***Please note on the day of your appointment that it is down to the discretion of the vaccinator if they give you your vaccination***
You may not be able to have the vaccine if:
You are pregnant or planning pregnancy
You have a history of Severe Allergy or Anaphylaxis to any part of the vaccine or medicines
You have had a positive COVID swab in the last 28 days
You have taken part in a coronavirus vaccine trial
If any of these apply please speak to your usual GP before attending.
Booking your appointment
Clinics are now held at Merstow Green Medical Practice for our patients. When booking your vaccination please be aware of your appointment time and the door that you are advised to go to as we may have different clinics happening on the same day. If you are unable to attend the surgery for your appointment then please ensure you inform the surgery within enough time.
Please note we have recently been sending out text messages and contacting patients that are eligible for their vaccination. Please ensure you have given your GP surgery your correct up-to-date contact information. This will ensure an easier booking process for yourself and your Surgery. If you choose to book your own appointment at any of the hubs situated in the Worcestershire area , please be aware you need to attend your second vaccination at this site also. You cannot swap and change your appointments around between hubs.
Attending your appointment
IF YOU ARE ACUTELY UNWELL OR FEVERISH, OR ARE ISOLATING DUE TO A POSITIVE COVID SWAB OR BECAUSE OF A CONTACT – PLEASE DO NOT ATTEND YOUR APPOINTMENT
For all vaccination sites:
Arrive 2 minutes before your appointment time. Please do not enter early. This will help with the flow of patients and social distancing inside and outside our buildings
Wear a face mask and gel your hands
Wear clothing which is easy to remove and expose the top of your arm
- Wear clothing that is suitable to the weather as you may need to queue outside the surgery
Whichever vaccine you have, you cannot drive for 15 minutes following your vaccination
