* VULNERABLE PATIENTS
* YOU, YOUR FAMILY AND FRIENDS
* OUR STAFF AND OUR SERVICE TO YOU
Covid-related staff absence cannot be planned for and will have a major impact on our ability to offer our normal service to patients.
We advise patients that Howden Medical Centre is now delivering COVID-19 Booster Vaccinations. Invitations will be sent out to patients to book into these clinics once they become both eligible and we have vaccines available.
Should you receive an invitation from the national booking system before you receive an invitation from the medical centre please feel free to book into an appointment available at another location at a time convenient to you, or wait to be invited by Howden Medical Centre when we have clinics running.
We advise patients that Howden Medical Centre will no longer be offering 1st or 2nd dose COVID Vaccinations due to the rollout of the Booster Programme along with delivering the Flu Vaccination Programme.
We advise all patients still requiring a 1st or 2nd dose COVID Vaccination to book either by calling 119 or online via the NHS WEBSITE website.
Howden Medical Centre is now delivering Flu Vaccinations. Eligible patients will be able to book in for a flu vaccine when we have vaccines available and clinics arranged.
We aim to deliver as many of these vaccines as possible in two large Saturday Clinics.
Following on from that we will look to deliver the remainder of our vaccines in smaller clinics during the week over the coming months.
Eligible patients can also obtain an NHS Flu Vaccination from local Pharmacies.
If you are not in one of the eligible groups but would like a Flu Vaccination you can contact local Pharmacies who may be able to provide one to you privately which you will have to pay for.

This leaflet is for patients with suspected coronavirus who have not been admitted to hospital and will be isolating at home.
It is important that patients report adverse reactions and events in relation the medicines, vaccines or medical devices to the Medicines & Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency. This will be key in the case of the deployment of covid-19 vaccinations. However, any reaction to any medicine that has been used for patients with covid-19 should be reported. There is also a seperate reporting tool for non-covid adverse reactions.
