What to do if you have symptoms of COVID-19 or feel unwell with COVID-19?
The government has removed all remaining domestic restrictions in England. There are still steps you can take to reduce the risk of catching and spreading COVID-19:
- Get vaccinated
- Let fresh air in if meeting indoors, or meet outside
- Consider wearing a face covering in crowded, enclosed spaces
- Get tested if you have COVID-19 symptoms, and stay at home if positive
To prove your vaccination status and gain your covid passport you will need to download the NHS App or call 119 for a paper certificate.
If you have changed address or changed your name please contact us to correct this information using the ‘contact us’ feature on this website. Please note for name changes we require a marriage certificate or an original change of name deed.
For advice on who can have a COVID passport please visit NHS COVID Pass – NHS (www.nhs.uk)
If you have had a vaccine that is not visible on your record, please either direct your enquiry to the vaccine centre where you received the vaccine or the GP Surgery and we will do our best to help sort the problem out.
I had my previous vaccines abroad, can these be added to my record to obtain a COVID passport?
We can add this information to your GP medical record, however this will not update the information used for the COVID passport. Please visit Tell the NHS about coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccinations you’ve had abroad – NHS (www.nhs.uk) for further guidance.
When can I get the next dose of the COVID vaccine?
These guidelines are correct at the time of writing them (20/12/21)
5 – 11 year olds can have a 2nd dose 8 weeks after the 1st dose (for children in this age group each dose is a third of the adult dose)
12-17 year olds should have their 2nd dose from 12 weeks after their 1st dose.
18 years and over should have their 2nd dose from 8 weeks after their 1st dose.
People aged 12 years and over with a weakened immune system are being offered a 3rd dose of a coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccine. This is also known as a 3rd primary dose. If you’re eligible, your GP or hospital consultant should contact you to let you know you can get a 3rd dose. The 3rd dose should be given from 8 weeks after the second dose.
91 days from your 2nd dose
If you have had COVID you cannot have any dose of the covid vaccine for 28 days from the date of your positive result if you are 18 and over or 12 weeks if you are between 12-17 years old
Applying for a medical exemption for the Covid 19 Vaccination, how do I do this?
If you feel you are clinically eligible to apply for an exemption for the Covid 19 vaccination, please contact 119.
They will ask you for some further information and if they feel you could be considered eligible, they will send you a form.
This form will require some further information from yourself, in particular the rationale of why you feel you should be considered exempt. Once you have done this, you then pass the form to us and we will send this onto your GP. The GP will either approve or disapprove and we will inform you of the outcome.
