COVID Vaccine Delivery

PCN COVID-19

We are currently giving second doses for those who have already had their first dose at Woodgate Valley Health Centre. For the under-50s, we will be working steadily backwards from the age of 50, in line with national guidance, as quickly as vaccine supplies will permit. Please remember: we will contact you when it is your turn.

For anyone over 50, at-risk and carers (Groups 1- 9) who haven’t had their 1st dose and would still like it; please let us know. We will book you in when we have appointments available or will add you to a waiting list, so that we can contact you once we have more 1st dose appointments available. Even if you declined the vaccine when we contacted you, you can change your mind, so please let us know.

We are still working with our local colleagues to deliver the vaccines as they become available and they are still being done at Woodgate Valley Health Centre, 61 Stevens Avenue, Woodgate Valley, Birmingham, B32 3SD at present.

If you have an appointment for a vaccination, we ask that you arrive on time. Please do not arrive more than 5 minutes before your appointment time as this is likely to cause longer queues and an increased waiting time.

Please also make sure that you are wearing a mask. Do not attend if you have any symptoms of COVID-19 or have tested positive for COVID-19 in the last 4 weeks.

For Pfizer vaccinations you must wait in the observation tent for 15 minutes after your vaccination irrespective of whether it is your 1st or 2nd dose. For the Astra Zeneca vaccination you will be asked not to drive for 15 minutes afterwards.

While waiting for the vaccine we remind everyone that it is more important than ever to follow the rules to protect each other as well as the NHS –

Hands – frequent hand washing and use of hand sanitiser when you cannot access soap and water.

Face – use a face covering in public whenever you can

Space – stay 2m apart

Testing – it is essential that you are tested when displaying symptoms (cough, fever 37.8+ or loss of taste/smell)

Isolate – If you or a close contact has tested positive, please obey the isolation rules to prevent spread of the virus’
