Covid 19 vaccinations -
All patients aged 18 and over are invited to contact the surgery if you have not already received your 1st Covid 19 Vaccination. Pfizer vaccines are available.
On behalf of the NHS, we can confirm that all batches of the Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine used in the UK are equally safe and effective, such that two doses provide you with the expected high level of protection against Covid-19.
The vaccine brand names have created some perplexity as they will not be in use until the branded stock is distributed. It is important to note, however, that all doses used in the UK have been subject to rigorous safety and quality checks, including individual batch testing and physical site inspections, by the UK medicine’s regulator, the MHRA.
Information related to travel is managed by the Government.
The Government has commented that no Covishield vaccines have been administered in the UK and that all AstraZeneca vaccines given in the UK appear on the NHS COVID Pass as Vaxzevria. The NHS COVID Pass is the digital version of individuals’ proof of COVID-19 vaccine status, which has been available for international travel since May. The European Medicines Agency has authorised this vaccine and the Government is confident that travel will not be affected. The EU Digital Covid-19 Certificate is currently for EU citizens only, or third country nationals legally staying or resident in the EU. Information for patients about how to get an online or paper version of the NHS COVID Pass is on the NHS website.
