Pharmacy staff: still not had your first C-19 vac?

Pharmacy staff: still not had your first C-19 vac?

February 24, 2021

Make this week the week you protect yourself and your patients.

Millions of people have had the first dose of their COVID-19 vaccine, including the majority of frontline health and social care workers, but to ensure no frontline workers who want one are left behind, the NHS has opened the National Booking Service to allow eligible staff to book directly at a Vaccination Centre or pharmacy-led site.

Using the National Booking Service is quick and simple. You can do it online at nhs.uk/CovidVaccination, or by calling 119 if you can’t access the internet.

You will be asked to self-certify that you are eligible when booking, and provide proof of your eligibility when you attend your appointment.

The vaccines being used are safe and highly effective at preventing serious illness. Getting vaccinated means protecting yourself so you can be there for your family, friends and patients.

By acting now and taking up the vaccine, you are also playing your part in how the whole country can return to normal life.

But it’s important to remember, in the meantime and even if you have had the vaccine, we all still need to follow all the guidelines to control the virus and save lives. That means following the infection prevention and control and testing measures in your workplace, and the general advice at work, at home and when you are out and about.
