Covid-19 Vaccination

Covid-19 Vaccination

We are now offering our patients the Covid-19 vaccination at Danbury Medical Centre.

We are following the Public Health England guidance and offering the vaccine to patients in cohorts. 

We are calling patients to book these appointments.

Please do not call or email the surgery to book. 

The vaccine is in two parts, you will be given both appointment details when you are called. 

 

If it is recorded on the patients record we can contact family or carers as we have the patients consent to do so.

If you need to add patient consent to your record please complete a 'Patient Consent to share information Form' which can be found on the 'Register Now' page or collected from reception. This can then be posted, emailed or handed in to the surgery.

 

Please be patient with us during this busy time.

 

Basildon Hospital

Some patients have already received letters and texts to book in for both their vaccines at Basildon Hospital. 

Please note the surgery has no knowledge of the information regarding Basildon Hospital or regarding the booking system.

Flu Vaccination

The flu vaccine does not protect you from Covid-19. You can have both vaccines but they will need to be at least a week apart.  

Housebound Patients

Housebound patients will be offered the vaccine when the Oxford vaccine is released due to the current Pfizer vaccine not being able to be taken out of the surgery.

Housebound patients will be contacted at a later date.

Allergies

Following the current guidance if you have had an immediate and severe allergic reaction to any vaccine, medicine or food (anaphylaxis) unfortunately the current vaccine may not be safe for you. 

We will continue to review safety information of the current and any future vaccines and you may be contacted again if a suitable and safe vaccine is available.

When we call you to book the vaccine you can ask any questions about allergies you have or on the day a clinician is available to answer your questions.

Please do not telephone or email the surgery asking advice about your allergies for your future vaccine as safety information may change.
