LYPFT Covid Vaccination Centre

This page contains Covid19 vaccination information for our staff and service users. Page last updated: Thursday 14 January 2021

Following extensive trials, the first safe and effective COVID-19 vaccines have been approved in the UK and the NHS is now able to offer vaccines to those who are at most risk from Covid-19.

The first vaccinations are now being offered to people in the priority groups identified by the Joint Committee of Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI):

  1. Residents in a care home for older adults, and their carers
  2. Over 80s, frontline health and care staff
  3. Over 75s
  4. Over 70s, and clinically extremely vulnerable individuals
  5. Over 65s
  6. Under 65s with underlying health conditions
  7. Over 60s
  8. Over 55s
  9. Over 50s

If you are a member of LYPFT staff looking for information on how to register your interest for the vaccine or for the eLearning package, we’ve created a dedicated page for you.

When vaccines will be rolled out

It is anticipated that the top four priority groups including older care home residents and staff, everyone over 70, all frontline NHS and care staff and all those who are clinically extremely vulnerable will be vaccinated by the middle of February based on how the rollout is progressing.

It’s important to be aware that vaccine stocks are available through a carefully managed national route and those at most risk are being prioritised.

Our Vaccination Hub at The Mount (The Annexe)

We’ve set up a vaccination hub at The Mount in central Leeds where we will be vaccinating our staff and service users.  You can watch the video below to find out more on what to expect when you attend your appointment:

Address: The Mount (Annexe Building), 44 Hyde Terrace, Woodhouse, Leeds LS2 9LN (near the University of Leeds campus and Leeds General Infirmary)

On arrival please go to the Annexe building rather than the main reception (see photo below).

Directions: Find us on Google Maps.

Parking: There is a small car park on site and there is on-street parking in the surrounding area. Please note that some on-street parking is short stay, and some is for residents only – please double check where you park! We are able to offer other car parking options close by which the booking service admin team can let you know about.

Soon people will be able to get the vaccine at large regional centres and from GP practices. People will be contacted in order of priority when it is their turn.

A note about scams – only the NHS is providing the vaccine

Please note that vaccinations are free of charge and only available through the NHS.

Anyone who claims to be able to provide you with a vaccine for a fee is likely to be committing a crime and should be reported to the Police online or by calling 112.  The NHS will never ask you to press a button on your keypad or send a text asking you to confirm you want the vaccine.
