Islington Covid-19 Vaccination Programme
The Covid-19 vaccination programme has begun and The Miller Practice is contacting its patients following NHS guidelines.
The Miller Practice has now contacted all those patients in Priority Groups 1-9. NHS England will continue to vaccinate patients in Cohorts 10-12 (under aged 50 years). Please check the NHS website for the current eligible age group.
We are currently experiencing an overwhelming number of queries into the surgery relating to the Covid-19 vaccination programme and we are unable to answer these questions individually. Please do not contact us by telephone. IGPF (Islington Federation) has launched a new telephone advice line for our patients. Please contact them if you have any questions relating to appointment booking, technical issues, overdue second doses. 020 3838 7120. If you decide to call the Practice, our reception staff will politely direct you to our website. For more information please click here

If you cannot access these online services, and you have had 2 vaccines, you can request a paper letter from the NHS by calling 119. Only call 119 if you had your second dose more than 5 working days ago. It may take 7 working days for the letter to arrive.
