Unvaccinated people are 32 times more likely to die from coronavirus than those who have been doubled-jabbed, according to figures from the Office for National Statistics: https://www.independent.co.uk/news/health/anti-vaxxers-covid-deaths-ons-b1949037.html It is essential that all health and social care workers continue to be protected against both viruses.
All Mersey Care staff with clinical contact, including social contact with patients or service users, are eligible for both vaccines, as well as those staff who are over 50 – as long as you had your second COVID-19 vaccine more than 26 weeks (182 days) ago. Please make sure you are within this time limit when booking your appointment or you will be turned away from the vaccination centre as we will be unable to process you for vaccination. Both COVID-19 booster and flu vaccines will be administered at the same time.
Flu only appointments are now available to all Mersey Care staff. Unfortunately, we are still not able to offer the COVID-19 booster to staff who do not have a clinical role or are under 50. Please book your ‘Flu only’ appointment via this link booking your appointment Clinics are also available on Saturdays: 6, 13, 20 November from 9am to 1pm.
Please don’t share this link outside of Mersey Care as we are only able to vaccinate staff who will need to present their ID badge on arrival at the centre. Please arrive at the vaccination centre at the time of your appointment, we’re extremely busy at the moment and this will help to keep us to schedule.
For those members of staff struggling to get to the vaccination centre at Maghull Health Park, please find a link to Cheshire and Merseyside Health and Care Partnership which allows health care workers only to book their COVID-19 booster vaccination at various sites across Cheshire and Merseyside. Those staff who take up this offer will have to make separate arrangements for flu vaccines. Please share this with colleagues so those who are eligible can make their booking.
The vaccination centre is at Maghull Health Park, Parkbourn, Maghull, L31 1HW. (Site entrance is via Villas Road or for those familiar with the what3words navigation system, use: unloading.spoiled.retained). If you have booked an appointment and need to cancel, please email the vaccination centre vaccinations
