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.
East Cambridgeshire GPs urge eligible patients to get COVID-19 vaccines
Anyone aged 45 or over is now eligible to have their vaccine, but GPs in East Cambridgeshire are urging people with cancer, severe mental illness (such as schizophrenia and bipolar disorder), dementia or learning disabilities in particular to come forward to book their appointment, if they haven’t already.
Dr Anthony Gunstone, a GP at Staploe Medical Centre in Soham, said: “The COVID-19 vaccine is safe and effective and gives you the best possible protection against coronavirus. So if you’re eligible, make today the day you book yourself in for your life-saving jab.”
Local residents can call their usual GP practice to book an appointment for their COVID-19 vaccination and anyone in the following groups is now eligible:
- People at high risk of getting seriously ill from coronavirus (clinically extremely vulnerable) and their household.
- Anyone with other conditions that put them at higher risk such as diabetes or chronic kidney disease
- Anyone with a learning disability
- People who live and work in care homes
- Frontline health and social care workers
- Anyone aged over 45
To find out more about who is eligible to have their vaccine now, visit the NHS.uk website.
GP practices in Ely and the surrounding areas were the first to start vaccinating patients at GP surgeries when they started in December 2020. They have since administered 44,000 vaccines to local people and want to ensure that everyone who is eligible comes forward to take up the offer.
We have had to review our processing time.
Please allow 3 working days (excluding Bank Holidays) when requesting your repeat medication.
Please contact us via askmyGP if you foresee any problems.
We do apologise for the inconvenience this may cause.
