((*PLEASE VISIT THIS PAGE FOR REGULAR UPDATES ON ELIGIBLE AGES AND GROUPS))

**UPDATED NEWS 08 April 2021: Regarding safety of AstraZeneca**

 

Effective 08th April 2021 – MHRA and JCVI announcement regarding AstraZeneca Vaccine: 

(Published link here: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/use-of-the-astrazeneca-covid-19-vaccine-jcvi-statement/jcvi-statement-on-use-of-the-astrazeneca-covid-19-vaccine-7-april-2021 )

Second Doses:

  • Recipients in cohorts 1-9 who have received a first dose of AstraZeneca and are due to receive their second, no further action is required – all should continue to be offered a second dose regardless of age.
  • MHRA are clear that the only individuals who should NOT have a second dose of AstraZeneca are: patients with a history of cerebral venous sinus thrombosis, acquired or hereditary thrombophilia, heparin-induced thrombocytopenia or antiphospholipid syndrome should only be considered when the potential benefit outweighs any potential risks. Patients who have experienced major venous and arterial thrombosis occurring with thrombocytopenia following vaccination with any COVID-19 vaccine should not receive a second dose of COVID-19 Vaccine AstraZeneca.

First Dose:

  • First doses for individuals 30 years of age and over and those who have underlying health condition which puts them at a higher risk of severe COVID-19 disease: SHOULD continue their appointment.
  • Adults under the age of 30 WITHOUT underlying health conditions, in phase 1, prioritised due to an increased risk of exposure and/or to reduce the risk of passing the infection on to vulnerable individuals – this includes health and social care workers, unpaid carers and household contacts of immunosuppressed individuals – Acting on a precautionary basis – preferred for the patients to be offered alternative vaccine, if available.

For these recipients in cohorts 1-9 aged under 30 who have yet to receive a COVID-19 vaccination and are scheduled to receive a first dose of AstraZeneca on or after the 09 April, the following apply:

  • Bookings will automatically be cancelled – Patients under 30 will need to contact the Practice and request a ‘risk assessment’ be completed by a GP

Vaccine appointments:

Please be advised, We are now vaccinating patients in the eligible categories at our Lonsdale Site; 24 Lonsdale Road NW6 6RR.

If you are aged *45 and over, within clinically vulnerable groups 1-9, or are a carer for a disabled child, please speak to one of our receptionists who will book you in.

Kindly note, we have limited availability at Lonsdale, however our PCN are still providing external services through K&W that have hundreds of appointments available at the below sites, however you MUST have a CONFIRMED APPOINTMENT first before attending:

  • The Swaminarayan School, 260 Brentfield Rd, Neasden, NW10 8HE
  • Wembley Health and Care Centre 116 Chaplin Road, Wembley HA0 4UZ

 

The online system will also indicate what type of vaccination is being offered at the sites. You may have already received a message inviting you to have the vaccination with a link attached to the automated booking system, or a letter from the NHS advising you to book directly with them: 

https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/coronavirus-vaccination/book-coronavirus-vaccination/

Where possible, please use this option to avoid long call waiting times as our lines are extremely busy. Bookings can also be made via Patient Access

Should you have a COVID Vaccination appointment, please ensure you keep it. Vaccinations from failed appointments are wasted as the vaccine has a short lifespan, and we need your help to ensure there is no wastage. 

Kindly note; please arrive on time for your appointment at Lonsdale and are wearing a face mask. We will only open the doors to a maximum of 6 people at a time to ensure we maintain social distancing measures, and once in the reception waiting area, kindly have your arm ready to receive the vaccination before you are called in to the clinicians’ room. 

(If you have tested positive for COVID-19, please allow up to 4 weeks before being booked in for the vaccination).

**************************************************************************************

Please note, Lonsdale Medical Group will only be providing the Oxford AstraZeneca Vaccine.

If you have been invited to have your second dose; please be aware that you can only book at the Practice if your first dose was also AstraZeneca, and any patients booked incorrectly will have their appointment cancelled and will be notified of such.

Patients who wish to have, or first dose was the Pfizer vaccine; kindly book via the NHS website.

You may call the admin team for assistance, however please note that there are current restrictions/limitations on booking for the Pfizer Vaccine.

Patients who received the Pfizer vaccination on or before the 5th of January are to book in for the second dose.

The NHS kindly ask patients who received the Pfizer vaccine AFTER this date, to wait for 8-12 weeks to pass.

*** Housebound patients are asked to make themselves known if they are awaiting their second dose of the AstraZeneca to the admin team***

** Astra Zeneca cannot be administered for patients under the age of 18. If you have a child who requires the Covid-19 Vaccine, please ensure you opt for the Pfizer at one of the alternative sites **

We thank you for your continued patience.
