At this time and in line with guidance issued by the Government’s Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI), Salford’s NHS COVID-19 Vaccination Service are currently issuing invitations to the following people to come and receive their COVID vaccine:
If you are an eligible patient who is registered with a Salford GP practice, you can use this booking system to make your appointment. If you haven’t already, you should shortly expect to receive a personal invite via text message, by letter or by a telephone call asking you to proceed with your booking. However, as long as you’re eligible you do not need to wait for this to arrive, you can still make your online booking through this portal now.
The COVID-19 vaccination is not recommended for women who are pregnant.
People who are suffering from a fever-type illness or COVID symptoms should also postpone having the vaccine until they have recovered.
Following extensive trials, the first safe and effective vaccine for COVID-19 was approved by regulators in mid December 2020. The roll-out of the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine is being managed via a limited number of hospital and Primary Care led hubs.
In late December 2020, the Government’s Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) also approved the roll-out of the Oxford Astra Zeneca vaccine, which is also being made available within the Primary Care led hubs.
In Salford our first Primary Care led hubs to open are at Clarendon Leisure Centre, Eccles Leisure centre and Irlam Leisure Centre. Limited parking is available at these sites and marshals will be on hand to direct you.
When the time is right, people will receive an invitation to book an appointment for the vaccine. For most people this will be a letter or text message from the service, alternatively some people may receive a telephone invitation from our team.
Please Do Not contact your GP practice to get an appointment.
Further information on the vaccine is available at:
