Covid 19 Boosters
The NHS in Lincolnshire is asking everyone aged over 18 who is eligible to please come forward and get their Covid-19 booster now - don't delay! Omicron is a real threat to all of us and getting boosted is the best way to protect you and your family. We’re also urging people who’ve only had one vaccination so far, or possibly none at all, to come forward as quickly as possible. Visit this website or call 119 to find out how.
If you had your covid vaccinations with us at the surgery or at Springfields, please contact us for your booster when you pass 90 days after your 2nd vaccination. We currently have no further plans for clinics, although we may still have vaccines available.
Please keep an eye on this website for further dates.
If you have had your vaccinations done at one of the other vaccination centres, we are asking patients to get their booster done via those centres again. Contact the vaccination centre to arrange your booster. When arranging your booster, please confirm it is at least 90 days after your second vaccination.

Support Your Surgery
"GPs and their teams have faced an extremely challenging time during the COVID-19 pandemic. The restrictions have meant that face-to-face contact with patients has been limited in order to keep practice staff and patients safe.
The Support Your Surgery campaign provides GP practices with the tools to both manage expectations and to provide patients with the reality of issues facing general practice.
Alongside this, we have launched a petition calling on the UK Government to provide the urgent resourcing needed to increase the number of GPs in England." - British Medical Association, BMA
Suspicious Patient Access Emails
There have been reports from both Patient Access users and people who have never registered for the service, that they have received Covid passport emails purporting to be from Patient Access. Patient Access has shared the following guidance:
"We advise users of Patient Access to check the name and email address of the sender, all emails from Patient Access will come via an email address that ends in @patientaccess.com. we advise users never to click on any log-in links that you receive via email but to visit the site via the address bar of your browser instead so that you know you are on the genuine Patient Access log-in page. You can find more information and guifance on our information security page here."
Proof of Covid-19 Vaccination
Patients who have had both Covid-19 vaccine doses will be able to demonstrate their Covid-19 vaccination status via the NHS App or call 119.
Please use one of these options as we are unable to provide proof of vaccination ourselves.
