ATTENDING YOUR VACCINATION APPOINTMENT
Thank you for your co-operation.
COVID-19 Vaccine Frequently Asked Questions
When will I be eligible to get the vaccine?
We are currently following rules outlined by the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) on which groups should receive their vaccinations first. This is the priority list as outlined by the JCVI: https://bit.ly/3i3rVwC
Please also consider that we are reliant on the supply of vaccines for the speed at which we vaccinate our population.
I am a frontline worker, why have I not been invited yet?
If you are a frontline healthcare or social care worker and have not yet been invited for your vaccination, please check within your organisation first. If there is no plan in place for COVID-19 vaccinations within your organisation then please ask your employer to contact us on 01524 843333.
I am housebound, when will I be vaccinated?
At this time we are awaiting guidance on how to transport vaccine doses to individuals who are housebound. We will be in contact with our housebound patients as soon as we can.
If you think you would be able to get to the Health innovation Campus (there is wheelchair access) for your vaccination then please call the practice on 01524 843333 and we will be able to arrange that for you as long as you are currently eligible.
How will I be contacted to be invited to book an appointment?
If we have a mobile number for you on our records then you will receive a text from which you can follow a link to book into an appointment. Alternatively, if we do not have a mobile number for you on our records then we will call you to invite you to book an appointment.
How do I know that the invitation is not a scam?
Please be aware that even if you are registered with Queen Square Medical Practice the invitation will come from Lancaster Medical Practice. Additionally, please note that Lancaster Medical Practice as well as all NHS organisations will NEVER ask for any banking information, passwords or PIN numbers. If you think you have received a false invitation, you can report it using Action Fraud: https://www.actionfraud.police.uk/.
I don’t know if my contact details are up to date
If you think that we may have an outdated phone number for you, please either ring the practice on 01524 843333 or email us at [email protected]. Please note that this is for Lancaster Medical Practice patients only.
