Coronavirus (Covid-19) vaccination in Lincolnshire

NHS wil get in touch when its your turn

 

We are making excellent progress with the covid vaccination programme across Lincolnshire.  Following the successful completion of vaccinations for people aged 70 and over (the first four cohorts), we are now vaccinating people in cohorts five and six.

You are now eligible for the coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccination if:

  • you are aged 60 or over
  • you have previously received a letter saying you are at high risk from coronavirus (clinically extremely vulnerable)
  • you are an eligible frontline health worker
  • you are an eligible frontline social care worker
  • you are eligible for Carer’s Allowance – find out more about Carer’s Allowance on GOV.UK
  • you are on the GP Learning Disability Register

You also need to be registered with a GP surgery in England to use this service. You can register with a GP if you do not have one.

Find out more about who is eligible to have a coronavirus vaccination.

You should not attend a vaccine appointment if you are experiencing coronavirus symptoms, self-isolating or waiting for a COVID-19 test.

If you are not eligible yet, please wait to be contacted. The NHS will let you know when it’s your turn to have the vaccine.

You have the choice to either:

  • Have your vaccination at a Local Vaccination Site via your local GP services, who will contact you directly if they haven’t already done so, or;
  • Book an appointment at a Large Vaccination Centre, either via online Book a coronavirus vaccination – NHS (www.nhs.uk) or the national telephone number 119.

If you receive the letter but have already booked your vaccination, you do not need to do anything else – you can ignore the letter and attend for your vaccination as per your appointment.

Please do not contact your GP practice unless they have specifically asked you to (by writing, texting or emailing you).  Your practice will contact you when it is your turn to be vaccinated, and is busy dealing with people who require care for clinical issues.

You should only attend for vaccination if you have an appointment booked – you will not be vaccinated without an appointment.  In addition, if you are experiencing covid symptoms of any kind, or self-isolating, please do not attend for vaccination.  You will be rebooked when it is safe for you to attend.

We are committed to vaccinating everyone as quickly as possible.  We know that there has been some reporting nationally about practices focusing on people in cohort six, however, we would like to reassure people in Lincolnshire that everyone in cohorts five and six will receive their vaccination.

If you have been identified as one of the additional 1.7 million people required to shield until the end of March, the NHS will contact you to arrange your vaccination if you have not already had your first dose.

There have been some patients who have requested their second vaccination date is moved, however, your date is linked to when you had your first vaccination, so we would ask you to keep the date you have been given.  If you have not been given a date, please be assured the NHS will be in touch with you to arrange this.
