Walk-in covid booster available this Friday & Saturday – Guttman Vaccination Centre

Walk-in clinics are being held for COVID booster vaccinations this Friday (15 Oct) and Saturday (16 Oct) between 9.30am till 7pm at the Guttman Vaccination Centre. Anyone eligible for a booster vaccine can drop in for a jab a minimum of six months after a second dose.

Those eligible for the COVID booster programme include:

  • those living in residential care homes for older adults
  • all adults aged 50 years or over
  • frontline health and social care workers
  • all those aged 16 to 49 years with underlying health conditions that put them at higher risk of severe COVID-19 and adult carers
  • adult household contacts of an immunosuppressed individual.

Anyone who is pregnant and in one of the eligible groups can also get a booster dose.

You will be required to provide proof of eligibility on arrival.

You must also leave a minimum of six months since you had your second dose before getting your booster.

Most people will be offered a booster dose of the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine or Moderna vaccine. This means your booster dose may be different from the vaccines you had for your 1st and 2nd doses.

The mass vaccination centre in Aylesbury, the Guttmann Centre, will also be offering walk-in clinics for any first doses for over 16s or second doses (eight weeks after a first dose) for those over 17 years and 9 months.

 

Update: 13 October 2021:

Information for those aged 12 and over with severe immunosuppression

 In line with the latest advice, anyone aged 12 and over with severe immunosuppression, should have a third dose of the COVID-19 vaccine to boost their immunity.

Buckinghamshire Healthcare NHS Trust are sending out letters to anyone in this group this week.

Your GP or consultant will be in touch when it is your time to book, so you don’t need to contact anyone until you have this confirmation.

Take the letter along to your vaccine appointment and let the vaccinator know if you have already received an invitation from another source but not taken it up yet. This will help keep your records up to date for your booster 6 months later (if still advised)

Update: 7 October 2021:

Walk-in covid booster available this Saturday – Guttman Vaccination Centre

A walk-in clinic is being held for covid booster vaccinations this Saturday, 9 October between 9.30am till 7pm at the Guttman Vaccination Centre. Anyone eligible for a booster vaccine can drop in for a jab a minimum of six months after a second dose.

  • all adults aged 50 years or over
  • frontline health and social care workers
  • all those aged 16 to 49 years with underlying health conditions that put them at higher risk of severe COVID-19 (as set out in the green book), and adult carers

Update: 30 September 2021:

Autumn/ Winter vaccination planning

Winter means an increased risk of viruses and illness spreading as we stay indoors more. It’s very important to get the COVID-19 booster vaccine when invited by the NHS to boost your immunity. Health and Social Care staff can book their booster dose online or call 119 now.

There needs to be at least 6 months between your 2nd dose and the booster jab (If you are immunosuppressed your consultant or GP may advise further).

Children aged 12 – 15 are being vaccinated in schools by the Schools Immunisation Team who deliver the usual childhood vaccines every year. View more here.

It’s really important to also get your flu jab to add to that immunity boost over the winter months. Some people get a free flu jab  –  view who and more here.

You may be given your COVID-19 and flu jab at the same time, one in each arm, and this is perfectly safe. However, please don’t wait or cancel an appointment to have them together. Take up the flu or COVID-19 vaccine when offered.

And remember, it isn’t too late to get your COVID-19 vaccination booked. Better to do so now and be protected from serious illness, than wait and see.

Update: 25 August 2021:

Pregnant women: informed consent prior to attending a walk-in clinic

If you are pregnant and attend a walk-in clinic you will be asked to give what is called informed consent before you receive the vaccine. This simply means you’ve spoken with your GP, or maternity services and are happy that vaccination is the safest thing to do for you and your baby.

All sites will offer pregnant women a vaccination if they have given their informed consent. You can read more about this on this leaflet and info sheet from the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists: https://www.rcog.org.uk/globalassets/documents/guidelines/2021-02-24-combined-info-sheet-and-decision-aid.pdf

Pre-vaccination advice

If, after talking to one of the vaccination counsellors on site, you would prefer to speak further with a GP or healthcare professional from the maternity service, this can be arranged either with the vaccination site’s point of contact or with your local GP/ Maternity Service.

If you don’t live in Bucks, we can get in touch with your own GP/ Maternity Service to help arrange.

Update: 28 May 2021:

Clarification over vaccination sites operating at Stoke Mandeville Stadium (Guttman Vaccination Centre)

Please be aware, there has been some confusion around the two different vaccination sites currently running from the Stoke Mandeville Stadium location (also known as the Guttman Stadium). Each of these vaccination sites operates at the stadium on different days, and with different teams, and they are completely separate from one another.

One is the GP-led vaccination site which has been operating at the stadium since January. In most cases appointments for this vaccination site are arranged when patients are contacted by their GP practice (or, in some cases, when patients have contacted their GP practice to book). This site is offering vaccines to patients in priority groups 1-9 (people aged 50 and over, the clinically extremely vulnerable, health and social care staff, and carers). It will continue to operate at the stadium until 19 June.

The other is the National Large-Scale Vaccination Site, which was previously based at Bucks New University in Aylesbury. Appointments for this vaccination site can only be arranged via the online National Booking System or by calling 119. This is offering appointments to patients in all eligible priority groups – not just 1-9.

Although operating at the same location, each site has separate appointment systems and separate stocks of vaccines. It is not possible for one vaccination site to book appointments at the other, or to advise on the available vaccine stocks of the other site.

