Welcome to Clee Medical Centre

Seasonal Flu Vaccination Programme 2021-2022

We will be commencing our vaccination program in the coming weeks and will be initially contacting patients via text and phone calls, please ensure that your contact details are correct and up to date to enable us to contact you without delay.

We are opening up these clinics to be booked via systmone online, the same system that you can access your records and order prescriptions on, as well as you being able to call the practice to book. We do ask that you call after 1pm any day of the week when our phones can be slightly less busy.

We have varied delivery dates throughout September to November and will run our clinics as we did last year mainly on a weekend to reduce the impact on our daily clinics and services and ensure normal daily capacity is not affected. The one way system will be in place as it was last year and we ask that you wear a mask or face covering whilst in the surgery.

Patients aged 49 and under with underlying health conditions and all patients aged 50 and over are eligible for the seasonal flu vaccination.

If you are unsure if you are eligible for a seasonal flu vaccination, our reception team are able to check this for you if you call in an afternoon when it can be less busy on the telephones.

If you are not eligible for seasonal flu vaccination on the NHS, you can either wait to see if the practice has any remaining vaccines after all eligible patients have been offered a vaccination, or you can contact a local pharmacy where you will be able to purchase the vaccine to be administered by them.

We thank you for your patience whilst we work through our eligible cohorts of patients and deliver our vaccination programme.

COVID UPDATE:

To all our patients and service users:

We are aware of the lifting of the remaining Covid 19 restrictions but we still need to act cautiously to stop the spread of the virus. People visiting health premises may be contagious without knowing it.

So we are asking everyone visiting the premises to:

Wear a face mask, maintain social distancing, use hand gel or wash your hands.  Thank you for your help in stopping the virus spreading.

PCR TESTING

With increasing numbers of positive cases, Patients who are calling for appointments with any of the symptoms of COVID-19, even if they advise us of a negative lateral flow, should always be advised to book a PCR test, isolate until they receive the results and not attend the surgery.  

A negative lateral flow test should not be taken as meaning the patient does not have COVID-19.

 Current government guidance states:

lateral flow testing is only for use in people without symptoms and a PCR test is required if a person has developed symptoms. 
Please see the link below.

COVID-19 Vaccination status information:

From 17 May 2021, people in England who have been fully vaccinated against COVID-19 can demonstrate their vaccination status for international travel. A full course is currently two doses of any approved vaccine. Vaccine status will be available from: 

  • the NHS App which you can download from app stores 

It may take more than a week for your identity to be checked and verified so you can use this service.

If you cannot access this online service, and you have had 2 vaccines, you can request a paper letter from the NHS by calling 119. Only call 119 if you are due to travel abroad in the near future and have had your second dose more than 5 working days ago. It may take 7 working days for the letter to arrive.

This practice is not able to provide you with a letter that shows your COVID-19 vaccination status.

When you're planning your travel, check the latest information on demonstrating your COVID-19 status when travelling abroad on the gov.uk website. Make sure there is time to get  proof of your vaccination status before you leave.

COVID vaccine update: 

“Grab a Jab” soon if you’re still waiting to have your COVID vaccination

 People are being urged to “Grab a Jab” if they haven’t had their COVID vaccination yet.

Almost 180,000 doses of the vaccination have been taken up in North East Lincolnshire. Having both doses of the COVID vaccine is the best way to get maximum protection from the virus. Also, if enough people have their full vaccine, we are more likely to get our everyday freedoms back and see our lives return safely to normal.

Every single person aged 18 or over has a vaccination reserved for them and there are plenty of extra slots available locally to make getting it as easy as possible. You can book online at one of 10 community vaccination sites in North East Lincolnshire by clicking http://www.nhs.uk/covid-vaccination or ringing 119. You can also drop into a pop-up clinic without an appointment. Drop ins are being arranged over the coming weeks. You can find details of drop-in clinics in our area by visiting www.northeastlincolnshireccg.nhs.uk/covid-19/vaccineclinics/.

The COVID vaccine has been tested in the same way as any other vaccine. It won’t affect your chances of getting pregnant and while there are some common, short-lived side effects such as a sore arm, a headache or tiredness for a few days, these are very mild compared to the common effects of catching the virus.

Catching COVID-19 can commonly cause:

  1. Cough for several weeks
  2. Struggling to breathe, which might even need hospital treatment
  3. Chronic tiredness for weeks or even months

You also have a much higher risk of getting serious lasting effects such as a blood clot if you get coronavirus than with any of the covid vaccines including the AZ vaccine.

It is important to have your vaccination even if you have already had COVID because we do not know how long natural immunity lasts.

It’s also vital you have your second jab as soon as it is due as having both doses gives you the maximum protection. Currently over 40s are having their 2nd vaccination 8 weeks after the first dose and this must be the same vaccine you had originally.
