COVID-19 Vaccinations Updates
You may be one of the additional 1.7million people who have been added to the Clinically Extremely Vulnerable (CEV) list. Emails and letters are currently being sent out centrally by the Government to patients .
It's great that the research is helping to identify people who are at higher risk of complications of Covid-19, as this will help keep everyone safer.
We were informed about this tool but we don't yet have this information on our clinical system. This means that if you have received an email or letter and you're not sure why you've been added to the CEV list, we won't yet be able to tell you why.
We have been told that the information will come out to us, hopefully soon. We will update this page when we have the information, and when we do.
People who are eligible and who live near vaccination services will receive letters from the NHS Covid-19 Vaccination Booking Service, telling them how they can book their appointment.
You may receive a letter from the national NHS Covid-19 Vaccination Booking Service inviting you to book an appointment at a regional Vaccination Centre or other location. If you receive the letter from the national service and can travel to the 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 Chesham Town Hall, which is the local vaccination hub for patients in this area.
We are well underway vaccinating our patients 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.
Amersham Health Centre (via Chesham Town Hall) COVID-19 Vaccinations
We have begun administering COVID-19 vaccinations to our patients at Chesham Town Hall.
Each practice will contact their most vulnerable patients, and directly book them an appointment. Please be reassured ALL eligible patients, who wish to receive a COVID-19 vaccination will receive one in due course.
As soon as further supplies become available, you will be duly contacted. NHS England has requested that patients do not contact practices to book the vaccination and we would ask you to adhere to this request in order to keep phone lines available for patients needing our care.
We recognise you may feel disappointed if you are not contacted for this vaccination. However, we do appreciate your patience and understanding in working together to deliver this important vaccination programme.
