Coronavirus Vaccination Programme

We started our Coronavirus Vaccination Programme on Friday 15th January, and have delivered vaccines to patients over 80 years old, and residents and staff in care homes across Ellesmere Port.

This is an appointment only service. Please do not turn up without an appointment, you will be turned away.

Our 6 GP Practices in Ellesmere Port are working together to deliver the vaccine from Ellesmere Port Civic Hall.

We understand that people are anxious to receive a COVID-19 vaccine as soon as possible. However, please don’t contact your GP practice, local hospital or council to seek a COVID-19 vaccine appointment – appointments cannot be made in this way. Your practice will contact you to invite you to the vaccination clinic when it is the right time. If you’re eligible for a vaccine, but are yet to be contacted, please remain patient. You will not be missed. On our first day, we were able to deliver 1024 vaccinations on site, and hundreds more to care homes.

You may have received a letter from NHS Central to book a vaccine online or via 119, but this is OPTIONAL. As a patient of a One Ellesmere Port PCN Practice, your closest vaccination centre is Ellesmere Port Civic Hall, and practices are in the process of inviting patients to the numerous clinics each week.

This is just the beginning of the largest vaccination programme the country has ever seen and we will make sure that the people who need it most (and those that care for them) are able to access the vaccine in a safe way with the least delay.

When you are invited for a vaccine, please act on your invite and make sure you attend appointments when you arrange them.

Please also continue to wear a face covering and follow social distancing and hand hygiene guidance as, until a vaccine has been fully rolled out, this is the most effective way to reduce transmission of the virus and help save lives.

Parking is free in the Car Park at the front of the Civic Hall for patients with appointments.

 

Please read this Patient Information Leaflet for instructions for visiting the site.

There is a tented area infront of the Civic Hall to shield patients if the queue extends outdoors, but the vaccinations take place inside.  Below is a video of our vaccination site:
