The NHS is now ready to deliver a vaccination programme for England so that those who need it most will be able to access vaccinations as soon as they are available.
A prioritisation list has been produced in order for the vaccine to be delivered to groups who will need it first. The NHS will contact you when you are eligible to receive the vaccine and provide you with information about location and date. In the meantime, we would ask that people do not contact the GP Surgery about when the vaccine will be available or to try to book an appointment for it.
We will contact you when it’s the right time to come forward.
******COVID-19 and Requests for Med3 (Fit Notes/Sick notes)*************

- A high temperature
- A new, continuous cough
- A loss of, or change to, your sense of smell or taste
This is taken directly from the national guidance in relation to COVID-19 only.
