You may have received a phone call or text message over the past few weeks regarding booking your COVID vaccination.

As you maybe aware we have also been allocated a certain number of vaccines which we are able to give in Practice.

It is important that if you have made an appointment with us or at a vaccination site, that you MUST attend. If you are unable to make the appointment please let us know in advance as these appointments can be offered to other people who are also needing the vaccine.

If you are aged over 70 or have a friend, neighbour or relative who is registered with Homestead Medical Centre who has not yet got an appointment booked for the Covid vaccine, please give us a call on 01924 384498 and we can arrange for an appointment to be booked.

The Practice has now contacted every eligible patient over the age of 70 either by phone, text or letter. If you are registered at Homestead and have not heard from us this is perhaps because we don鈥檛 hold the correct telephone number or address for you, so please give us a call on 01924 384498 and we can book your appointment.

If you have not yet booked an appointment because you are unsure or have questions, please let us know, we can arrange for one of our Clinicians to have a chat with you and answer any concerns you may have.

Thank you

These are being sent to people who live within 45 minutes of one of the centres that has been opened, which might be in a different area to where you would normally receive your healthcare.

Please do not contact your local practice about an appointment until you receive an invitation from them. They will not be able to advise you on when you will get an appointment or which centres are available. All this information is available on the national booking system website.

The centres in West Yorkshire that are currently on the national booking system are:

路 Boots pharmacy in Halifax

路 Superdrug in the Merrion Centre, Leeds

路 Pharmacy2U at the Village Hotel, Leeds

路 Pharmacy2U at Morrisons, Dewsbury Road, Wakefield.

The NHS is now offering vaccinations to people who are most at risk from Covid-19. This follows the approval of both the Pfizer BioNTech and Oxford AstraZeneca vaccines as safe and effective, after extensive trials. The first vaccinations are being offered to people in the priority groups identified by the Joint Committee of Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI), starting with people in care homes and those aged 80 and over. Groups of GP practices are working together to provide local vaccination services and will contact eligible patients when it is their turn.

When it is your turn, you will receive an invitation via the phone or through a letter either from your GP or the national booking system.

We know lots of people will be eager to get protected but please could we kindly ask you not to contact the practice for information about the vaccine or to ask for an appointment, as you will not be able to get one until you receive an invitation.

If you are invited for a vaccine, please act on your invite straight away and make sure you attend your appointments when you arrange them.

Please note that vaccinations are free of charge and only available through the NHS. Anyone who claims to be able to provide you with a vaccine for a fee is likely to be committing a crime and should be reported to the Police online or by calling 112. The NHS will never ask you to press a button on your keypad or send a text asking you to confirm you want the vaccine.

In the meantime, please continue to abide by all the social distancing and hand hygiene guidance, which will still save lives

For more information about the vaccine, please visit www.nhs.uk

馃挋 Visiting during the festive period馃挋

馃巹 We recognise that Christmas is a special time and that people will want to have the opportunity to visit their loved ones in hospital.

Whilst we have taken into consideration the latest Government announcement about the loosening of restrictions only on Christmas day, we have made the decision to allow visitors at all of our hospital sites during a five day period between 23 and 27 December because it鈥檚 been such a tremendously difficult year for so many families that we feel it is the compassionate thing to do.

鈩癸笍 We still need to maintain safety for everyone and so would ask our visitors to follow all the precautions we have in place, including pre-booking of your visit, wearing a face covering and adhering to social distancing and hand hygiene whist in the hospital grounds.
