Covid-19 Advice/Info

COVID-19 Vaccination Program

We are pleased to announce that we are currently in the process of booking COVID-19 Vaccinations – South West London has now delivered over a whopping 280,000 Vaccinations!

Hampton Hill Medical Centre will be responsible for inviting registered eligible patients to attend a Vaccination Clinic, under guidance from Public Health England and NHS England.

We have been allocated vaccinations routinely, and are booking eligible patients when we have stock. Please DO NOT call the Practice.

NOTE: We are unable to offer patients preference of an appointment time, you will be allocated an appointment slot on a first come first serve basis. You will only be given an appointment for the first dose – you will be contacted again within 12 weeks to book your second dose (provided this time-frame doesn’t change according to NHS England.).

* Vaccine supply is limited and we do not yet know when we will receive further deliveries *

Side Effects

What are the side effects?
Like all medicines, vaccines can cause side effects. Most of these are mild and short term, and not everyone gets them. Even if you do have symptoms after the first dose, you still need to have the second dose.

Although you may get some protection from the first dose, having the second dose will give you the best protection against the virus.

Very common side effects include:
• having a painful, heavy feeling and tenderness in the arm where you had your injection. This tends to be worst around 1-2 days after the vaccine.
• feeling tired
• headache
• general aches, or mild flu-like symptoms

Although feeling feverish is not uncommon for two to three days, a high temperature is unusual and may indicate you have COVID-19 or another infection.

An uncommon side effect is swelling of the glands. You can rest and take the normal dose of paracetamol (follow the advice in the packaging) to help make you feel better.

These symptoms normally last less than a week. If your symptoms seem to get worse or if you are concerned, contact the Surgery. If you do seek advice from a doctor or nurse, make sure you tell them about your vaccination so that they can assess you properly.

You can also report suspected side effects of vaccines and medicines through the Yellow Card scheme.
You can do this online by visiting the Coronavirus Yellow Card or by downloading the Yellow Card app.
