Claremont Medical Practice COVID-19 Vaccination Programme
Since early December we have be working in collaboration with GP practices in East Devon to deliver the COVID-19 vaccination to our patients. The vaccination centre is based at Exmouth Tennis centre as it is the safest and most convenient place to be able to offer this service to the patients of Exmouth.
We are inviting patients from our 3 surgeries in a set order according to the eligibility criteria advised by the Government. We are working as quickly as possible to get as many of our patients protected as soon as we can.
We will contact you directly when it is your turn and please be assured that we will make every effort to get in contact to ensure that you get booked in.
You may receive a letter from the government led national NHS COVID-19 Vaccination Booking Service. They are also contacting eligible patients to attend a regional vaccination centre or a local pharmacy. If you receive this invite first and would like book through them that is absolutely fine and please be assured that we will get an update that you have been vaccinated. You can of course choose to wait and receive your vaccination through the practice and will be contacted with appointment details for your vaccination at the Tennis Centre in Exmouth.
Please do not contact the surgery to ask where you are on the list. Our service is very busy at present and please be assured that we will get to you as soon as we can. If you feel that you may have been missed your vaccine or have a significant concern regarding receiving the vaccine once you have been invited then of course please do contact the surgery to discuss your concerns with a professional.
Sadly there have been reports in the media of COVID vaccination scams. Please be assured that we will never ask for a payment, or bank details for the vaccination, if you have been asked for this information then you should end the interaction and report it immediately.
Please remember to stay safe and practice social distancing, regular hand washing and to wear a mask to help protect yourself and others from COVID-19.
