COVID Vaccinations

Your GP practice cannot recommend or refer you for a Pfizer vaccination unless you suffer with the following very specific conditions:

  • Hypersensitivity to the active substance or to any of the excipients listed for the AstraZeneca vaccine.
  • Patients with a history of heparin-induced thrombocytopenia and thrombosis (HITT or HIT type 2).
  • Patients who have experienced major venous and/or arterial thrombosis occurring with thrombocytopenia following vaccination with any COVID-19 vaccine should not receive a second dose of COVID-19 Vaccine AstraZeneca.  

The AstraZeneca vaccine is deemed to be extremely safe for all other groups, including those who have a history of blood clots or those who have a significant family history of blood clots.

Those who are 30 and over, a carer and those who are at high risk of developing complications from contracting COVID-19 (for example those with diabetes or heart disease) can book their vaccination by calling 119 or visiting http://nhs.uk/CovidVaccine

Those who have a query regarding their 2nd vaccination should call 0115 883 4640.

In Nottingham and Nottinghamshire, a few different health and care organisations including hospitals, GP practices, care homes and others are working together on the Covid-19 vaccination programme. This means when it is your turn to be vaccinated, this may not be at your GP practice. You will be told where to go for your appointment and how to book.

For further information on why you are being asked to wait for your Covid-19 vaccine, please read the information on the GOV.UK website or this leaflet.

About the Practice

We see patients at two surgeries.
