COVID-19 Vaccination Clinics
Please see below for details of eligibility, how we will book your appointment, and details of what to expect when you arrive for your appointment.
The coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccine is safe and effective. It gives you the best protection against coronavirus.
Vaccines will be given in the following order of priority. We are now vaccinating patients in cohorts 1-8. You can either book your appointment at one of our clinics by calling reception, or you can book into a mass vaccination centre by following this link: Book a coronavirus vaccination - NHS (www.nhs.uk)
- Cohort 1: Care home residents and their carers
- Cohort 2: All those 80 years of age and over and frontline health and social care workers. Further details on frontline health and social care workers can be found here.
- Cohort 3: All those 75 years of age and over
- Cohort 4: All those 70 years of age and over and clinically extremely vulnerable individuals
- Cohort 5: All those 65 years of age and over
- Cohort 6: All individuals aged 16 years to 64 years with underlying health conditions - See further details about this cohort here
- Cohort 7: All those 60 years of age and over
- Cohort 8: All those 55 years of age and over
- Cohort 9: All those 50 years of age and over
In line with central guidance, we are concentrating on cohort 6 in practice and will be inviting patients in this group for their vaccine over the coming weeks. Please note that we have nearly 2,000 patients in this cohort and are currently only receiving 180 vaccines per week so we will be prioritising within this group.
Please wait to be contacted: We will let you know when it's your turn to have the vaccine. It's important you don't contact us before then.
How we will book your appointment
We will contact you by text (if you have a mobile phone number on your record) or by phone as soon as we have appointments available.
We will need to book your appointment at short notice and may not be able to give any flexibility with timings, so please try to set up plans for transport to the vaccination site in advance.
Alternatively, you may receive a letter inviting you to a mass vaccination site. If you receive one of these letters you will have the choice of either booking your vaccination at the mass vaccination site (following the instructions in the letter) or to wait for us to contact you to book you in for your vaccination at the practice.
Whichever option you choose, it is important to be aware that you will need to have your second dose at the same place where you had your first dose and this cannot be changed.
Our next clinic will be held on Saturday 17th April and patients will be contacted to attend this clinic. Please note we will contact you when your second vaccination is due. These clinics will run from our main site at Osler Road, Headington, Oxford, OX3 9BP.
On the day arrangements
To ensure the safety of our patients and staff we will require you to follow the following instructions:
