COVID Vaccinations – Updated 14th April 2021

COVID – Second Vaccination

 

We have now started inviting patients for their second vaccination and are doing so strictly in the order that patients received their first vaccination.  If you received your vaccination at Tangmere or Selsey, you must return to those centres for your second vaccination, the Westgate Centre will not be able to provide you with this.

 

If you received your first vaccination at Tangmere or Selsey on or  before

 

14th February 2021 

 

and have not yet been contacted to book your second vaccination, please telephone 0333 370 4111, Monday to Friday, 8.30am-12.30pm. Please do NOT call this number if you received your vaccination after that date – your turn will come.

Vaccination Clinics Latest Information

The Chichester Alliance of Medical Practices (ChAMP) (Cathedral Medical Group, Langley House, Lavant Road, Parklands, Selsey, Southbourne Tangmere and Witterings) are continuing to run their vaccination hubs at Tangmere Village Centre and The Selsey Centre.  We are now asking that any patient in Cohorts 1 – 9 (see below), who have not yet received their first vaccination, either email their name and telephone contact numbers to ipc.covidcatchupchichester@nhs.net or telephone 0333 370 4111, Monday to Friday, 8.30am-12.30pm.

We wish to give you advanced notice that the current NHS plan is for patients to receive their second vaccination at the same site as their first vaccination.  This will mean that those patients who were vaccinated at Tangmere and Selsey will still need to go to those centres and will not be able to use the Westgate Centre.  We expect to start providing second vaccinations towards the end of March and will contact patients nearer the time.

 

When you attend the clinic, please dress warmly as occasionally the queue extends outside and after your vaccine you will need to wait for 15 minutes in a well ventilated room.  Please however dress appropriately so you can provide easy access to the top of an arm.  It would help if you can bring a piece of paper with your Name, Date of Birth and Post Code written on it.  Please advise your vaccinator if you have any allergies.

Please do not attend the vaccination hub if you have any COVID symptoms.

All of the eligible cohorts listed below are currently being vaccinated:

  • Priority 1: Residents in a care home for older adults and staff working in care homes for older adults.
  • Priority 2: All those 80 years of age and over, frontline health and social care workers.
  • Priority 3: All those 75 years of age and over.
  • Priority 4: All those 70 years of age and over, those clinical extremely vulnerable individuals over 16 years old.
  • Priority 5: All those 65 years of age and over.
  • Priority 6: Adults aged 16 to 65 years in an at risk group.
  • Priority 7: All those 60 years of age and over.
  • Priority 8: All those 55 years of age and over.
  • Priority 9: All those 50 years of age and over.

Further updates on the COVID Vaccination will be provided on this news page as they become available.

Potential Fraudulent COVID Vaccination Telephone Calls and Emails – Updated 14 January 2021

URGENT: Given the scale needed for the Covid-19 vaccination programme all local GP surgeries will be using a range of ways to contact patients to book their appointment. This includes phone call and text message. You will never be asked for anything other than a few personal details to confirm your identification and you will certainly never be asked for anything financial.  In responding to this, please be mindful of the following:

We are aware that some people are receiving fraudulent calls and text messages offering the COVID-19 vaccination or asking for NHS Numbers in preparation for receiving the vaccination. In some cases, people are asked to press a number on their keypad or to send a text message to confirm they wish to receive the vaccine. Doing so is likely to result in a charge being applied to their phone bill. In other cases, callers are offering the vaccine for a fee or asking for bank details.

People are warned to be alert to these scams.

The vaccine is only available from the NHS and the NHS will contact you when it is your turn. You will not be asked for your NHS Number when you are contacted.  At present, appointments are only being offered to members of the public over 80 years old.

The NHS will:

NEVER ask you to press a button on your keypad or send a text asking you to confirm you want the vaccine.

NEVER ask for payment for the vaccine or for your bank details.

If you receive a call you believe to be fraudulent, hang up. If you believe you have been the victim of fraud or identity theft you should report this directly to Action Fraud on 0300 123 2040. Where the victim is vulnerable, report it to Sussex Police online or by calling 101.
