Welcome the section of our website where you can find all of the information you need to plan and book for your Covid vaccination.
Who is currently able to book for a Covid-19 vaccination?
Any registered patient aged 80+ years who can travel to our vaccination site at Woodhouse Medical Centre, Cambridge Road, LS6 2SF.
Anyone who works at a care home looked after by Allerton Medical Centre including Westfield Medical Centre, St Martin’s Practice, Chapeltown Family Surgery or Woodhouse Medical Practice (we have contacted all local care homes directly)
We are also contacting all patients aged 75-79 years. Appointments will be extended to this age group if there is enough vaccine available, so in the first instance these patients will be placed on stand-by. They may be asked to attend at short notice. If you are aged 75-79 and you live with someone aged 80+ who is booking their vaccine appointment now, then you can both book now and attend together.
IMPORTANT UPDATE (31 December 2020):
Vaccine clinic date changes
NHS England has notified us of a short delay in the delivery date for our Pfizer covid vaccines which will now arrive on Friday 8 January. This means our clinic dates have had to change, as set out below. We are sorry for any inconvenience caused: please understand this is entirely outside our control. NHS England is working at an unprecedented rate to supply vaccines, along with all the necessary support equipment.
Change in time period between first and second vaccine dose
The Pfizer vaccine requires two doses. Today we were informed that we should book the 2nd dose appointment around 12 weeks after the 1st dose appointment. This is a change: previously we were booking the 2nd dose just 3 weeks after the 1st dose appointment. This is why the 2nd dose appointments set out below have been moved on by more than just a few days.
If you have any queries about your appointment date or time, please call us and press 0 when you hear the recorded message to be transferred to the booking office.
Allerton & Westfield Medical Centres
All appointment times stay the same, unless you are contacted directly by phone. It is only the date that has changed: as set out below. There is no change to the venue which remains as Woodhouse Medical Practice, Cambridge Rd, Leeds LS6 2SF.
