NHS Covid Vaccinations
Kenilworth & Warwick PCN COVID-19 Vaccination Programme
Our Practice is part of the Kenilworth and Warwick Primary Care Network, which also includes Abbey Medical Centre, Chase Meadow Medical Centre, Avonside Health Centre and Priory Medical Centre. Together we are coordinating the Covid-19 Vaccination programme for patients within our network. Vaccinations will be given at one central site and the programme will commence on Tuesday 15th December 2020. Care home residents and housebound patients will be contacted separately by Coventry & Warwickshire Partnership Trust to arrange their vaccinations.
Two vaccinations are given, and therefore two appointments will be booked 21 days apart for the first and second dose. It is important that both appointments are attended at the same vaccination centre.
It is advised that you do not drive for 15 minutes after receiving your vaccination. Please bear this in mind when booking your appointment and allow plenty of time.
Who will receive the Covid-19 Vaccination?
Covid-19 vaccinations will be administered to the below cohorts in the order that the cohorts are listed below. We are inviting patients based on the national guidance (determined by the Joint Committee for Vaccinations & Immunisations). Please do not contact the Practice to book your Covid-19 Vaccination until you have received your invitation. It is planned that everyone over the age of 50 will be vaccinated in a 16-week period.
- All those aged 80 and over and Health and Social Care Workers
- All those aged 75 and over
- All those aged 70 and over
- All those aged 65 and over

Where is the vaccination site?
We will be running a joint vaccination clinic at The Warwickshire Golf Club, Leek Wootton, Warwickshire, CV35 7QT (not the hotel). Turn at the roundabout following signs for The Warwickshire then turn first left and follow the road (follow the signs / speak to the marshal on duty). You can only attend the site if you have a booked appointment or are driving someone to their appointment. If you arrive at the site without an appointment you will not be seen.
If you are unable to use stairs or walk far, please speak to a marshal when you arrive who will direct you to the appropriate entrance.
If you choose to, eligible groups can also book at one of the mass vaccination sites. Information regarding this will be circulated in national invitation letters.
I don’t have access to transport
If you require transport it may be possible to book this through the community transport service by calling 01789 262889 - only arrange transport if you have booked your appointments. Vaccinations will not be given to anyone arriving at the site without an appointment.
I am housebound, how do I get vaccinated?
If you are a care home resident or we already provide you with home-visits, you will be contacted by Coventry & Warwickshire Partnership Trust to arrange your vaccinations. If you are housebound please let us know so that Coventry & Warwickshire Partnership Trust can contact you.
