Welcome to Cropredy Surgery
We have been asked by the CCG to post this information
The COVID-19 vaccination programme is open to anyone aged 18 and over. There are currently two vaccines being used locally in Oxfordshire:
The vaccines are allocated nationally and local centres do not have any influence over which they receive. You cannot choose which vaccine you have. When you book, you'll only be offered appointments for vaccines that are suitable for you.
Most people can have any of the COVID-19 vaccines, but some people are only offered certain vaccines. For example, if you're pregnant or under 40 you'll usually only be offered appointments for the Pfizer/BioNTech or Moderna vaccines.
You should have the same vaccine for both doses, unless you had serious side effects (such as a serious allergic reaction) after your 1st dose. These are very rare reactions and if affected, you will be informed by your GP or hospital clinician, that a different vaccine is necessary for your second dose. Minor side effects after having any of the vaccinations are common and not a cause for concern. These are usually mild and should not last longer than a week, such as:
- • a sore arm from the injection
- • feeling tired
- • a headache
- • feeling achy
- • feeling or being sick
If you need to know about certification regarding your covid vaccinations - please look under 'Covid Information' on the right hand bar
We have now completed all our first vaccinations for Cohorts 1-9 and are well into our second vaccinations for these groups.
We will not be continuing into Cohorts 10-12 as the local population is well served by vaccination centres and we want to focus completely on the medical care of our patients at the surgery. Being only a small surgery it has very much stretched us to deliver the vaccination program, yet we achieved a phenomenal success of which we are very proud
We are inordinately grateful to all the help that our patients and volunteers have given us, without whom we would have struggled to give the initial 2000 vaccinations, let alone the second 2000 doses which we will complete in June 2021
If you wish to send in a photograph to the surgery, please call the surgery first and we will arrange a simple IT fix which allows you to send the photograph direct into your medical notes.
Cropredy Surgery aims to provide the highest quality, holistic, patient-centred healthcare delivered with respect, compassion and understanding.
We are confident that our website will provide clear and concise help and give our patients the information they require in an easy and convenient format. It has been designed with the patient’s needs at the forefront of everything, from checking surgery times to letting us know what you think of us.
Our dedicated team is here to treat those minor ailments that occur as well as providing specialist management of long-term conditions and clinics covering a wide range of healthcare issues. The technology also means you can now do a lot of things from the comfort of your home such as order a repeat prescription, cancel an appointment or view your electronic records.
Partners in Care
Once registered, patients and healthcare professionals work together to ensure the most appropriate care is provided. This partnership philosophy extends even further and our active patient group exists to make sure that patient needs and the practice offering are always heading in the same direction.
Access & Parking
Cropredy Surgery is a semi-rural, dispensing practice housed in a building constructed in 2001 with suitable disabled facilities. We have plenty of car parking around the surgery.