So, if you have any queries around your vaccine appointment at this location, please try to ensure you contact your GP only for queries around the GP-led site, or call 119 for queries around the national large-scale vaccination site.

 

GP vaccinations news – reminder

Reminder: If you are in the priority groups 10 – 12 (people aged 49 down to 18) you will need to book your appointment via the national NHS booking service when your age group becomes eligible. Some GP-led vaccination sites will not be offering vaccinations to patients in these age groups. There will continue to be, however, a number of vaccination sites available throughout Buckinghamshire and the surrounding areas via the National Booking Service or by calling 119.

GP-led vaccination sites that will not be vaccinating patient priority groups 10–12 are:

  • Norden House, Winslow
  • Buckingham Community Centre, Buckingham
  • Stoke Mandeville Stadium (please note, however – only the GP-led site will stop, from 19 June; the national Large-Scale Vaccination site also running at Stoke Mandeville Stadium will continue to operate).

 

Bookings at national vaccination centres

  • Some patients in Buckinghamshire have been contacting their GP practice in the hope of booking a vaccine appointment at one of the national Large Scale or Pharmacy led vaccination sites. This is not possible – all bookings for these sites must be via the online National Booking System or by calling 119. GP practices can only arrange or advise on a booking for a clinic they are running themselves.

 

  • Please also be aware – if patients have booked a vaccination via the National Booking System or 119, their GP Practice will not be able to confirm which type of vaccine they will be receiving.

 

Update: 26 May 2021:

New vaccine group announced

If you are aged 30 or over, or are in a priority group, you can book your vaccination online via the NHS website or by calling 119.

On the advice of the government and Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI), people aged 50 and over and the clinically vulnerable are having their second doses brought forward to counter the spread of the Indian variant. Nobody needs to contact the NHS and people will be told to rebook if they need to.

Update: 24 May 2021:

New vaccine group announced

If you are aged 32 or over by 1 July, or are in a priority group, you can book your vaccination online via the NHS website or by calling 119.

 

Vaccination sites

Please be aware,  the vaccination sites in Buckinghamshire are very busy at the moment. Please be prepared for the weather in case you have to wait outside the clinic for a short time ahead of your appointment, and please also be aware that traffic into the sites may be slightly busier than usual.

If you are aged 34 or over by 1 July, or are in a priority group, you can book your vaccination online via the NHS website or by calling 119.

Update: 19 May 2021:

New variants of concern

New variants of a virus are always a cause for concern and the NHS really wants to help protect those most at risk, as well as everyone else.

It’s really important that anyone in priority groups 1-9 get vaccinated as soon as possible. This group includes people aged 50 and over, the clinically extremely vulnerable, health and social care staff, and carers.

The strong advice for those in group 1-9 is:

  • if you haven’t had your vaccine yet, the time to book is now. Don’t delay. Book online or call 119.
  • if you are waiting for your second dose, this may be brought forward as per the latest Government advice of a maximum 8 week gap between doses. You will be contacted by the NHS or your GP, depending on how you booked initially.

If you or anyone you know has concerns or questions they want answering, please speak to a healthcare professional to get the facts.

 

New vaccine group announced

Anyone aged 36 and over before the 1 July can book their COVID-19 vaccination appointment. Book online or call 119.

Following the latest JCVI advice, you will be offered either the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine.

 Vaccine news

Following a change to government advice, people aged 30 – 39 will now receive either a Pfizer or Moderna vaccine as advised by the JCVI. You will be able to book online at sites offering those COVID-19 vaccines when the time is right.

Currently, all large scale vaccination sites in Oxford, Reading and Aylesbury are using the AstraZeneca (AZ) vaccine for second doses.

Anyone who has already had an AZ first dose with no reaction will get a second dose and are asked to attend appointments as planned. If you had a serious side effect (other than sore arm or mild headache) speak with your GP for advice.

 

Vaccination site news

The ‘Guttmann’ large scale vaccination site at Stoke Mandeville Stadium, Aylesbury, will be using AZ for first doses until Sunday, 16 May.

Alternative first doses to AZ are expected to be available at Oxford (Kassam) and Reading during the week commencing Monday, 10 May.

At all sites, first dose appointment slots for eligible groups will be opened up via the 119 telephone line or the online national booking system as soon as they become available. Visit: www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/coronavirus-vaccination/

 

The vaccination clinic based at the Odeon Cinema in Aylesbury has now moved just up the road to Buckinghamshire New University, Aylesbury Campus, 59 Walton Street, HP21 7QG. Anyone who has an appointment booked will be contacted, but please note this change if it affects your vaccination booking.

 

GP vaccinations news

Some GP practices are only offering COVID-19 vaccinations to those patients in priority groups 1-9 who have not yet had their first dose or are awaiting a second dose. Please do not contact us about vaccinations unless you are in one of these groups. You can check your eligibility here.

If you are in the priority groups 10 – 12 (people aged 49 down to 18) you will need to book your appointment via the national NHS booking service when your age group becomes eligible. This will allow you to find a suitable date and time at another site, including the Guttman Vaccination Centre at Stoke Mandeville (or another large centre in a neighbouring county) or at a participating community pharmacy. Currently, people aged 40 – 49 can book their first dose on the system, together with people in patient priority groups 1 – 9.

GP-led vaccination sites that will not be vaccinating patient priority groups 10–12 are:

  • Norden House, Winslow
  • Buckingham Community Centre, Buckingham
