Covid-19 vaccine updates
If you need to inform the NHS about receiving a COVID vaccination abroad please use this link.
NHS England have informed us that you can access your COVID-19 vaccination status through the free NHS App from 17 May. You can access the app through mobile devices such as a smartphone or tablet. Proof of your COVID-19 vaccination status will be shown within the NHS App. We recommend that you register with the app before booking international travel. If you do not have access to a smartphone and know that the country you are travelling to requires COVID-19 vaccination status, you can call the NHS helpline on 119 (from 17 May) and ask for a letter to be posted to you or request this online here. This must be at least 5 working days after you’ve completed your course of the vaccine. We expect the letter to take up to 5 working days to reach you. GP Practices cannot provide letters showing your COVID-19 vaccination status. GP Practices cannot get you an earlier vaccination slot.
We will contact patients when the Covid-19 vaccine is available for them. Please DO NOT contact us but just keep rechecking this webpage.
If you are in groups 1 – 9 or over 18 you can book an appointment for your COVID vaccine by calling 119 or booking this via the national online booking system. The local GP hub’s are no longer in operation.
Please read this leaflet to explain why you might need to wait: Covid-19 Vaccine: Why do I have to wait Leaflet.

Patients cannot currently receive the vaccine at Crown Street Surgery but will be booked into a Covid-19 vaccination centre (likely at Ealing Town Hall or Dominion Centre in Southall). You will require 2 doses of the vaccine which are now likely to be administered at least 3 months apart. Please read this leaflet to know what to expect after having the vaccine: Covid-19 vaccine: What to expect after vaccine leaflet
As you will be aware, the COVID-19 rates of infection have increased to significant levels in our area.
At the same time we need to maximise our work of vaccinating patients with the COVID-19 vaccine.
We have been advised to free up time with our team to help look after patients with emergencies and protect patients with the vaccine.

During December, Covid infections have risen sharply in London and this has led to increased demand for hospital care.
