Proof of Vaccine Enquiries
From 17 May international travel will be permitted to a limited number of countries and in some cases proof of Covid-19 vaccination will be required. The mechanism for proving your vaccine status is through the NHS app. For those who cannot access the NHS app you can request written proof that you have received your Covid-19 vaccination by contacting the NHS on 119. Please do not contact your GP practice. You can find out more at:
We have been receiving a lot of calls today from patients who have received a letter about covid vaccination asking them for lots of personal information, including their bank details.
We would NEVER ask for your bank details. We have informed the police about this, but would be grateful if you could share the information about this scam far and wide to protect patients and also allow our phone lines to not be overrun with these queries.
Please send any examples of such letters to firstname.lastname@example.org
MASHAMSHIRE COMMUNITY OFFICE
RIPON VACCINATION CENTRE VOLUNTEERS NEEDED
We now have confirmation of a more local Vaccination Centre in Ripon. Mashamshire Community Office has been asked to recruit and co-ordinate volunteers to support the Ripon centre.
This is going to be a big job - the more people who can help, the more we can share the load between us.
There's been lots of speculation about the location, but it will actually be at Ripon Racecourse and will be getting up and running as soon as next week. Plans are still coming together but this is what we know so far:
- We need a team of marshals to support a day a week
- Likely to be needed from 2nd week in Feb
- Days could vary but Tue or Wed have been suggested
- Two sessions- 8am - 1.15pm and 1pm - 6pm
- 10 volunteers needed per session
- Duties include directing traffic and guiding people once inside
- All PPE and hi-vis will be provided
- DBS check not required
If you would like to volunteer or require more information, please contact Sarah McCourt on 01765 680200 or email email@example.com
