Coronavirus - stay alert to stay safe

The dedicated NHS teams delivering Coronavirus vaccines in Rotherham are now well underway with second dose vaccinations.

The NHS in England has vaccinated more than 25 million people against COVID-19, with the number of people receiving their second dose reaching a new weekly high.

Rotherham vaccination sites will provide second dose vaccinations at 11 to 12 weeks after the first dose was given.

More than 100,000 Rotherham residents have now received their first dose.

Second doses of the same vaccine will be administered at the same vaccination centre where you had your first dose (Montgomery Hall in Wath, St Ann’s Leisure Centre, Rawmarsh Customer Service Centre and Oak House, Bramley).

NHS Rotherham CCG believes they have invited people who are due to have their 2nd vaccine, however they don’t want to miss anybody.

If you received your FIRST DOSE of the vaccine at one of the Rotherham sites on or before 10th January 2021 and have not received an appointment for your SECOND DOSE, then:

– Send your forename, surname, date of birth, GP practice, contact phone number, postcode and date and location you had your 1st vaccine to roccg.secondappointment@nhs.net (EXCLUDING those registered at Swallownest, Thurcroft, Dinnington and Kiveton Park practices).

– If you are registered at Swallownest, Thurcroft, Dinnington and Kiveton Park – send your details (as above) to Roccg.rvspcn.covidqueries@nhs.net.

If you received your first dose after Sunday 10th January 2021 the NHS will be in contact when you are due to have your 2nd dose. If you received your first dose at the hospital hub, a care home or in your own home you will be contacted separately to arrange an appointment for the 2nd dose 11 to 12 weeks after your first dose.

Vaccines Minister Nadhim Zahawi said: “Vaccines save lives and they are the best way out of this pandemic, so I urge everyone to come forward for the vaccine when it’s your turn, to protect yourself and your loved ones.

“Millions of people will soon be getting their second doses – giving them the strongest possible protection against COVID-19 – and it’s crucial people take up this offer as soon as they are invited.”
