact of someone who is immunosuppressed so we can make sure this detail is on their health care record. ​ Changes to the vaccination programme from Monday 13 December 2021 ​ From today (Monday 13 December), booster jabs are being offered to over 18's who had their second dose at least 3 months ago. The Covid booster helps give longer-term protection against serious illness from Covid-19. How to get yours From Wednesday 15 December, the national booking system will be open to all over 18’s. You can book from 2 months after your second vaccination to make sure you can get vaccinated at the 3 month mark. Booking a slot is the best way to make sure you get your jab - visit www.nhs.uk/covidvaccine or call 119 . Manchester residents can also book an appointment by calling the Gateway on 0161 947 0770 or 0800 092 402 . Lines are open Monday to Friday, 8am - 6pm. Ask for a translator if you need one. The Gateway can also book a free taxi to and from vaccination appointments for those who need one. Booking systems are very busy, but more appointments are being added all the time so please keep trying. You can also go along to any of our walk in clinics. Details can be found on the Manchester City Council website . You don’t need an appointment to attend our walk in clinics but there may be a queue so wrap up warm and take a brolly. Remember, it’s never too late to get vaccinated. You can still book your first or second Covid vaccination if you haven’t already. Please get vaccinated and keep yourself and others safe.
