COVID VACCINATION PROGRAMME
Fairhill Medical Practice have now vaccinated over 1300 patients. Patients included in this number are the over 80’s and the over 75’s. We started to vaccinate the over 70’s on Friday 22nd January and will be continuing vaccinating this age group on Friday 29th January.
You will be contacted by us to arrange your vaccinations, you do not need to contact the surgery.
We will be booking patients in as soon as we receive a delivery date. If a patient does not answer our call on the number we will move to the next patient on our list.
The vaccines that we will receive will be either the Pfizer or AstraZeneca. It is not possible to choose which vaccine you receive, as we are not in control of what vaccine is delivered from NHS England. At your appointment you will receive a card which states which vaccine you were given and the date.
You will receive two doses of the same vaccine. NHS and the Joint committee on Immunisation and Vaccination guidance for both vaccines is at 12 week intervals. Please click on the link for more information: Immunisation and Vaccination guidance
Our designated site for vaccinations is now Kingston University in the John Galsworthy building. We have been very fortunate that Kingston University have kindly agreed for us to use their facilities. The address for the vaccination site is: Penrhyn Road, Kingston upon Thames, Surrey. KT1 2EE.
