Safecare Network have been delivering COVID vaccinations as part of the NHS Mass Vaccination Programme at The Baths Hall Theatre in Scunthorpe since the 19 March 2021.
Safecare is a GP Federation where all 19 general practices across North Lincolnshire are all members of our federation. We deliver services at scale and on behalf of the member practices across North Lincolnshire.
Safecare’s Mass Vaccination Programme has been a huge success to date however as we start to offer vaccinations to the younger ages, we are keen to make the process even simpler.
We can accept patients from within a 45 mile radius, Scunthorpe is centrally situated with easy access from Hull, East Riding of Yorkshire, Doncaster and Sheffield. Therefore, with immediate effect we are now accepting Walk In’s as follows:
COVID Vaccinations Available The Baths Hall Theatre, Scunthorpe
Ages 23 and Over
WALK IN – NO APPOINTMENT NECESSARY
(Although you can still book via the NHS National Booking System OR call 119)
9am – 5pm 7 Days
Please Note, the age will drop to 18 and over very shortly so please keep your eye on this
Covid-19 Booster Vaccination.
Please do not contact the surgery to book a Covid-19 Booster Vaccination. We are awaiting further guidance and will be in touch when we are advised to do so in the usual way.
Please be aware of scammers contacting people under the pretence of booking a booster and then asking more questions around life insurance, personal details. You would not be contacted in this way by the surgery so please do not give out any of your information.
Covid-19 Vaccination Status
From 17 May 2021, people in England who have been fully vaccinated against COVID-19 can demonstrate their vaccination status for international travel. A full course is currently two doses of any approved vaccine. Vaccine status will be available from:
- the NHS App which you can download from app stores
It may take more than a week for your identity to be checked and verified so you can use this service.
If you cannot access this online service, and you have had 2 vaccines, you can request a paper letter from the NHS by calling 119. Only call 119 if you are due to travel abroad in the near future and have had your second dose more than 5 working days ago. It may take 7 working days for the letter to arrive.
This practice is not able to provide you with a letter that shows your COVID-19 vaccination status.
When you're planning your travel, check the latest information on demonstrating your COVID-19 status when travelling abroad on the gov.uk website. Make sure there is time to get proof of your vaccination status before you leave.
Community vaccinations are being delivered by Primary Care Networks (PCNs), of which there are four across North Lincolnshire. Due to logistical challenges and in line with requests from NHS England, each network is currently administering vaccinations all from one designated location to cover their population.
The order in which patients will be prioritised for the vaccinations has been determined by the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI). This includes those deemed to be at the greatest risk from COVID-19, such as individuals over 80, care home staff and care home residents. However, this will take time and more and more people will be contacted over the coming days and weeks. We are kindly asking people to be patient until they are contacted.
NHS staff are doing an incredible job to deliver what it is the largest vaccination programme in our history, at the same time as continuing to be there for everyone who needs care. Our staff are well-used to delivering thousands of vaccines a year and are moving as quickly as possible to roll out this vaccine to those who need it as we take delivery locally, but it’s important that we remember this will be a marathon, not a sprint.
The public have an important part to play and can help in the following ways:
- please don’t contact the NHS to seek a vaccine, we will contact you;
- when we do contact you, please attend your booked appointments on time and not early;
- please continue to follow all the guidance to control the virus and save lives.
I hope you find this information helpful and that you are able to support us by encouraging everyone to be as patient as possible whilst we await further deliveries from national supplies; practices do not know when they will receive their next delivery and are unable to plan or book clinics in advance. We particularly appreciate support in encouraging patients to avoid contacting our GP practices to seek a vaccine as this can make it difficult for other patients to get through to book their health care appointments.
