If you do not have a registered telephone number the practice will contact you via letter to invite you to book your vaccination.
You will be contacted by the GP practice and invited for your vaccine when NHS England (NHSE) advise that your priority group can be vaccinated and vaccines are received. Please do not contact the practice, we will contact you.
You may get more than 1 invitation, from the government or the practice, just choose the one that is most convenient for you to attend.
The vaccination site for this practice is The Glen Primary Care Centre in Hebburn. Please be patient as it will take some time to roll out the vaccine to everyone, we can only vaccinate in order of priority groups so please do not contact the practice to ask to be vaccinated earlier.
CERTIFICATION OF COVID VACCINATION
Your General Practice is unable to offer you a certification of covid vaccination, a vaccination passport or a letter to prove you have been vaccinated against covid-19
These proof of vaccination documents have not yet been developed and as such cannot be provided by your GP. As soon as we have further information we will share it with you.
