Message to Patients re Covid-19 Booster Programme
Message to our patients – update on the COVID-19 booster programme
Across Derby and Derbyshire, the NHS and its partners are working extremely hard to roll out the COVID-19 booster vaccination programme to our communities.
All adults are eligible from Monday 13th December, and you will be able to book via the National Booking System from Wednesday 15th December.
You can book your booster for 3 months from the date of second vaccine, and you can access the National Booking System to book the appointment from 2 months.
We are working at pace to increase the availability of appointments so that there are plenty of options for people on the National Booking System. Some local vaccination services may also contact patients directly.
New appointments are being added every day across our vaccination services. Further availability will come online from Wednesday 15th December.
We will be working with all of our sites to take further steps to increase what they can offer again, including opening later and on more days.
All of these appointments will be added to the National Booking System and so we encourage everyone who is aged 18 and over, is yet to have their booster and who is approaching 3 months from your second vaccine to use the National Booking System to
arrange your appointment when you are able to do so.
In terms of any planned appointments with Oakhill Medical Practice, there are no changes at the current time, and everyone should attend their planned appointments as normal. If we need to make any changes, we will contact you directly
Are you aged 18 or over? - still not received your 1st vaccination for covid-19!
If not then please call: 01246 299919
Proof of Vaccination For Those Aged 12 And Upwards
As of Monday 13th December, fully vaccinated patients aged 12 and upwards can request proof of vaccination via 119 or the internet and a paper copy will be posted which conforms to the EU standards for the EU covid pass. There will be a QR code printed for each vaccine and it will have a validity period of 30 days. The document may need to be ordered again if a foreign trip is planned after the date of expiry. If aged 16 or over, patients can get a digital pass via the NHS app as well. This route isn't open to 12–15-year-olds yet but a digital solution should be available in the new year we've heard today.

Covid Restriction Update – July 2021
Throughout the pandemic here at Oakhill we have strived to keep our patients and staff as safe as possible and we will continue to do so moving forward.
From the 19th July 2021 nothing will change at the surgery, we will still require you to wear a face covering, adhere to social distancing and use the hand sanitiser provided. Clinical staff will also still be wearing PPE (Personal Protective Equipment). This can be frustrating to some patients who maybe attending for routine appointments but other patients are sick and clinically vulnerable, so we need to take precautions to protect all patients.
As you are aware here at Oakhill we have never been 'shut' throughout the pandemic and continue to provide a service to our patients.
Thank you for your co-operation.
From all the partners at Oakhill.
Are you a Vulnerable Patient
