Byfield Medical Centre now has its supply of vaccinations and are able to offer appointments to suit you, if you qualify for your free vaccination please book your appointment as soon as possible, list below of eligibility:

 

• all children aged two to three on 31 August 2017 (born between 1 September 2013 to 31 August 2015) 

• children in reception class and school years 1, 2, 3 and 4 (vaccinated in school)

• those aged six months to under 65 years in clinical risk groups

• carers 

• frontline health and social care workers

 

We are also able to offer vaccinations during appointments and we will run some booked clinics during the week for eligible patients.

 

We encourage our patients to have their vaccinations administered in surgery for the following reasons:

 

• Your vaccination will be carried out by a fully trained nurse or health care assistant with vast experience

• Your vaccination will be recorded in your medical record immediately, minimising the risk of receiving a second injection

• We are aware of patients with certain allergies who are unable to receive the standard vaccination

• We are able to vaccinate patients on warfarin medication

• We are able to offer a chaperone if required

• All our staff have DBS clearance to deal with vulnerable adults and children

• We have anaphylactic equipment available in the event of an emergency

• You would be doing your bit to support NHS primary care services
