Covid Vaccination

Current Covid Vaccination Groups


Spring Boosters for over 75s
5th Doses for Immunocompromised individuals age 12 and over

JCVI and NHS England have recently announced a number of proposals for the next stage of the Covid-19 vaccination campaign. These proposals, once launched will take several weeks to be put into action, due to manpower and vaccine availability issues. We request that patients do not contact GP practices or the NHS about this, as they will be contacted when we are in a position to offer these services. The NHS will make contact with you mainly by SMS, but when no response Phone or Letter.

More information is on the JCVI Website

Please help us by updating your mobile phone number online or via receptions so that you will receive messages.

  • Patients will be recalled in age and disease order, in a similar way to the initial vaccination campaign with oldest and most vulnerable (over 80, housebound, care homes) being called first.
  • You will only be recalled once 6 months have elapsed from your third vaccination. Patients who are truly housebound can be vaccinated at home.

Covid Vaccination Clinic Locations

We will start to send invitations by SMS or phone will go out to the oldest and most vulnerable first, in the same order as the previous stages of the vaccination campaign.

  • We will be offering appointments at Marshfield Community Centre and at Christchurch Surgery in Downend, or you may get invited via 119 to a mass vaccination site.

How to access your COVID-19 vaccination status 

You can access your COVID-19 vaccination status through the free NHS App from 17th May.  You can access the app through mobile devices such as a smartphone or by tablet.  Proof of our COVID-19 vaccination status will be shown within the NHS App.  We recommend that you register with the app before booking international travel.

If you do not have access to a smartphone and know the country you are travelling to requires COVID-19 vaccination status, you can call the NHS helpline on 119 (from 17 May) and ask for a letter to be posted to you.  This must be at least 5 days after you've completed your course of vaccine.  We expect the letter to take up to 5 days to reach you.

Do not contact the surgery about your COVID-19 vaccination status.  GPs cannot provide letters showing your COVID-19 vaccination status.

Who can get the vaccine?

If you are a Carer - and are not known to the practice or wider system please read the letter Information for Carers requesting vaccination  here or -please contact info@carerssupportcentre.org.uk  or  0117 965 2200 for South Gloucestershire to be registered. 

Families of immunocompromised or shielded. A number of our patients are immunocompromised (have less strong immunity) due to medications or underlying medical conditions. We have vaccinated this group early in the campaign. All household members over 18 are now (April 2021) encouraged to be vaccinated. Due to changes in availability of vaccines, and restrictions on the age of AstraZeneca vaccine -delivering these has not been possible as quickly as we would have liked. We have been contacting immunocompromised patients to try to identify their family members via SMS and phone to offer them vaccine, which is available both by the national hub and through our vaccination centre. If you have not been contacted -please ring your surgery and we will assist you to get your vaccination.

At this stage we are following a series of nationally defined criteria and that allows us to contact the people we want to come forward for vaccination. We are working tirelessly to vaccinate our patients as quickly as possible using every potential slot and every dose of vaccine as soon as we receive it.  Please be patient and kind to our staff; we will be in touch when it is your turn.
