Covid Vaccination Booster Programme
We are currently offering covid boosters at a number of our sites. The main vaccination site is Shipley but we are also running “pop-up” sites at Sunnybank, Cowgill, The Willows and Thornton.
We have been inviting eligible patients via text messages. The message will have a link that you can click on. This link will be individual to you. After you confirm your date of birth, you will be able to choose an appointment from a list of available appointments.
You can also call our Covid Booking line on 01274 424001.
Please ensure that the surgery has your correct mobile number and that you have consented to text messages so that you receive our invite.

COVID vaccination certificate
An NHS COVID Pass shows your coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccination details or test results. This is your COVID-19 status. The easiest way to get an NHS COVID Pass is to download the NHS App from the Apple Store or Google Play.
You may be asked to show your pass to get into some events or to travel abroad.
Find out who can get an NHS COVID Pass and how to get one.
Please note that this practice is not able to provide you with a letter that shows your COVID-19 vaccination status.
If the NHS App does not show your Covid-19 status, then please use this link to contact the NHS App team. Select Covid-19 issue on the online form.
If you are one of our immunocompromised patients then we may offer you an additional dose of the Covid vaccine. This is different from the vaccine booster that will be offered to all patients.
Studies indicate some immunocompromised people do not always build as high a level of immunity after vaccination as immunocompetent people do. An additional dose may prevent serious COVID-19 in people whose immune system may not have fully responded to their initial 2-dose vaccine series.
Some of the conditions and treatments that result in immunosuppression include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Active treatment for solid tumor and hematologic malignancies
- Receipt of solid-organ transplant and taking immunosuppressive therapy
- Receipt of chimeric antigen receptor (CAR)-T-cell or hematopoietic stem cell transplant
- Moderate or severe primary immunodeficiency (e.g., DiGeorge syndrome, Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome)
- Advanced or untreated HIV infection
- Active treatment with high-dose corticosteroids, alkylating agents, antimetabolites, transplant-related immunosuppressive drugs, cancer chemotherapeutic agents classified as severely immunosuppressive, tumor-necrosis factor (TNF) blockers, and other biologic agents that are immunosuppressive or immunomodulatory.
Shipley Medical Practice has been carrying out COVID-19 vaccinations on behalf of all the practices in Affinity Care.
The vaccine clinics are held at the Alexandra road site. Please enter using the door with 3 round windows shown in this picture. The clinics will be clearly signposted.
We operate a one way system in the clinics. If you are waiting for a patient who is having the vaccination, please note they will exit from the main practice entrance.
Please call our dedicated COVID-19 vaccine booking line on 01274 424001 if you would like to book an appointment for a vaccine.

Recovering from coronavirus
View NHS advice on the long-term effects of coronavirus (long COVID).
As you find yourself recovering from COVID-19 you may still be coming to terms with the impact the virus has had on both your body and mind.
These changes should get better over time, some may take longer than others, but there are things you can do to help.
Your COVID Recovery helps you to understand what has happened and what you might expect as part of your recovery.
