COVID-19 Vaccination Booster Programme

The Collingham Medical Centre will be supporting the Booster (3rd dose) COVID Vaccine Campaign.    Now we have Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) approval, we are getting ourselves ready to support the Newark & Collingham communities.

Eligible patients need a minimum of 6 months between their last COVID Vaccine and booster.   For our communities these will start to be due from mid-October.  

Once we have confirmation of vaccine delivery, we will contact eligible patients to invite.   There is no need to contact us.   

We aim to deliver a large part of this campaign at weekends in order not to disrupt your general practice services during the working week.

Proof of COVID-19 vaccination status
From 17 May, patients can access their COVID-19 vaccination status though the NHS App. Patients are being advised by Gov.uk that they do not need to contact their GP surgery about their COVID-19 vaccination status.

FREE Lateral Flow Test Devices are available from the Collingham Pharmacy - it is important to continue to test to protect you, your family and our community.  Follow national guidance to isolate on a positive test and attend a PCR testing Centre. 

Lateral Flow Testing offers reassurance that you are not carrying the virus, even if symptom free.   If you have symptoms, please book PCR test and isolate.

Our dispensary is co-located in the Collingham Pharmacy and also offers a range of over-the-counter medicines and trained staff will provide advice on medicines and health care.  Other services include disposal of unwanted medicines and medicine containers.  The Pharmacist offers a Minor Ailments Scheme, Emergency Contraception, Blood Pressure Measurements and Medicine Use Reviews.
The dispensary offers a delivery service, subject to eligibility.  In Collingham dispensaries the decision to deliver is based on the clinical heath of the recipient.  Some villages do have volunteers who are willing to collect prescriptions fortnightly (again largely to support housebound patients in their community).  It is not a right of an NHS patient to receive free delivery. 
 
Please note ~ we would like to advise that some Partners of Collingham Medical Centre do have a financial interest in Collingham Pharmacy.  However, patients may use a pharmacy of their choice either within Collingham or elsewhere.
The Collingham Pharmacy do operate a subscription based delivery service.   Please enquire in the Pharmacy.
