Covid 19 Coronavirus
*STAY AT HOME – to stop coronavirus from spreading*
Everyone must stay at home to help stop the spread of coronavirus.
This includes people of all ages – even if you do not have any symptoms or other health conditions.
You can only leave your home:
- to shop for basic essentials – only when you really need to
- to do one form of exercise a day – such as a run, walk or cycle, alone or with other people you live with
- for any medical need – for example, to visit a pharmacy or deliver essential supplies to a vulnerable person
- to travel to and from work – but only where this is absolutely necessary
What to do if you have coronavirus symptoms
Continue to stay at home if you have either:
- a high temperature
- a new, continuous cough
To protect others, do not go to the GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital. Stay at home.
Use the 111 online coronavirus service to find out what to do.
Only call 111 if you cannot get help online.

How can I view my vaccination record?
You may view your vaccination record if you have online access. Alternatively, you may ask for a print out of your record. Please speak a member of the reception team who can help you with this.
Am I up to date with my routine vaccinations?
If you are up to date with your routine vaccinations, you should have had 2 MMR vaccinations over the age of 1, and 5 doses of a tetanus containing vaccine (3 primary doses and 2 booster doses – the 2nd booster dose is usually given around 14 years old).
What if I have no vaccination records/ or I have had vaccinations as a child but I have no record of it / or I have some records and some missing records/ or I am not up to date with my routine vaccinations?
The nurse can offer you ‘catch up’ vaccinations. It will not harm you if you have actually it the past and you are re-vaccinated.
How early should I see the visit a travel clinic?
It is recommended you visit a travel clinic when you know you will be travelling. It is useful to know the destination, dates, type of accommodation, and estimated things you would be doing on your trip. This could be a few months in advance if you wish as some vaccination schedules vary.
