  • King’s Lynn Covid Vaccination Centre Closed on Sunday 1st May

    by Sarah Turner | Apr 27, 2022

    Our large-scale Covid vaccination centre at Shakespeare Barn, King's Lynn Arts Centre will be closed on Sunday 1st May as runners gather in the town to take part in the Grand East Anglia Run (GEAR) 10K.

    The centre will be open every other day for both walk-ins and booked appointments to enable all those eligible to access their vital vaccination or booster jabs.

    Earlier this month, we announced that the following recently eligible groups, who could already book appointments via the National Booking Service or by ringing 119 (free of charge), could also access their jabs on a walk-in basis:

    • People who are 75 and older, and those aged 12 years and older who are severely immunosuppressed are eligible for a top-up booster appointment six months after their last dose as part of the national Spring Booster programme. 
    • Children aged 5-11 who are not in at-risk groups are also now eligible for their first Covid vaccine with a second dose available 12 weeks’ later.

    Dr David Vickers, Medical Director, Cambridgeshire Community Services NHS Trust, said:

    “We know vaccines give significant protection against severe illness from Covid-19, so I strongly urge anyone who’s eligible to come forward.

    “Our vaccination teams continue to do an amazing job delivering the largest vaccination programme in NHS history and we’d like to thank our dedicated staff and volunteers for working over the holiday period to enable many more people to get vaccinated.

    “If you haven’t yet had your first, second or (if you were immunosuppressed at the time you had these) third dose of the vaccine, or any other booster, it’s never too late - you can simply walk-in to a local vaccination centre or book an appointment online via the National Booking Service.”

    End

    Editors’ notes:

    Those who have recently recovered from Covid should still come forward for their vaccination as having had the virus does not give the same levels of protection. Anyone over 18 who has had Covid will need to wait four weeks before having any dose of the vaccine, or 12 weeks for those aged 5 to 17.

    Which people aged 12 and over are in the immunosuppressed category?

    People aged 12 and over who are immunosuppressed include those who have had or have:

    • A blood cancer (such as leukaemia or lymphoma)
    • A weakened immune system due to a treatment (such as steroid medicine, biological therapy, chemotherapy or radiotherapy)
    • An organ or bone marrow transplant
    • A condition that means you have a very high risk of getting infections
    • A condition or treatment your specialist advises makes you eligible for an additional dose

    Notes on vaccinations for 5-11-year-olds

    All 5-11-year-olds will be offered two 10 microgram doses of the Pfizer vaccine; a third of the amount used for adult vaccinations.

    Parents and guardians are asked to attend the vaccination centre with their children and are asked to read the patient information available.

    Children aged 5-11 who are in a clinical risk group or who live with someone who is immunosuppressed can continue to access their first dose of the covid vaccine on a walk-in basis in Norfolk and Waveney. Eligible children include those with diabetes, immunosuppression, learning disabilities, and other conditions as outlined by the UK Health Security Agency in the Green Book.  Eligible children in this cohort will get a second dose eight weeks after their first dose and can’t receive any vaccination until four weeks after a positive test for coronavirus.

    Norfolk large-scale vaccination centres

    Large-scale vaccination centres are open seven days a week 8.30 am to 4.00 pm and some late evenings at the following locations:

    • Paddock Road Surgery, Paddock Road, Harleston IP20 9AT

  • Julian the jabbing lion looks forward to welcoming 5-11-year-olds for their Covid-19 vaccinations from Monday 4 April

    by Sarah Turner | Mar 31, 2022

    An unexpected visitor has welcomed the news that from Saturday 2 April, 5-11-year-olds will be able to book appointments for their Covid-19 vaccination at large-scale vaccination centres across Cambridgeshire, Peterborough and Norfolk. Julian and Emily 1

    Julian the jabbing lion (AKA Andrew Lamb, Head of Clinical Operations for the large-scale vaccination centres run by Cambridgeshire Community Services NHS Trust) roared:

    “Book your appointment – come along for your jab – and have fun while you’re here!  

    “You can join in with I-spy and spot the difference games, and colour in a unique image created by world renowned illustrator Sir Quentin Blake featuring himself and local author Dr Peter Rowan (one of our fantastic vaccinators). You’ll also receive a certificate and a sticker, and you can take a photo using our selfie-frames to show your mates how brave you’ve been.  I’ll be visiting lots of our centres on different days so come and say hi if you see me!”

