Surrey Heath PCN Launched the Vaccination programme in December 2020 and has been a huge success since its implementation.
The vaccination programme started at Heatherside Surgery and moved to Lakeside Country Club in January 2021.
The success of the vaccination programme would not be as great as it has been without the wonderful team of volunteers supporting the clinic. They work in all weathers to ensure the patients are safe on arrival and know exactly where to go to make the experience as smooth as possible.
We are continuing to work in-line with the government guidance to vaccinate the population of Surrey Heath, and here is some advice ahead of attending your appointment:
Set a reminder. Don’t miss your jab
As soon as you get your appointment confirmation set a reminder on your phone so you don’t forget. If you do forget, we will ring you, to remind you. Remember it’s crucial that we make the best use of every dose of vaccine so that we can protect as many people as possible, as soon as possible.
What to expect: come prepared
You may be asked to wait outside Lakeside Vaccination Centre if it is busy. If the weather is hot, remember to bring sunglasses, a hat, cap or head covering, some sunscreen to avoid burning and a water bottle to prevent dehydration. We will try to get you through the vaccination process and into the centre as quickly as possible, but if there is a delay, we want you to be a comfortable as possible while you wait.
Here to help
Please remember to arrive at the vaccination centre fit and ready to be vaccinated. It is important to have had a drink and food before being vaccinated to reduce the chance of feeling faint. If you are in any way worried about being vaccinated, speak to our reception staff or our volunteers. We will be on hand to support you through the process.
