Kenilworth & Warwick PCN Covid-19 Vaccination Programme
Kenilworth & Warwick PCN COVID-19 Vaccination Programme
Our Practice is part of the Kenilworth and Warwick Primary Care Network, which also includes Abbey Medical Centre, The Castle Medical Centre, Avonside Health Centre and Chase Meadow Health Centre. Together we have been coordinating the Covid-19 Vaccination programme for patients within our network.
Two vaccinations are given, and therefore two appointments will be booked approximately 12 weeks apart for the first and second dose. It is important that both appointments are attended at the same vaccination centre.
It is advised that you do not drive for 15 minutes after receiving your vaccination. Please bear this in mind when booking your appointment and allow plenty of time.
Who will receive the Covid-19 Vaccination?
We are inviting patients based on the national guidance (determined by the Joint Committee for Vaccinations & Immunisations). Please do not book your Covid-19 Vaccination until you have received your invitation.
I have received my invitation to book, what do I do now?
Call 119 or visit www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/coronavirus-vaccination/book-coronavirus-vaccination to book your appointment date and time slot. When you book, you will be asked for information including; your name, date of birth and your NHS number (you can still book without your NHS number).
Where is the vaccination site?
We will be running a joint vaccination clinic at The Ramada Hotel, Chesford Bridge, CV8 2LN. You can only attend the site if you have a booked appointment or are driving someone to their appointment. If you arrive at the site without an appointment you will not be seen.
Please speak to a marshal when you arrive who will direct you to the appropriate entrance.
If you choose to, eligible groups can also book at one of the mass vaccination sites.
I don’t have access to transport
If you require transport it may be possible to book this through the community transport service by calling 01789 262889 - only arrange transport if you have booked your appointments. Vaccinations will not be given to anyone arriving at the site without an appointment.
I am housebound, how do I get vaccinated?
If you are a care home resident or we already provide you with home-visits, you will be contacted by Coventry & Warwickshire Partnership Trust to arrange your vaccinations. If you are housebound please let us know so that Coventry & Warwickshire Partnership Trust can contact you.
Some useful communication information:
- We send out texts to mobile phone numbers as one method of communication to our patients. We are aware that not all have mobile phone numbers however if you do, it is useful to have this added to your file. You can do so at www.priorymed.nhs.uk/changedetails. We will also continue to phone patients landlines as well as using other forms of communication to ensure we reach the masses during these unprecedented times.
- A new email address has been set up by our local Clinical Commissioning Group for questions from the public about the vaccine programme firstname.lastname@example.org
- Updated information is also available on the CCG website via www.southwarwickshireccg.nhs.uk/Your-Health/COVID-19-Vaccination
We are aware that these are challenging times for all and we hope that people find the above useful. We ask you to please remain patient, we are rolling out this programme to a very large number of people and we have our patients best interests at heart.
