You may have received a National Letter giving you the opportunity to book into one of the vaccination centres in Shrewsbury, Telford, Crewe, Stoke etc. If you cannot travel or do not want to attend one of these centres, please DO NOT Contact us. We are currently working through our clinical groups and we will contact you as soon as we are able to offer you an appointment at Severnfields Medical Practice.

Our staff are working extremely hard, and are receiving some very abusive phone calls from patients. Please note these staff are not only working at the surgery but are also working extra hours to support the vaccination programme.

We thank-you for your patience and please be assured you will be contacted.

Vaccination Clinic at Severnfields Medical Centre

We are delighted that Severn Fields Medical Centre has now been approved as a hub site for the delivery of COVID-19 vaccines, and clinics for all Shrewsbury GP practice patients are starting there this week. 

We are in the process of sending out text messages inviting patients over 70 to book their COVID-19 vaccination (if you do not have a mobile number, you will be contacted in another way). We are working through inviting a large list of patients, starting with the extremely vulnerable, then moving down the ages from 79 to 70. Your invite is on the way, please do not ring us. 

The text you receive will ask you to visit a link starting with “book.nhs.me”. Please rest assured that this is a legitimate invitation and a safe link to follow. You will be asked to confirm your date of birth only. For more information about this, please visit https://support.accurx.com/en/articles/4794856-i-have-been-invited-to-book-my-covid-19-vaccination-through-a-book-nhs-me-link-is-this-legitimate
