COVID-19 vaccine

Latest vaccination information

Salford’s COVID-19 vaccination programme, part of the biggest mass vaccination programme in the history of the NHS, is underway.

Over the coming weeks and months residents of all ages will be offered the vaccine.

To ease pressure on the NHS at this busy time, and to ensure the process runs as smoothly as possible, please do not to call your GP practice. Rest assured you will be called directly when it is your turn to come for the vaccine. And you will be told when you can go and book an online appointment.

A few key points

  • All COVID-19 vaccines require two doses. It is vital, you return and keep your second appointment when invited.
  • The callers booking vaccinations will not ask for any other personal details other than asking you to confirm your name. They certainly will not ask for any money. Sadly, we have already been alerted to possible phone scams with callers asking for payment for access to vaccinations.
  • Once you have received the vaccination you must not drive for 15 minutes afterwards. You will need to remain in clinic until that time has elapsed.

It is important that you attend your vaccination appointment. But if for any reason you can’t, let us know as soon as possible so your slot can be offered to another resident.

The vaccine is safe and has gone through many months of testing before reaching this stage.
