We thank you for your continued patience.

Kindly note, we have limited availability at Lonsdale, however our PCN are still providing external services through K&W that have more 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).

(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
