What do I need to know about getting a vaccination at Tithe Farm?

  • You will be contacted when we have a vaccine for you. We are approaching people in different groups, starting with the oldest and most in need. Please do not contact the surgery to ask when you will get a vaccine as our telephone lines are extremely busy. Please be patient, your turn will come.
  • You will be given a time to attend and it would help if you arrive 15 minutes before your time.   Parking is limited.  If you arrive any earlier you may be asked to come back or wait in an overflow car park. Do not visit us unless you have been invited. There are no spare vaccines and you will only make our work more difficult.
  • Our volunteer wardens in high vis-jackets will ask you to wait in your car until called. If you find it difficult to walk or need to use a wheelchair please let them know.
  • There is a simple form that we need you to fill in.  To save time please download this from our website (New Patient Arrival Form), though we can give you a form when you arrive. Please bring a pen with you.
  • When you fill in the form we will need your name and your date of birth and the name of someone to contact if there is a problem while you are with us. We also need your NHS number, which you should be able to find on any recent communication from the surgery or from a hospital or clinic appointment. If you cannot find your NHS number please leave that spot blank. You can get your NHS number from the reception at Tithe Farm.
  • Please wear a coat or jacket over a short-sleeved shirt or T-shirt.  If you do not have a mask we will give you one. Please do not put your coat over the seats or on the table but hold on to it while you wait. You will be able to sit in the waiting area, have your vaccination when called and wait for ten minutes afterwards. You will be given a second appointment before you leave.
  • The building has a one-way system. Please do not go back to the reception area once you have left it.  Please use the toilet just before you leave home.
  • Our aim is to get you into and out of the building as soon as we can. The quicker we can be the more people we can protect.  Please bear with us as we work together to meet the biggest challenge our health service in Harrow has ever faced.
  • It you can’t make your appointment please let us know. If we contacted you by text please go back to the text and use the cancel option. If we contacted you by phone then please ring the surgery.
  • The Tithe Farm Sports and Social Club is at 151 Rayners Lane. The postcode is HA2 0XH. There are direction signs to the site. You may be invited to have your vaccination at The Hive or Byron Hall where the procedure will be broadly similar.
  • If you are able to travel to Tithe Farm without a car, there are new bus stops for the H12 bus route (travelling in both directions) directly outside. There is a separate entrance for pedestrians and we will aim to deal with you as quickly as possible.Thank you for your help. We look forward to seeing you before too long.
