VACCINATION – WHERE AND BY WHOM
The NHS has planned extensively to deliver the largest vaccination programme in our history, providing three different delivery methods:
Hospital Hubs – which are focusing on NHS and social care staff
Local Vaccine Services – provided by GPs working together as Primary Care Networks (PCNs)
Vaccination Centres – large sites based within local communities and convenient for transport networks.
NORTH HANTS VACCINATION CENTRES (Local Vaccine Services)
Site name: The Lights
Site type: Local Vaccination Service (GP led)
Postcode: SP10 1AH

Lead PCN or NHS Provider: ANDOVER PCN

None of these locations offer a drop-in vaccination service. All vaccinations are arranged in advance through invitation based on the national priority groups. Please wait to be contacted for your vaccine.
HOW WILL I BE INVITED FOR MY VACCINE?
Please wait to be contacted by the NHS for an appointment.
When it is the right time people will be contacted to make their appointments. For most people they will receive a letter either from their GP or the national booking system; this will include all the information they need, including their NHS number. Some services are currently also phoning and texting patients to invite them in.
Across Hampshire and the Isle of Wight our residents will be invited in one of three ways to have a vaccination:
Using a local GP service: GP practices are working together across the county to vaccinate as many people as possible. Residents may be contacted by a different surgery to the one they usually go to.
Local hospital services: Patients may be contacted to have the vaccination as an inpatient or outpatient.
At a vaccination centre: These are due to go live shortly. If a person lives within 30 to 45 minutes of a vaccination centre, and haven’t already been vaccinated, they may have received a letter asking them to book an appointment online at www.nhs.uk/covid-vaccination. If they can’t access the NHS website they can call 119 free. If a person would prefer to be vaccinated by their local GP practice or vaccination centre, as explained in the letter, they can wait to be contacted by their GP or try the website again later as sites are being added as they become available.
NHS England is also arranging for some local pharmacies to provide the vaccination on an appointment basis. Details of pharmacies will be added to the national booking system as they go live so individuals will be able to book an appointment with them, if that is their choice.