    Emily, Andrew’s 8-year-old daughter, is also playing a starring role as the voice of the lead character in an animated cartoon explaining what children can expect to happen when they come for their jab. Emily said:

    “It was great fun being the voice of ‘cartoon’ Emily and I hope it helps other children get ready to have their vaccine and talk to their mum or dad, or the kind people at the vaccine centres, about any questions they have.” 

    You can view the animation here: https://vimeo.com/671102692/aaca5f4378

    Dr David Vickers, Medical Director, Cambridgeshire Community Services NHS Trust, added:

    “As a paediatrician, I welcome the expansion of the vaccination programme to younger children.  To date, 5-11-year-olds in at risk categories have been able to access a vaccination and can continue to do so.  From 4 April, all 5-11-year-olds can do the same.  We know vaccines give significant protection against severe illness from covid, so it is important that our youngest and most at-risk get protected.

    “As the fastest and most successful vaccination programme in NHS history continues, parents and guardians of children aged 5-11 can book their child’s first appointment via the National Booking Service at www.nhs.uk/covid-vaccine, with a second dose available 12 weeks later. Vaccinations for 5-11-year-olds not in at risk groups are not available on a walk-in basis.”

    Cath Byford, Chief Nurse at NHS Norfolk and Waveney Clinical Commissioning Group, said:

    “It’s fantastic to see fun initiatives popping up across Norfolk and Waveney to help children and young people come forward for these important vaccinations. Getting vaccinated against Covid-19 is the best thing you, and those in your family, can do to protect one another from the virus which can make some people very poorly. Thank you to everyone who has been jabbed and for bringing youngsters to get protected too.”

    The Trust is grateful to Ian Greenfield, Owner of Production Bureau in Swardeston, Norwich for kindly loaning our vaccination team the lion costume and donating 5000 ‘Brave as a lion’ stickers. 

    Commenting on this initiative, Ian Greenfield, said: Ian Greenfield with Julian Selfie Frame

    “We’re proud to support the roll out of the vaccination programme locally and hope that Julian the Lion provides some fun distraction for the children during their visit and that they wear their stickers with pride.”

    Editors’ notes:

    Dr Peter Rowan is the author of, amongst many publications, “Ask Doctor Pete” (also published under the title "Can You get Warts from Touching Toads”) which was illustrated by Sir Quentin Blake. Quentin kindly donated two illustrations to the local vaccination centres for display and or colouring in by local children. 

    Quentin Blake

    • Text in first illustration reads: “This is me, Quentin Blake.I got vaccinated straightaway and now I’m unstoppable and I’m not giving anything unpleasant to my friends”.
    • Text in second illustration reads: “Written by Doctor Peter Rowan who’s also good at vaccinating people and illustrated by Quentin Blake who is also good at getting vaccinated”.

    Notes on vaccinations for 5-11-year-olds

    All 5-11-year-olds will be offered two 10 microgram doses of the Pfizer vaccine; a third of the amount used for adult vaccinations.

    Parents and guardians are asked to attend the vaccination centre with their children and are asked to read the patient information available.

    Children aged 5-11 who are in a clinical risk group or who live with someone who is immunosuppressed can continue to access their first dose of the covid vaccine on a walk-in basis or via a booked appointment.  Eligible children include those with diabetes, immunosuppression, learning disabilities, and other conditions as outlined by the UK Health Security Agency in the Green Book.  Eligible children in this cohort will get a second dose eight weeks after their first dose and can’t receive any vaccination until four weeks after a positive test for coronavirus.

  • Spring Covid-19 Booster programme to provide additional protection for older residents and the severely immunosuppressed

    by Karen Mason | Mar 20, 2022

    People who are 75 and older, and those aged 12 years and older who are severely immunosuppressed, will be able to book a top-up booster appointment six months after their last dose as part of the national Spring Booster programme.

    Dr David Vickers, medical director, Cambridgeshire Community Services NHS Trust (which runs the large scale vaccination centres) said:

    “People in these groups are at higher risk of developing severe COVID-19 so we’re encouraging them to have a Spring Booster six months after their last dose to increase their protection.

    “Eligible people will be contacted by the NHS to invite them to book an appointment for their Spring Booster in the coming weeks. We’re asking people to please wait to be contacted and not to walk-in to our vaccination centres for their Spring booster as staff will not be able to vaccinate them. Those who are eligible because they are immunosuppressed will need to bring a letter from a GP or their hospital specialist confirming their eligibility to their vaccine appointment.”

    Once contacted, eligible people can book their Spring boosters via the National Booking Service or by ringing 119 (free of charge).

    Dr Gary Howsam, Chair of the Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Clinical Commissioning Group added:

    “We know vaccines give significant protection against severe illness from COVID-19 and our vaccination teams continue to do an amazing job delivering the largest vaccination programme in NHS history.

