Boosters

The final date for Covid Booster Vaccinations at the Holsworthy Centre was Saturday the 27th of November.  Covid vaccines will now be administered at the Mass Vaccination Centres and through local drop-in clinics. This decision has been made due to mounting winter pressures in Primary Care, both locally and nationally.
 
Booster clinics given at the Holsworthy Centre were only for patients who are 80 years and over, eligible patients with underlying health conditions aged 16-79, along with health and social care workers. 
 
If you need a first, second or booster vaccination please use the National Covid Vaccination booking site on-line or call 119 to find out what's available.
Follow this link to the on-line booking site: MAKE A BOOKING
 
Booster vaccinations can only be given after 6 months (plus one week); second vaccinations can only be given 8 weeks after the first vaccination. This information has not yet changed, although an enhanced rollout of booster vaccinations was announced on 30th November 2021. 
  
 
We will be posting walk-in options, as we are made aware of these on our website and through Facebook. The walk-in clinics are not run by ourselves or our PCN, by by the County Councils.
 

For further information about vaccination, and some commonly-asked questions please go to Covid Booster FAQs

 

Flu vaccines will be given at your registered GP Practice and not with the booster vaccines. Each Practice will decide individually how they wish to administer the flu vaccines and hold clinics as they are able, and once flu vaccine supply has been confirmed.

Errors with your vaccinations

Vaccinations given here

If there is an error with your vaccine records and it was given by us, please call 01409 253692 and tell us about this issue. We will try to amend the error the same day, which updates on the national system within 24 hours. 

Vaccines given elsewhere

We are unable to change vaccine records completed elsewhere. If you have an issue with a record that was given at a different site, please contact that site to have any errors amended. If you are unable to contact the site who gave you the vaccine, please call 119 and ask for a VDRS referral. Someone from that team will then call you back and help you woth the query or correction. Once a record has been amended, it will take 24 hours to update on the national system. 

Vaccines given in other parts of the UK should now appear in the English NHS System. 

NHS Covid Pass

The NHS Covid Pass can be found on your NHS App. If you have vaccine records, or a positive test to Covid, you can receive a Covid Pass. This is to be used when travelling, and may be used for more in the future (events, nightclubs etc). The NHS Covid Pass is seperate to our clinical system, so if there is a technical issue we are unable to help. Please dial 119 if there is an issue with your Covid Pass. 

For those who had their vaccines abroad we are unable to link your vaccine to the Covid Pass. There is an update that is planned for later this year to pick up vaccines in medical records as well as those given on site. We do not know when this is going to happen. In preperation, we are able to put vaccines given abroad onto your medical record. This will not be picked up until the update. We have also been told there is work being completed to form a national team to deal with any queries regarding this, but we have no further information on this yet. 

If you need a paper vaccine record, please call 119. We are unable to supply any form of Covid Pass.

Housebound Patients

A nursing team from North Devon District Hospital have now started giving Covid booster vaccinations to patients registered at our 5 PCN practices and who are unable to leave their homes. The NDDH housebound vaccination team are contacting people ahead of their appointments to notify them of day and approximate time of the vaccination visit. The nurses are working from lists given to them by their registered practice. We will be sending letters to our housebound patients to let them know that this is happening. As we are not administering the vaccines to housebound patients, if you have any queries about this please call 119 who can advise.
