CORONAVIRUS - VACCINATION UPDATE

For COVID-19 vaccinations please contact the National Booking Service to make an appointment - not your GP practice.  All local sites are now available through the National Booking Service online or by calling 119 and it's the best way to get an appointment for both 1st and 2nd doses if you don’t have an appointment already.  Please don't hesitate, when it's your turn to be vaccinated please do so as soon as possible.  The NHS appreciates that at times the system can be busy and but be assured we will make sure everyone is offered the opportunity to be immunised so please keep trying.  New clinics are being set up all the time at various locations including some community pharmacies so your patience is appreciated.  

You can find more information on the vaccine here Covid Vaccination Leaflet and also on the Government website here. For any queries you might have please see BSW Clinical Commissioning Group's website Frequently Asked Questions 

Covid-19 Vaccination Appointment Transport

Link 6 & RWB Good Neighbour Scheme is available to take patients to and from Covid-19 vaccination appointments for those who are unable to access transport from family or friends. Please call 07879 394666 and we will do our best to accommodate your need. Barnes Couches are also offering a return transport service to Covid-19 vaccine appointments in Wiltshire for a small charge. For more information or to book call 01793 821303.

COVID-19 VACCINATION CERTIFICATES/PASSPORTS

We are unable to provide you with certification of Covid vaccination. These can be obtained from 17th May either by calling 119 (option 1, then option 2, then option 3 - vaccination status certification queries) or from the NHS App - you just need your NHS number and a passport or driving licence to set it up.  Click here for further details.
