Covid Vaccine update

Our Covid vaccinations have begun. 

  • The vaccine will be offered in a strict order of priority as determined by NHS England.  Currently this is patients aged 75 and over as well as frontline health and social care workers.
  • We will be contacting you when you are eligible.  But if you are in the above cohorts and have not heard from us please email practicemanager.nbs@nhs.net or call reception.
  • Only patients with appointments should attend. Anyone attending without an appointment will unfortunately be turned away.
  • Vaccinations will take place at Cherwell School North Site Marston Ferry Rd, Oxford OX2 7EE.
  • These will be joint clinics with patients and staff from 19 Beaumont Street Surgery, Summertown Health Centre, and Banbury Road Medical Centre.
  • Current guidance is that a second dose is necessary 12 weeks after the initial dose – we will contact you at that time to book the follow up vaccination.
  • Please read this information about the vaccine in advance of your appointment https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/covid-19-vaccination-guide-for-older-adults/covid-19-vaccination-guide-for-older-adults
  • Please be aware that you may have to queue outside for a short time, and that you will have to wait for a 15minute observation period after your vaccination.
  • Please wear clothes that make it easy for you to get your upper arm out for the vaccine and please wear a mask.
  • Please cancel your appointment if you have any coronavirus symptoms (cough, fever or loss of sense of taste or smell) or have had a positive covid test in the last 4 weeks.
  • There is a reasonable amount of parking at the school site, but if possible, please come on foot.

If you are a frontline health or social care worker as outlined in The Green Book chapter 14a on Covid vaccine (click here) then please email practice.manager@nhs.net to arrange an appointment. The relevant guidance is on page 11.

When you are invited for a vaccine appointment please respond as promptly as possible.
