Welcome to Chatfield Health Care
For information about Covid-19 and the vaccination programme click here.
Thank you for all your enquiries about the Covid-19 vaccine. Chatfield Health Care is working together with other Battersea practices to manage and run the Battersea Covid-19 vaccination site at The Junction Health Centre. We started vaccinating our patients aged 80 and over from the afternoon of 8 January 2021.
Over 40 and not vaccinated?
The NHS has invited all our patients who are over 40 or Clinically Extremely Vulnerable (CEV) for a COVID-19 vaccination. If you are over 40 or in the CEV group and have not heard from us you can now book your vaccination. Please visit www.nhs.uk/covid-vaccination or ring 119 free. You no longer need a letter.
We are sure that you will appreciate that we are working very hard on this huge project, and we thank you for your patience.
The order of priority for each group in the population to be invited to receive the Covid-19 vaccine is as follows:
|Priority Level||Priority Group||Currently Vaccinating|
|1.||residents in a care home for older adults and their carers||Yes|
|2.||all those aged 80 years of age and over and frontline health and social care workers||Yes|
|3.||all those 75 years of age and over||Yes|
|4.||all Clinically Extremely Vulnerable individuals (all those on the national Shielded Patient List)||Yes|
|5.||all those 70 years of age and over ||Yes|
|6.||all those 65 years of age and over||Yes|
|7.||all those individuals aged 16 years to 64 years with underlying health conditions which put them at higher risk of serious disease and mortality||Yes|
|8.||all those 60 years of age and over||Yes|
|9.||all those 55 years of age and over||Yes|
|10.||all those 50 years of age and over||Yes|
|11.||all those 45 years of age and over||Yes|
|12.||all those 40 years of age and over||Yes|
Having a vaccine is the best way to protect you from coronavirus and will save thousands of lives.
You will be able to book an appointment at a vaccination centre or community pharmacy.
We are continuing to follow the official advice and vaccinating those most at risk first, and those who work closest with them.
There are now more than 200 sites in London providing this lifesaving vaccination, and more are going live all the time.
We will keep our website updated as we receive more details from NHS England / Public Health England. You can also get information about the COVID-19 Vaccination programme online at www.nhs.uk/covidvaccination
