JCVI advice on COVID-19 booster vaccines for those aged 18 to 39 and a second dose for ages 12 to 15 - published 29/11/21

CURRENT NHS GUIDANCE FOR 12 TO 17 YEAR OLDS- updated 2/12/21:

Risk of COVID-19 infection in children

The children and young people at greater risk include those living with serious conditions such as:

- cancers (such as leukaemia or lymphoma)
- diabetes
- serious heart problems
- chest complaint or breathing difficulties, including poorly controlled asthma
- kidney, liver or a gut disease
- lowered immunity due to disease or treatment (steroid medication, chemotherapy or radiotherapy)
- an organ transplant
- a neurodisability or neuromuscular condition
- a severe or profound learning disability
- Down’s syndrome
- a problem with your spleen, for example sickle cell disease, or you have had your spleen removed
- epilepsy
- serious genetic problems
- other serious medical conditions as advised by your doctor or specialist

For most children and young people COVID-19 is usually a milder illness that rarely leads to complications. For a very few the symptoms may last for longer than the usual 2 to 3 weeks. The vaccination will help to protect you against COVID-19.

Currently the vaccine licensed for children and young people is the Pfizer vaccine. This is what you will be offered.

Latest Green Book Guidance on vaccination following COVID infection in children:

In younger people, protection from natural infection is likely to be high for a period of months, and vaccination in those recently infected may increase the chance of side effects. Therefore, vaccination should ideally be deferred till at least twelve weeks from onset (or sample date) in children and young people under 18 years who are not in clinical risk groups.

This includes children and young people who developed Paediatric multisystem inflammatory syndrome temporally associated with SARS-CoV-2 infection (PIMS-TS) in association with COVID-19 infection and then become eligible for vaccination. Current advice in PIMS-TS cases suggests that an interval of 12 weeks should be observed, although earlier administration can be considered in those at risk of infection and/or who are fully recovered. 

Healthy school-aged children aged 12 to 15 will primarily receive their COVID-19 vaccination in their school with alternative provision for those who are home schooled, in secure services or specialist mental health settings.

COVID VACCINATION LEAFLETS FOR CHILDREN

WE ARE NOW BOOKING 2ND DOSE PFIZER JABS 8 WEEKS AFTER THE FIRST DOSE

OUR FIRST DOSE PFIZER VACCINE CLINIC ON 27/6/21 AT WATFORD FOOTBALL GROUND WAS A RESOUNDING SUCCESS

The JCVI (Joint Committee on Vaccination & Immunisation) have issued advice in relation to the MRHA (Medicines & Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency) advice on the Astra-Zeneca (Oxford) vaccine:

- "Those who have received the first dose of the Astra-Zeneca vaccine should continue to be offered the second dose according to schedule"

- "Adults aged 18-39 years without underlying health conditions to receive an alternative to the Oxford/AstraZeneca vaccine – where available and only if this does not cause substantial delays in being vaccinated."

Registrations 

The practice is currently accepting new patients, please see here for registration details.

Contacting You....

We have introduced a texting service via your mobile phone to send you messages.  These messages could be a reminder about an appointment, asking you to contact us to make an appointment for a  review or a health check.  In some instances we may confirm results of blood tests.   We also may at times contact you via email.  Please let us know if you do or do not wish to be contacted either by text or email, if you do wish to be contacted we will require you to come into the surgery and show a form of ID (photo if possible) and confirm your mobile and or email address.

You may have seen on the news that from Monday 17 May, doors at GP practices are ‘re-opening’. As you will know, our GP practice has been open throughout the pandemic, offering patients telephone and online appointments, with face to face consultations available for those who need them. This was in-line with national requirements to keep patients safe, whilst COVID infection rates were high and before the vaccination was widespread.

GP practices are now being encouraged to offer patients a choice of whether they would like a remote or face to face consultation. However, before we have more people coming into the surgery to see us in person, we need a bit of time to put in place measures to keep everyone safe.

As we wait for further national guidance on doing that, we ask that patients continue to contact us by phone or online as you have been doing.  We are facing unprecedented demands for our services and will need to continue to adjust how we use our clinicians’ time to best support our patients – particularly those who need us the most.

Covid Restriction Update:
Throughout the pandemic we have strived to make the surgery as safe as possible for all our patients and staff. We will continue to do so going forward.
From the 19th July nothing will change at the surgery – patients will need to still wear a mask, socially distance and use hand sanitiser in the surgery and staff will continue to wear PPE. We do understand that it can be frustrating, but we know that when people come to us they are sick and vulnerable (and some cannot receive the Covid vaccinations due to medical reasons) so we feel it would be wrong to not take these small precautions that can protect people.
In terms of opening up, as many of you know, we have never been shut and in fact have consulted with much higher numbers of patients than we did pre-Covid (face to face, by phone, by e consult and by video), not counting vaccinating most of the adult population twice in the last 6 months.
Suthergrey House has come so far in trying to minimise the impact of Covid and we are sure you understand that we need to keep the surgery as safe for ALL patients and staff as we can.
