We are finally being provided with vaccines and are vaccinating patients with the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine commencing Friday 15th January 2021. As you will be aware the schedule of vaccinations has been set out by the Government and we will firstly be offering the vaccination to our patient’s aged 80 and over and these patients who have indicated that they wish to have the vaccine have now been invited.
Eligible patients will be contacted by us, please be patient and wait until you are contacted, DO NOT RING US.
Due to the strict requirements in relation to the transport and storage of the vaccines we will not be able to administer these at Stokenchurch Medical Centre. We will be working with our Primary Care Network partners vaccinating our patients at a mass vaccination centre located at the Town Hall in Queen Victoria Road, High Wycombe.
Unfortunately we/the NHS cannot provide transport and therefore if you don’t drive you should make your own transport arrangements, either by friends, family or public transport/taxi. Stokenchurch Community Transport are able to offer transport for those with limited mobility, including wheelchair-bound, who will otherwise find it extremely difficult to get to the vaccination centre. For further information, please call 07549 838 773.
There is parking available for those who intend to drive, at the Swan Car Park and signage and volunteers will be present to indicate the route to the vaccination centre. Please ensure you wear warm clothing as it is a short walk from the car park. For disabled patients or those who struggle to walk there is a drop off zone and disabled access via the archway in Queen Victoria Road, next to the Town Hall.
When you attend your appointment for your vaccination you will be given an appointment date and time for your second vaccination. Due to the immense scale of this vaccination programme it is extremely important that you attend BOTH appointments that you are given as you will not be re-booked and will miss this opportunity.
Patients who suffer from anaphylaxys or have had adverse reactions in the past are not eligible for the current vaccine and will be contacted at a later stage as and when other vaccines become available.
Please be mindful that due to the extra demands of the Covid-19 vaccination programme and winter pressures on our service we, both the admin team & the GP’s, do not have the time to deal with any queries relating to Covid-19 Vaccinations. For more information regarding the vaccination please visit the NHS.UK website and look at the handy patient information leaflet published by Public Health England Covid-19 Vaccine leaflet
PLEASE DO NOT CALL THE SURGERY WITH QUESTIONS RELATING TO WHEN YOUR VACCINATION WILL BE TAKING PLACE AS WE WILL CONTACT YOU AT THE APPROPRIATE TIME.
Our well-established practice occupies a new building in Oxford Road and has excellent parking facilities.
