COVID Vaccination

In Dacorum, all the GPs have joined forces and smaller Covid vaccination centres have been set up locally.

Dacorum Health Care Providers have been comissioned to run this service on our behalf and will be running a text/call service using a system called AccuBook. If you have a mobile phone, you will receive a text message inviting you to make an appointment via the link provided. You may also use this link to decline your vaccine and avoid further reminders. If you do not have a mobile phone, you will receive a phone call instead.

Many local pharmacies are also offering covid vaccines by booking via the NHS booking system here: by calling 119.

Hertfordshire Community Trust have also set up some pop-up clinics which are walk-in only. These sessions are subject to change depending on demand.

Covid-19 Vaccination Programme – Update for pregnant women 19/04/2021

The Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) has issued new advice on COVID-19 vaccinations for pregnant women.

The JCVI now advises that pregnant women should be offered the COVID-19 vaccine at the same time as the rest of the population, based on their age and clinical risk group. It is preferable for pregnant women in the UK to be offered the Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna vaccines where available. There is no evidence to suggest that other vaccines are unsafe for pregnant women, but more research is needed. There have been no specific safety concerns from any brand of COVID-19 vaccines in relation to pregnancy.

Pregnant woman in eligible cohorts who have yet to receive a COVID-19 vaccination, should be offered the Pfizer-BioNtech or Moderna vaccines. Pregnant women who commenced vaccination with AstraZeneca, however, are advised to complete with the same vaccine. If a woman finds out she is pregnant after she has started a course of vaccine, she may complete vaccination during pregnancy using the same vaccine product (unless contra-indicated). Alternatively, vaccination should be offered as soon as possible after pregnancy.

Please read the full guidance at – JCVI issues new advice on COVID-19 vaccination for pregnant women.

Covid-19 Vaccination Programme – Update 04/03/2021

We are delighted to have been able to deliver the first dose of the covid-19 vaccine to so many of our patients in recent weeks. The vaccination centre at Maxted Road has worked really well and we are continuing to bring patients in for their vaccine – particularly focussing on those who are clinically at risk, and also our unpaid carers. We have also started to invite our more elderly patients in for their second dose.

There are some weeks when we are not receiving as much supply of the vaccine as we would like, and we know this has led to some frustration and concern. We do liaise with our colleagues in the NHS locally to try to get more vaccine stock into our centre, but the supplies are controlled nationally and this means we can’t always offer as many vaccine appointments as we want to. If you or someone you care for is eligible for a vaccination and is very concerned about waiting to be vaccinated, you can alternatively try to book online at vaccination/book-coronavirus-vaccination/or dial 119 to see if an alternative nearby vaccination centre has any appointments.

We are expecting the supply to increase considerably from the middle of March so we hope to be able to call in many more people after that – for their first and their second doses, and in line with national guidance about priority groups. Please be assured that nobody who is due a second dose will have to wait longer than 12 weeks for it.
