Coronavirus (COVID-19)

We are maintaining our Covid Safety Measures in Practice

Please where a face covering while attending the practice (unless you are exempt), sanitise your hands using the facilities at our front door and maintain social distancing in our waiting area.

Covid Certificates

GP Surgeries do not provide covid vaccination certificates for the purpose of travel or otherwise. If your vaccination was administered in the UK, you can view your record on the Covid Pass feature of the NHS App. Alternatively you can contact 119 to request a paper certificate. For more information please visit www.gov.uk/demonstrating-your-covid-19-status.

Documentation of vaccinations given abroad

If your vaccination was not administered by the NHS, you are not able to receive NHS certification at this time.

For vaccinations from abroad to be visible within the new Covid Pass feature of the NHS App or for the purpose of the paper certificates, they need to also be coded within the National Immunisations System (NIMS) on top of being recorded on your GP record. At the moment vaccines administered overseas cannot be recorded in the NHS England vaccine system (NIMS) so no vaccine certificate is currently available from the NHS. This issue is being worked on and an update is expected shortly.

Booking vaccinations via GP

GP Surgeries in Islington are only able to provide covid vaccinations for patients aged 50 and over, or those who are in a clinically high risk group. We also only have access to Pfizer vaccinations at present. If you are not in a clinically high risk group, over the age of 50, or if you require an alternative to Pfizer, please contact 119 to arrange your covid vaccination.

Early 2nd Doses

The current guideline for 2nd vaccination doses is 8 weeks. If you received your 1st dose via the national booking system, we have no control over arranging early 2nd dose appointments, regardless of medical issues.

Covid vaccination appointments

To protect yourself, your family, friends and everyone else, if you have been contacted by us or by the NHS to invite you for your Covid vaccination please make your appointment. Use the booking information and method indicated in the invitation.

Our doctors believe the Covid vaccines are safe and we are encouraging eligible patients to have your vaccination as soon as you are invited – please don’t delay.