    “Like the rest of the country, we are unfortunately seeing COVID-19 cases rising across Cambridgeshire and Peterborough. I strongly urge anyone who is eligible to book this top-up booster when they are contacted. 

    “And it’s never too late for those who haven’t yet had their first, second or (if you were immunosuppressed at the time you had these) a third dose of the vaccine, or any other non-Spring booster.  For these, simply walk-in to a local vaccination centre or book online via the National Booking Service.

    “Whilst no longer a legal requirement, we also need people to continue to help reduce the spread of the virus by wearing face coverings, washing hands for 20 seconds with warm, soapy water and avoiding crowded spaces.”

    Anyone who has received a COVID-19 vaccine abroad is encouraged to register that vaccination with the NHS so that it can be added to their NHS vaccine record and COVID-19 Pass. Overseas vaccination validation appointments can be booked through the Overseas Vaccination Validation Service on the NHS website.

    Editors notes

    Those who have recently recovered from COVID should still come forward for their vaccination, as having had the virus does not give the same levels of protection.  Anyone over 18 who has had COVID will need to wait four weeks before having any dose of the vaccine, or 12 weeks for those aged 12 to 17.

    Those aged 12 and over who are immunosuppressed includes people who have had or have:

    • A blood cancer (such as leukaemia or lymphoma)
    • A weakened immune system due to a treatment (such as steroid medicine, biological therapy, chemotherapy or radiotherapy)
    • An organ or bone marrow transplant
    • A condition that means you have a very high risk of getting infections
    • A condition or treatment your specialist advises makes you eligible for an additional dose

  • NHS staff, patients and visitors must continue to wear face coverings in healthcare settings

    by Sarah Turner | Feb 25, 2022

    All remaining Covid-related legal restrictions in England have now been removed as part of the Prime Minister's plan for Living with Covid-19, however due to the higher risk nature of health and social care settings, NHS guidance in healthcare settings has not changed.

    NHS staff, patients and visitors must continue to wear face coverings in all healthcare settings, unless exempt, and observe social distancing.

    If you arrive at one of our community settings without a face covering, you will be offered a surgical mask and if exempt, you will be offered a face shield as an alternative.

    Please help us to reduce the risk of infection for our staff and patients, particularly those who may be more vulnerable, by following this guidance. Thank you.

  • All eligible groups able to walk-in at large scale vaccination centres from 24 January 2022

    by Karen Mason | Jan 21, 2022

    Anyone in an eligible group can walk in (or book if preferred) for their vital Covid-19 vaccination or booster jab from Monday 24 January 2022 at daily walk-in clinics as the fastest and most successful vaccination programme in NHS history continues. 

    Dr David Vickers, medical director, Cambridgeshire Community Services NHS Trust, which delivers the large-scale vaccination centres across Cambridgeshire and Peterborough said:

    “Previously 12-15 year olds who are not in an at risk group and need their second dose have only been able to book an appointment for these.  From Monday 24 January, they can join all other eligible cohorts and access their second dose by walking-in to our large scale vaccination centres.

    “The only exception to this is our vaccination centre at Chesterton Indoor Bowls Club which, due to restricted parking, does not offer walk-in facilities.

    “Eligible people can also choose to book an appointment, if preferred, via the National Booking Service at www.nhs.uk/covidvaccine

    Dr Gary Howsam, Chair of the Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Clinical Commissioning Group, said:

    “Getting the vaccine is the single most important step we can take to protect ourselves, our families and our communities against Covid-19. 

    “We strongly encourage people who are eligible to come forward for their booster and it’s never too late to have your first or second dose either.  No appointments needed – you can simply drop-in.  The evidence is clear. Not getting vaccinated against Covid puts you at greater risk of serious illness and death.

    “Vaccines are the best way to protect yourselves and your loved ones and reducing covid-related hospital admissions will help the NHS cope better during the winter months and reduce disruption to routine and planned care.”

    Further information on walk-in vaccination services is available at www.thevaccinators.co.uk

    End

    Editors notes:

    Recent data from the UK Health Security Agency (UKHSA) showed that two doses of the vaccine are not enough to stop people becoming unwell from Omicron, but a booster significantly increases protection against the variant.

    In line with Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) guidance, the NHS cannot vaccinate 16 and 17-year-olds within 12 weeks (84 days) of a positive Covid-19 test.

    Those aged 16 and 17 and considered at high risk from Covid-19 must wait four weeks (28 days) from the date of a positive Covid-19 test before getting any dose of the vaccine.
