We are pleased to be offering a drop in COVID booster clinic THIS WEDNESDAY!! There is no need to book!
It will run from 9am to 5pm.
Primarily it will be aimed at those who require their booster jabs. Please ensure the following:
1) You are over 18 years old
2) You are 12 weeks following your second vaccination
3) You are 4 weeks clear of a COVID infection.
We have limited supplies and will try and vaccinate everyone who shows up.
If this goes well, we will be offering another session (so don't panic!). If we run out, we will be turning people away.
Good luck, stay safe and Merry Christmas!
COVID BOOSTERS - 12 Dec 21 update
With the recent Government announcement about COVID 19 booster to over 18s and the change to three months from six. Patients are politely reminded NOT to ring the practice to book in for the COVID vaccine.
Your medical records will be updated automatically with the vaccine information.
We have limited numbers of COVID vaccine allocated to the practice and we are still working through this in priority order. For these patients, we will contact you. It will take time with us to order in a larger quantity to meet this new guidance.
If you already have an appointment DO NOT MISS IT. The vials are in 'batches' and so if you miss it, we cannot re-use the vaccine.
Thank you and please use the Government Website where possible.
As from 19th July face masks will not be mandated.
At Eaglescliffe Medical Practice we will continue to wear PPE including masks and ask that everyone attending the practice continues to wear a mask or face covering. By doing so we are protecting you, ourselves and patients who are clinically vulnerable or unable to be vaccinated.
IF you choose not to wear a mask, please make this known when you have been given a face to face appointment as we may have to make alternative arrangements in order to protect patients and staff. This may be attending when the practice is empty or waiting outside for administrative information.
Our practice figures are showing a dramatic increase in positive COVID cases, especially in the younger age groups with some been double vaccinated. Please remember we also have patients in vulnerable and older age groups with medical needs coming into the practice.
Thank you for your ongoing support - by taking these precautions we are able to remain open to provide healthcare to our patients without risk of infection.
If you have any of the following symtoms:
- a high temperature or
- a new continuous cough
- a loss or change to you sense of smell or taste
