The Elms Medical Centre
From next week (7th June) patients aged 25 – 30 that are registered with a Practice in Bury are eligible for the COVID vaccination. Please click this link to book your own appointment: https://covid.nhsbookings.com/gmpcn
Guidance on who should receive which vaccine is regularly updated based on COVID-19 infection rates, monitoring of side effects and vaccine availability. Based on the latest information the recommendation is that anyone aged below 40 years be only offered the Pfizer vaccine and not the Astra Zeneca one, unless you have already had the first dose without any problems, or for medical reason as instructed by your GP.’
Therefore, if you are below 40 years of age please do not book yourself into an AZ clinic, you will risk being turned away due to this new guidance.
✅ Anyone aged 25+ can get the vaccine.
✅ Book now.
✅ Should there be no availability when you try, keep trying, when deliveries are made, more appointments are released.
❌ Do not book AZ clinic if you are below 40, unless otherwise instructed by your GP
❌ Please don’t call your Practice, we have the same access as you.
You can download the NHS App on to your mobile phone to view your vaccination history. To view the history you need to call into the surgery to fill in a Vision Online registration form and bring 2 forms of identification, one must be photo ID and one proof of address. Once you have handed this back to reception it will take up to 5 days for the information to be available to you.
We understand you have questions about the vaccination programme as it extends to more groups. To help us deal with the high volume of enquiries, could you please check the links below for NHS information?
