Seasonal Flu Vaccination Campaign 2022
We will be holding 2 Saturday morning flu clinics on
Saturday 24 September 2022, from 8.00 am – 1.00 pm
Saturday 15 October 2022, from 8.00 am – 1.00 pm
We are aiming to vaccinate 100% of eligible patients this year, as defined by NHS guidelines. We may be able to open our offer beyond those eligible after 31 October 2022 (dependent on stocks/uptake).
Saturday clinics will focus on patients who are able to walk and stand unaided for up to 20 minutes. No seating available. Flu Vaccinations (and possibly COVID vaccines once details are confirmed) will be administered with patients stood up and a strict one-way system through the Practice will be in operation. We will continue to wear face coverings to protect your healthcare setting.
For patients with mobility issues we will be holding weekday flu clinics. Our PCAs will triage at the time of booking.
Housebound patients will be contacted by the practice in due course.
These are appointment only clinics.
Appointments will be available to book from 1 September 2022. Please contact the surgery on 01636 892156, book online or ask at Reception.
COVID-19 Vaccination Programme – 2022
The Collingham Medical Centre is supporting the COVID Vaccine Campaign for Newark and Collingham Districts – this is for all eligible patients of all ages where the vaccination has been opened including Spring Boosters and 5-11 yrs old COVID Vaccinations.
This site is one of a number of locations you can receive your COVID vaccination – other services and locations can be found on the national booking system -Coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccines - NHS (www.nhs.uk) or dial 119.
We have started to contact patients with mobile numbers with a text link to book directly into a slot … the text reads “Book your COVID Vac at Collingham Medical Centre, NG23 7LB” followed by a link which takes you straight to dates/times to choose at Collingham Medical Centre.
For patients without mobile numbers noted on your records, you can call 119 once you receive your invite to say you are eligible.
We aim to deliver a large part of this campaign at weekends at the Collingham Medical Centre in order not to disrupt your general practice services during the working week.
