COVID-19 vaccinations for healthcare staff

In agreement with colleagues across the city, we have now closed the ROH Hospital vaccination Hub. Vaccination delivery will be focused through the other vaccination hubs that can sustain greater numbers.

How to book an appointment at a Hospital Hub

Staff will now be able to choose their most convenient public location via the NBS. The ITM hospital hub centre (at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital) will remain an option to health and social care workers only.

Route One:

The National Booking System now allows health and social care workers to book their vaccine using the national system; this will give staff a wider range of locations available to them to book. Please use following link:

https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/coronavirus-vaccination/book-coronavirus-vaccination/

When booking your first appointment on the National Booking System you will be required to also chose your second from a range of dates given to you.

Route Two:

There is still first appointment availability for health and social care workers at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital ITM, if people would rather attend that location. To book here, please use the following link:

https://my.drdoctor.co.uk/clinic/QEITM9 (open in google chrome).

This location is suitable for pregnant customers who have been reviewed and referred by their own obstetrician/gynaecologist

If attending the Queen Elizabeth Hospital, your second appointment will be made for you by the administrative staff on site when you attend for your first.

In order to book an appointment staff will need to provide:

  • Name
  • Date of birth
  • NHS number
  • Residential post code
  • Mobile telephone number (so that appointment date and time can be texted)

On the day of appointment, your staff will need to bring proof of ID and proof of employer. This can be an ID badge, payslip or letter.

Second dose: It is still the intention to provide all colleagues who had their first dose at ROH with the second dose here. We will share details with staff as soon as possible.

Important information for you

You will need to bring your ID badge (or similar) and NHS number with you. You will not be permitted into a vaccination hub without proof of employment. No one can receive a vaccine without their NHS number as it is required by the National Immunisation Vaccination System.

NHS England has an online checker to enable you to find your 10-digit NHS number. Simply, visit the online tool (link below) and enter your details to validate your identity to obtain your personal NHS number.

Please do not attend for a vaccine appointment if you have any symptoms of coronavirus, cold or flu. You cannot have the vaccination within 28 days of a positive COVID test.

If you are pregnant, please consult your obstetrician before having the vaccine. Whilst the Oxford AstraZeneca is safe for pregnant women to have, your obstetrician will be able to advise on whether any pre-existing conditions may stop you from having it. Pregnant staff will need to produce a signed letter or document from their obstetrician, stating that they have discussed the risks and have decided to go ahead.

For advice for healthcare workers, click here.

If you have had a flu jab in the last 7 days, you cannot be vaccinated and will need to make an appointment for a minimum of 7 days after the date of your flu jab.

For those on blood thinning medication: You can receive the vaccine as long as you are on stable anticoagulation therapy. Please inform the vaccinator/lead nurse or doctor on duty when you arrive at the hospital hub.

Please do not arrive earlier than 10 minutes before your appointment time as there is very little waiting area provision. Similarly, please attend your appointment alone where possible.
