PRIMARY COURSE (1st/2nd/3rd/4th/booster)
Patients with low immune systems at the time of their 1st/2nd doses as per the JCVI Green Book (click here) should have a ‘Third Primary Dose’ to be given 56 days after the second dose. These patients will be due a ‘booster‘ or ‘4th dose‘ after a further 3 months.
Under 18 year olds should wait 12 weeks after having Covid Infection before having a Covid vaccination (rather than 4 weeks)

From 17 May 2021, people in England who have been fully vaccinated against COVID-19 can demonstrate their vaccination status for international travel. A full course is currently two doses of the Moderna, AstraZeneca and Pfizer vaccine, or one dose of the Janssen single-dose vaccine. Vaccine status will be available through the NHS COVID Pass service from:
· the NHS App – see our online page for more information.
· the NHS website – click here
· 119 – by requesting a paper letter
You will need to register to use the online services, if you have not already. It may take more than a week for your identity to be checked and verified.
If you cannot access the online services, and you have had both doses of the vaccine, you can request a paper letter from the NHS by calling 119. Only call 119 if you are due to travel outside the UK in the near future and have had your second dose (or one dose of the Janssen single-dose vaccine) more than 5 working days ago. It may take up to 7 working days for the letter to arrive.
This practice is not able to provide you with a letter that shows your COVID-19 vaccination status. Please do not contact the practice about your COVID-19 vaccination status unless you have been advised to by the 119 service.
When you’re planning your travel, you should check the latest information on demonstrating your COVID-19 status when travelling abroad on the gov.uk website. Make sure there is enough time to get proof of your COVID-19 vaccination status before you are due to travel.
The Greenwood Surgery PPG members have organised a group of committed volunteers from across the PCN who have helped on a regular basis. They have done a truly fantastic job and we couldn’t have run our clinics without their support.
The Chelmsford Mayor made a visit to thank a small group of volunteers for all their hard work and dedication so far. When we are in a safer climate a larger gathering of all volunteers will be organised.
We just wanted to send a quick email to thank you, NHS staff and volunteers for the wonderful work you are doing regarding the Covid vaccination rollout. When we came this morning everyone was professional, friendly and courteous in what we are sure must be very difficult circumstances.
Please convey our thanks to everyone involved. You are all stars as far as we are concerned and we are truly grateful.
