Latest Covid-Vaccine News
The Covid-19 vaccination programme has begun. When it is your turn to be vaccinated, the NHS will contact you. Please do not contact the NHS.
In Nottingham and Nottinghamshire, a few different health and care organisations including hospitals, GP practices, care homes and others are working together on the Covid-19 vaccination programme. This means when it is your turn to be vaccinated, this may not be at your GP practice. You will be told where to go for your appointment and how to book.
In line with expert guidance, the first priority for vaccination is care homes residents and staff, people over the age of 80 and frontline health and care workers.
We understand a lot of people want to be vaccinated and would like to reassure you this will happen. Please be patient and wait to be contacted.

- please don’t contact the NHS to seek a vaccine, we will contact you;
- when we do contact you, please attend your booked appointments;
- and please continue to follow all the guidance to control the virus and save lives.

CORONAVIRUS ISOLATION LETTER
If you want an isolation letter please access the Coronavirus link (yellow heading) which you saw when you first went onto this website. GPs are not required to issue sick notes for self-isolators. There is a link on that first page to 'isolation notes' - you can use this to produce a document for your work. They should accept this as this government policy.
CORONAVIRUS LETTER for VULNERABLE GROUPS
You should be written to by the NHS if you fall into the particularly high vulnerable group category.
