COVID-19 Vaccination Programme

We are currently vaccinating care home residents, front line health and social care workers and patients 67 and over. There is no need to call us, we will call you when we have a vaccine for you. Please go to https://www.traffordccg.nhs.uk/Your-Health/Coronavirus.aspx for more information on the program.

If you have had a letter inviting you to attend the Etihad stadium but have already received your first dose of the vaccine at a Trafford site there is no further action needed. Please do not book another appointment as indicated in the letter you have received.

If you have a booked appointment at a Trafford site in the coming week, again there is no further action needed and please do not book another appointment. Please ensure where possible you attend this appointment and decline the appointment at the Etihad Stadium. Whilst it is the patient’s choice to decide where they are vaccinated, we would recommend that you continue to wait for us to contact you.

If you have an enquiry about the COVID vaccination, you can now leave a message with the new COVID Vaccinations Hotline (0161 912 1299). The hotline will be monitored by NHS Trafford CCG colleagues who will aim to answer all enquiries within 24 hours.

COVID VACCINATION CARDS –  UPDATE 28/4/21

Transport Secretary Grant Shapps confirmed on 28/4/21 that the NHS App will be used as a ‘Covid passport/digital health certificate’ to prove whether people have had a COVID vaccination, or tested negative for Coronavirus, before travelling abroad.

We continue to receive a number of enquiries from patients regarding the importance of the COVID-19 vaccination card as a ‘Covid passport’ with patients contacting us regarding misplaced/lost cards and concerns that the card may be important for travel.

We would like to reassure all our patients the COVID-19 vaccination cards do not contain secure, personal information relating to the individual patient: quite simply anyone could write/amend the details. The card only contains space for the vaccine name, batch and date. The card does not contain secure, personal, patient details. If patients have been vaccinated, all details are contained on their medical records.

You may wish to download the NHS App which enables you to access your digital medical record – including details of immunisations such as the Covid-19 vaccination – as well as offering health advice and allowing you to order repeat prescriptions. Alternatively, if you have registered for Patient Access, you will also be able to view your medical records.

Any patient still wishing to receive a COVID-19 vaccination card when they attend their vaccine appointment will be given one. For those who may have lost a card, or did not receive one at their appointment, please be assured that all details of your immunisations are contained on your personal, medical records.
