WEEKLY UPDATE 22 January 2021 – 每周疫情快讯 2021年1月22日

I: Mobile test centre in Chinatown

We helped organise the mobile testing unit that opened in Southside this week. Originally planned to be in the Arcadian, it was moved to the area outside the Hippodrome. It is there until Sunday 31st January.

Note that you should pre-book – there is no guarantee you will get a test if you turn up without an appointment. 

Details on the flyer below. 

II: Vaccination invitation letter to people aged 70

People aged 70+ should receive a letter or call inviting them to book an appointment for the Covid-19 vaccination.  The letter may come from their GP or the National Booking System.  

Birmingham & Solihull CCG have created a website to provide information and answer questions – 

https://www.birminghamandsolihullcovidvaccine.nhs.uk/

We have taken information from various local Public Health and NHS sources and put key points here: 

  • You can choose whether to have your vaccination at Millenium Point or your GP surgery
  • The Government has ordered 3 vaccines: Pfizer, AstraZeneca (‘Oxford’ vaccine), and Moderna
  • You cannot choose which vaccine you get
  • Vaccination is not compulsory but the NHS and Public Health bodies encourage you to have it

All vaccines work by introducing genetic material from the virus into your body. Your body’s immune system learns to recognise the genetic code and develops antibodies. If you catch the virus, your antibodies will fight it.  If you catch the virus naturally you could become extremely ill, you could even die or be left with long term effects. The vaccine protects you from this. Covid-19 will be defeated by more people having the jab as fewer people will become ill with the virus. 

  • The vaccine will help prevent illness but it is not known whether it prevents transmission
  • This means that even after having your jab, you must continue to observe Hands ● Face ● Space 
  • In order to be offered the vaccine, you must be registered with a GP 
  • When you go for your vaccine, you must take your vaccination letter – you will need your NHS number
  • The Mass Vaccination Centre states that people must not take anyone with them except carers if they’re needed for medical reasons.   Interpreters are provided at the centres
  • You will be required to say ‘I consent to the vaccination’
  • Even if you had Covid, you should still have the jab as it is not yet known how long naturally acquired antibodies last
  • All vaccinations are done by appointment only. Do not call your GP to book – you will receive a letter or a phone call when it is your turn. 

Although the vaccination is being rolled out, groups 1 & 2 are still top priority. 

III: Covid Catch-Up with Dr Justin Varney

每周疫情快讯: 2021年1月22日

请注意,您需要提前预约检测 – 如果您没有预约,不能保证您将被给予检测。

详情请查看附件单张。

II: 70岁以上的人士新冠疫苗接种邀请信

70岁以上的人士将收到电话或一封信,邀请他们预约接种新冠疫苗。 这封信是由您的家庭医生或国家医疗注册系统寄出。

伯明翰和Solihull医疗委员会创建了一个有关新冠疫苗接种的网站,提供相关信息,以及解答民众的问题

https://www.birminghamandsolihullcovidvaccine.nhs.uk/

我们从地方公共卫生部门和NHS收集了有关新冠疫苗接种的信息,重点内容如下:

  • 您可以选择在Millenium Point接种中心进行疫苗接种,或是在您家庭医生诊所接种。
  • 政府订购了3种新冠疫苗:辉瑞,AstraZeneca(“牛津”疫苗)和Moderna
  • 您不可以自己选择接种哪一种疫苗
  • 新冠疫苗接种并非强制性,但NHS和公共卫生机构鼓励您接种疫苗。

所有疫苗都是通过将病毒的遗传物质注入人体来起到保护作用。接种后,您身体的免疫系统可以识别出病毒的遗传密码,从而产生抗体。当您一旦感染了新冠病毒,您体内的抗体将对付新冠病毒。如果您自然感染了新冠病毒,则可能会病得很重,甚至可能死亡或产生长期影响。疫苗可以保护您免受此伤害。当越来越多的人接种新冠疫苗后,感染新冠病毒的人将会越来越少,新冠病毒也终将被打败。

  • 新冠疫苗有助于预防新冠肺炎,但尚不知道是否可以预防传播病毒。
  • 这意味着在接种完新冠疫苗以后,您仍然需要继续保持  勤洗手   ●戴口罩  ● 保持社交距离
  • 为了确保您能获得疫苗,您必须在您的家庭医生诊所注册
  • 在您前去接种新冠疫苗时,您必须携带疫苗接种的邀请信,并提供您的NHS号码。
  • 如果您选择去大规模疫苗接种中心,除了因医疗原因需要陪护人员或照料者陪同以外,您不可以带其他任何人进入接种中心,中心将提供口译工作人员。
  • 接种疫苗前您,您将被要求说出“我同意接种新冠疫苗”。
  • 即使您已经感染了新冠肺炎,您仍应当接种疫苗,因为尚不知道自然免疫获得的抗体能持续多久。
  • 所有疫苗接种均由系统预约安排。 请勿致电您的家庭医生。当轮到您接种时,您会收到家庭医生的信或电话。

尽管疫苗接种已经开始实施,但第1组和第2组优先人群仍然是现阶段疫苗接种的重中之重。

III:贾斯汀·瓦尼(Justin Varney)博士在线疫情发布会:

伯明翰公共衛生部總監賈斯汀•瓦尼(Justin Varney)博士將於2月4日(星期四)晚上7:30分至9点, 在线为伯明翰华人社区介绍有关新冠检测,疫苗接种,以及其他民众须知的最新信息。
