Covid-19 vaccines for frontline health and care workers
We are currently offering Covid-19 vaccinations to all frontline health and care workers in Surrey Heartlands, in line with the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) guidance.
If you are a frontline health and social care worker, living or working in Surrey Heartlands, are aged 30 years and over and not pregnant and have not received an invitation to book through your employer, we are now directing eligible staff to book through the National Booking Service or use the national booking helpline by dialling 119 (free of charge).
Eligible staff will need to formally declare that they are a Health Care or Social Care worker and produce photographic ID and proof of employment at the vaccination appointment.
If you have any difficulties accessing a first dose Covid-19 vaccination appointment, please contact us on:
Coronavirus Vaccination Programme – Privacy Information for Health and Care Staff
The Covid-19 vaccination programme in Surrey Heartlands is being rolled out to all health and social care workers who have frequent face-to-face contact with patients and who are directly involved in patient care in either secondary or primary care, mental health, urgent and emergency care and community settings. This includes those working in independent, voluntary and non-standard healthcare settings such as hospices, and community-based mental health or addiction services.
NHS Surrey Heartlands CCG, on behalf of the Local Resilience Forum, have worked with partners to establish a booking system for these individuals to receive vaccinations at various sites within Surrey Heartlands.
Your employer will provide you with information on how to sign up to receive the vaccine and will share relevant information about you with the provider of your local vaccination service to allow you to be invited for vaccination.
When it is the right time for you to receive your vaccination you will receive an invitation to come forward by email, SMS, or telephone.
We know lots of people will be keen to get protected from the virus but we are asking people not to share these vaccination booking details with friends of family as we have a limited number of vaccines to offer and need to ensure these are provided to those providing Health and Care services first. Other people within the community will be contacted directly for their own appointment.
