Vaccination

Who is eligible for a COVID-19 vaccination?

We are only permitted to vaccinate in line with national guidance from the Joint Committee on Vaccinations and Immunisations (JCVI). People aged 18 and over are now invited to be vaccinated.

For more information please visit nhs.ukIf you meet the current critera group, you can book an appointment via the National Booking Service or by calling 119.

 

Home ParkVaccination Clinic

Our vaccination clinic is now at Home Park following the closure of Derriford Centre for Health and Wellbeing at Derriford Hospital on 16 July 2021. (If you had a second appointment booked at DCHW, please attend at the same time and date at Home Park instead.)

 

Our Vaccination Centre Opening Hours

We will accept drop-ins for the vaccines we are running on the days we are operational, alongside those people arriving with booked appointments. Second doses must be at least 8 weeks after the first dose. There will be a separate queue for booked appointments and drop-ins. Both queues are expected to be short and fast moving.

**An important message for anyone with a vaccination appointment booked at Derriford Centre for Health and Wellbeing (DCHW)**

Following the announcement of the closure of the vaccination centre at Derriford Centre for Health and Wellbeing (DCHW) we are pleased to confirm that second doses of Pfizer, AZ and Moderna will all be available at Home Park. If you had an appointment booked at DCHW after 16 July (AZ) or 01 August (Pfizer), we will be able to offer you your original appointment date and time for your Pfizer or AZ vaccine at Home Park instead. **If you have already been contacted or re-booked then please attend on your new date.**

If you have not been contacted and wish to keep your original appointment then you do not need to do anything more, just make sure that you attend Home Park vaccination centre on the day of your appointment. Pfizer appointments will start at Home Park from 01 August.

Home Park now has appointments available that people can book into if they want to change the day or time of their original appointment. This will need to be done through the online booking system: https://www.nhs.uk/.../coro.../book-coronavirus-vaccination/

 

Information leaflets, including other languages

Public Health England has published various information leaflets about COVID-19 vaccination in various languages. Click on the links below to see all languages:

 

 

Please note, the NHS will NOT ask for payment or bank details to book any vaccine or testing appointments, or to prove your identity.

Cybercriminals are using the roll out of the NHS COVID-19 vaccine to target victims with convincing looking text messages. The text appears to be from the NHS and state that the recepient is elegible to receive the vaccine. Recipients are then encouraged to click on a hyperlink to an application form. The link takes you to an extremely convincing fake NHS website which asks for personal and financial details. Remember, the NHS will NEVER ask for your payment details.

 

Testing

The main symptoms of coronavirus are: a high temperature, a new, continuous cough and a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste. Most people with coronavirus have at least one of these symptoms. If you have Covid-19 symptoms, get a test as soon as possible.

If you don’t have Covid-19 symptoms, do not come forward for a test – you could be taking a test away from someone who really needs it. Only if you have one of the three symptoms should you book a test.

If someone in your household starts to have symptoms, then that person must get tested and the rest of the household should self-isolate with them whilst they wait for the results. If you or other members of the household don’t have symptoms, then you should not get a test – only people with symptoms should get tested. Please answer any screening question honestly so our teams can help you in the best way possible. The vast majority of people who are tested in person get their results the very next day. Full guidance on self-isolation is available on gov.uk.

If you are self-isolating or in quarantine, then a negative test result does not mean you can end isolation early. The virus can take time to develop and so a test early on does not prove that you won’t go on to develop the virus. That means you could still be at risk of spreading the disease to other people.

Do not call 111 for a test. If you have symptoms and need to book a test, you can do this online on the gov.uk website or by ringing 119. We do not offer drop-in COVID-19 testing.
