Covid vaccination information letter
- Now that more doses of Covid-19 vaccines are available, the NHS is able to open more vaccination services, including the first large regional vaccination centres.
- People who are eligible and who live near these new vaccination services will receive letters from the NHS Covid-19 Vaccination Booking Service, telling them how they can book their appointment.
- The NHS is rolling out additional services quickly, but it remains important that the public don’t try to book or go to these services before they receive their booking letter.
- When you do book an appointment, please make sure you attend.
- You may receive a letter from the national NHS Covid-19 Vaccination Booking Service inviting you to book an appointment at one of the regional vaccination centre and currently the closest of which is at Etihad Tennis Club in Manchester (North West).
- If you receive the letter from the national service and can travel to the regional vaccination centre safely, we recommend that you book using the details the letter provides.
- If you are unable or don’t want to go to a vaccination centre, you can choose to wait and get your vaccination at Heald Green Village Hall which is the local vaccination hub for patients in this area.
- We have started vaccinating patients over the age of 80 years of age and are inviting people in according to the criteria and prioritisation set by the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI), and will contact you when it’s your turn.
- Like the rest of the NHS we are working to offer vaccines to everyone in the top priority groups by the middle of February.
- Please do not contact us if you haven’t received an invite yet. We will contact you when it is the right time for you to book your appointment.
