COVID-19 Vaccine Update
We are continuing to run our covid vaccination clinics at Porter Brook Medical Centre when vaccines are delivered to us and have been contacting eligible patients by phone, text and letter to book them in. We’d like to thank all our patients for your continued support and for your patience and kind words at this difficult time – it means a lot to us.
We are working with other Practices in our local Primary Care Network to deliver the COVID-19 vaccine. Our vaccine clinic is at Porter Brook Medical Centre (not Ecclesall or Upperthorpe).
The first group of patients who have been offered the vaccine are patients aged over 80 and we are moving onto other groups as determined by the government's guidelines. We are contacting eligible patients by text, phone and letter. Please do not contact us.
When you have received your vaccine appointment please note the following information:
Your appointment will be at Porter Brook Medical Centre, 9 Sunderland Street, Sheffield, S11 8HN
If you need to cancel or change your appointment please don’t phone Porter Brook, phone us on 0114 275 1010. Appointment times are limited so we can only offer alternatives in exceptional circumstances.
Please wear warm clothing that can be easily removed ready for your injection
You will be at the site for about 25 minutes – this includes 15 mins observation time (if the Pfizer vaccine has been administered)
Please arrive on time for your appointment – not too early as this may cause traffic congestion/queues
If assistance is needed, please come accompanied but only one carer per patient inside the building please
Do not attend if you have COVID symptoms or have had a test in the last 10 days and are isolating
