19/04/2021 Update: The next Covid vaccination clinic is for second  Astra Zeneca immunisations on Tuesday 27th  April at Hazel Grove Baptist Church

 

This is for patients who received their first vaccination on 6th Febuary or shortly after - we have sent out text invites where we can (Check your phone!)  and are now working on phoning people who we dont have a mobile number for. 

 

 

Carers

If you are a carer, in receipt of carers allowance, or unpaid and registered with Stockport Signpost for carers, please let us know as, you qualify for immediate vaccination.

 

 

Household contacts of Immunocompromised patients

If you are over 16 and live with someone who is immuniocompromised perhaps due to medication they take or, a medical condition that they have, you should contact us to be vaccinated

 

 

Thank you again for the messages of support and for your patience if its taking a little longer to answer phones or enquires.


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Background – The largest mass vaccination programme in  history!

• We have had, and will continue to have, little control over when the vaccine is supplied to us. This means appointment times and arrangements will be at short notice – if you are “next in line” this might be “on the day!”.

• We have no control over which vaccines we will be getting and therefore we will not be able to allow patients to choose which vaccine they have.
• We are organising clinics as below. We have no certainty of the dates of future deliveries and therefore when future clinics will be. We will keep you informed via our website, Facebook and the telephone information line (Option “0”) as soon as we know.
• For reasons of vaccine stability and medicines licencing, we can presently only vaccinate from one physical base: Hazel Grove Baptist Church (with the exception of Care Homes where special Arrangements are in place)

 

 

I have had a letter inviting me to book in to have the vaccination in Birmingham / Leek / Macclesfield / Manchester – what should I do?
• This is as a result of the push to roll out mass vaccination as quickly as possible

• As things stand all patients in Cohorts 10-12 ie aged 18-49 will be invited to book into a vaccination centre from the range available.

How will the programme work?
Based on national criteria we are vaccinating in cohorts based on vulnerability.

 

 

How will I get my appointment?
• You will either receive a text message or a telephone call inviting you to attend the clinic. The text message will ask you to click on a link taking you directly to the booking system to book your appointment.
• If we do not have a mobile phone number registered on our system for you we will telephone you and book the appointment directly with you.
• You may be asked to attend clinics at very short notice. Please try to attend.
• If you have queries about the vaccine its self please call 0161 426 9910 or email stoccg.pxenquiries@nhs.net
• There is an option “0” on our telephone system with information about progress which we will update regularly.
 Please DO NOT speak to Receptionists who cannot tell you any more and are busy booking people in.

 

 

Can I change my appointment?
• Possibly in advance, the time on the day however,  as we do not know when we will get next vaccine supplies, if you relinquish an appointment we are unlikely to be able to book you another straight away

 

 

Where will my vaccination be?
• At this time most vaccinations will take place at and you will need to be able to get to: Hazel Grove Baptist Church Station Street Hazel Grove SK7 4EX   http://www.hgbc.org.uk/how-to-find-us


 

What will happen when I get to the clinic?
• You will receive an appointment time. Please aim to arrive as close to that time as possible.
• We understand people will want to ensure they get there in time but if you are early,  please wait in your car until 10 minutes before your appointment time.
• We will ask everyone to wear a face covering and to maintain social distancing rules at all times.
• There will be lots of staff to help you get to where you need to be.

• When you come into the Church you will be directed to “check in” and given a “ticket” with your details on
• Following that you will be directed to one of the vaccination stations.
• Please wear clothing that will allow easy access to your upper arm.
• Once you have received your vaccination depending upon the specific brand we may need to monitor you for 15 minutes to ensure that you don’t have any reaction (if this was going to occur it would be within 15 minutes)
Please note that reactions  to the COVID vaccination are very rare.

 

 

 

Please Note
This programme requires a lot of staff time to coordinate when, we may also have sickness, self-isolation and childcare issues. 
Please be understanding and considerate of the pressure doctors, nurses, reception and administrative staff are under at this time – we are doing our best for you!
