COVID-19 Vaccination for Eligible Adults
We have been offering appointments for a Covid Vaccination to our registered patients since early January. If you are over the age of 70 years old and have not had contact from the surgery or are yet to book an appointment, please contact us so we can arrange your vaccination
COVID-19 vaccinations are now available to adults identified by the JCVI (Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation) as being at highest risk of catching the disease and of suffering serious complication COVID-19. If you are eligible, a member of our team will be contacting you to book an appointment. We also require your consent for vaccination.
This vaccination will be free of charge and our highest priority is delivering the vaccines to eligible patients as soon as the vaccine becomes available.
We are now starting to invite patients via SMS. This will contain a link to an online booking system and is NOT a scam. Please choose a suitable time and book your appointment. Any problems please call the Surgery and they will be able to book the appointment on your behalf.
A leaflet on COVID-19 vaccination is on the following link – please click here to read
Please click here to read, download and print your consent form. Failure to attend without a signed consent will result in us being unable to vaccinate you. If you are unable to download a consent form please collect one from your own GP surgery before the day of your appointment.
Please read the detailed guidance at: www.nhs.uk/covidvaccination

During the vaccination delivery, we will maintain the range of measures we have in place to reduce the risk of contracting COVID-19. Staff involved in administering the vaccine will be wearing personal protective equipment and will adhere to all infection prevention control measures.
The Suffolk and North East Essex ICS has today launched a brand-new website which aims to offer residents a single, comprehensive and accurate source of information about Covid-19 and vaccinations.
Visit the website here – www.sneevaccine.org.uk
The new website will be updated regularly and contain the very latest information on the ongoing vaccination programme in order to give people clarity on this major situation including:
- Most up-to-date information on who is eligible to receive the vaccine
- Latest details of locations of vaccination centres
- Updates on progress of the local vaccination programme
- Accurate information on efficacy and safety of the vaccines
- A Q&A section covering the most commonly asked questions
- Interviews with people who have received the vaccine and staff who are delivering the programme
