Covid-19 Vaccine

  • If you are registered with a GP in Bury, you will be contacted directly by the CCG Central Team.
  • The Central Team will contact patients directly to book 2nd vaccinations. Please DO NOT contact your surgery.
  • If you live in Bury but are registered with a practice outside the borough you will be contacted by representatives from that local authority area.
  • The caller will identify themselves and say they are calling on behalf of your GP and they are getting in touch about booking an appointment for a Coronavirus vaccine.
  • The caller will then offer dates and times for you to attend clinic. They will also give the location of the site where you will receive it. This may not be your usual surgery.
  • The callers booking vaccinations will not ask for any other personal details other than asking you to confirm your name. They certainly will not ask for any money. Sadly, we have already been alerted to possible phone scams with callers asking for payment for access to vaccinations.
  • Once you have received the vaccination you must not drive for 15 minutes afterwards. You will need to remain in clinic until that time has elapsed.
