Covid Vaccine Update 17.01.2021
While the Covid Vaccination Programme is running in Ely North and Ely South Primary Care Networks, we will try to update here weekly. Please feel free to share to other public fora as we would like our patients, our volunteers, and our wider community to know the latest news.
First, once again, a MASSIVE THANK YOU to all the volunteers who came out this week to help us at the Covid vaccination clinics. Thursday was brutally cold at Cathedral and we were all so impressed by and grateful for your stoicism and smiling faces - truly incredibly job. Staploe - equally awesome, with a slightly gentler ride weather-wise this week! As with last week, everyone was so professional, personable, and lovely to work with - it's such a great experience for staff and patients alike, and such a positive community thing, so thank you.
Second, the vaccination programme is ramping up nationally now. We are starting to see the pace picking up, so we wanted to say: this is a long-term thing. Volunteers, please pace yourselves! We will be expanding our volunteer base over the coming weeks, first by working through the 200 amazing offers of help we haven't yet used. If we need more, we will let you know.
Third, please all be reassured that all six practices are still open to serve you all for all your healthcare needs, alongside this. As always, it is easy to contact us online via askmyGP or phone and speak to our reception teams if you don’t have internet access.

WARNING: COVID-19 Vaccination Text Message Scam
Please be aware that there are currently scam text messages circulating saying that you are "now eligible to apply for your vaccine" and they give you a link to a web page which then asks for bank card details to prove your identity. This message is not genuine. You will never be asked for any money or bank details to get your COVID vaccination as it is being provided free of charge.
We are asking all visitors to wear a face covering. The face covering MUST cover your nose and mouth; ideally the bottom part of the covering should sit under your chin. If there is any reason why you are not able to wear a face covering, please inform the Receptionist on arrival.

Psychological Impact of COVID-19
REC reference: 20/HRA/1934
Version 1.1 29Oct20
Researchers from a collaboration group would like to invite you to take part in a short questionnaire exploring the psychological impact of the coronavirus, its effect on our emotions, behaviour and wellbeing. This is the second phase of recruitment. If you took part in the first phase of the study, you are still able to take part in this second phase, conversely if you did not take part in first phase; you are still able to take part in this second phase
The aim of this survey is to better understand how the coronavirus pandemic and resultant restrictions/lockdown are affecting our day to day lifestyle. We hope to find out what is helpful for people during this time and also what may be causing some people to be affected more than others in terms of their wellbeing.
Anyone over the age of 16 with access to be able to complete this online questionnaire can take part.
It is up to you to decide whether to take part or not. You are free to withdraw from the study at any time, without giving a reason and without consequence. This survey is completely voluntary and you can stop completing it at any time. You also do not have to answer any questions you don’t want to, you can just skip them.
