COVID Vaccinations For Groups 10-12

Deddington Health Centre is only offering COVID-19 vaccinations to those patients in priority groups 1-9 who have not yet had their first dose or are awaiting a second dose. Please do not contact us about vaccinations unless you are in one of these groups. You can check your eligibility here.

If you are in the priority groups 10 – 12 (people aged 49 down to 18) you will need to book your appointment via the national NHS booking service when your age group becomes eligible. This will allow you to find a suitable date and time at another site which will still include some availability at Chipping Norton Health Centre along with availability at the Kassam Stadium vaccination centre (or other large centre in a neighbouring county) and a participating community pharmacy. The information on the national NHS booking service will also tell you what age group are currently able to book.

Regarding Certificates or Evidence about your COVID Vaccination Status

Please be aware that we are unable to issue this certificate at the practice.

Please see www.gov.uk – Demonstrating your COVID-19 vaccination status when travelling abroad for further information.

Proof of your vaccination status will be available in the NHS app (which is also valuable for accessing your health record and ordering repeat prescriptions) from 17th May 2021,  and in some of the other apps that provide you with Patient online services.

If you already have access/ login details for patient online services, for example “Patient Access”, you may use this.

The NHSapp can be downloaded from:

www.apps.apple.com – NHS App for iPhone/iOS
www.play.google.com – NHS App for Android.

If you have not used it before, there is a self-registration process within the app to create an “NHS login” as per www.nhs.uk – NHS login.

Alternatively, you can call the NHS helpline on 119 (from 17 May) and ask for a letter to be posted to you. This must be at least 5 days after you’ve completed your course of the vaccine. The letter may to take another 5 days to reach you, or more if postal services are affected. Please take account of this when making your plans.
