Fleet Town Council Coronavirus Update 

World pro-rata deaths from Coronavirus for each country.

Information with regard to Covid-19 vaccinations

Covid vaccine update. From Councillor Steve Forster. Vaccination update - Fleet & Church Crookham GP surgeries. 7pm Tuesday evening. 

We have been asked which vaccination sites will be operating locally to supplement the mass vaccination site at Epsom Downs Racecourse which covers a large area of Hampshire, Surrey etc. including Hart. 

Before I detail the latest info, you should note that it is advisable by NHS professionals and the chief medical officer that you should receive the vaccine at the earliest possible date when offered. An early vaccination offers the best protection from COVID and all the sites are as COVID safe as possible. 

They are run by the NHS. I can confirm the latest info received is that in addition to the mass testing site - which is hardly local for many across Hampshire, but is one of 7 mass locations countrywide - there are 4 nearby NHS designated sites by the NHS for Fleet & Church Crookham area residents. 

This may change in the future, as the vaccine rolls out, but below is what is currently proposed. 

These are what has been announced by the NHS and the local CCG. 

1 There will be a site at The War Memorial Hall in Church Crookham (opposite the Wyvern pub). This is likely to be live for appointments later next week. (Richmond Surgery patients)

2 Another site is at Princes Hall in Aldershot. This has a large parking area (Branksomewood patients)  

3 There is another site in Yateley - one of the first and most experienced vaccination sites in the country. This is at the Monteagle Surgery (Fleet Medical Centre patients) 

4 The final site in our area is at Farnham (Crondall) It hasn’t been finalised yet which sites will be used for each GP practice but that info is expected very soon in line with the above ... I’ll post updates as soon as the detail are confirmed.  There are many incorrect rumours and it’s important to only release verified information. 

The above should assist those for whom farther sites are more difficult to reach but I’m personally very, very disappointed and concerned there at present it is unlikely there will be a site actually in Fleet, and the difficulties this might cause for some residents. I am making the views of Fleet residents who have expressed concern (some say they will have been let down if there is no site in Fleet itself) clear to the NHS - as well as to Hart Officers and the leader of the Council who have not yet been able to successfully broker or agree anything truly local in Fleet with the local practices and the NHS. Nonetheless all or GPs and staff are working hard to deliver this huge vaccination project for all of us and we fully support them.  The booking process details will also be released shortly - in the meantime please DO NOT contact your GP practice or the NHS or council.

Currently your GP practice or the NHS will contact you in writing or by text message when it is your turn. You can then book online (simplest and easiest) or through a telephone hotline as long as you have been notified that you should do so.  I repeat that that you should NOT call in about a vaccination appointment until you have the letter confirming it is your turn.  If you receive a letter or text message from the NHS or your GP that asks for bank details or private info, please note it is a SCAM. The NHS will never ask for private or bank details. Vaccinations are free.  If you need help and are completely unable to get to a scheduled appointment once you have received the NHS notification, then please do contact the Hampshire Coronavirus and Support Line (service provided locally by Hart) on 0333 370 4000 and they may be able to assist.  Local taxi companies such as Hart taxis will also probably be offering a chargeable service to take people to appointments, including waiting and return.  The CCG Clinical Commissioning Group has just this evening released their update on their website on

Covid19 Scam Awareness

Criminals are exploiting the COVID-19 pandemic to defraud people. 

Below are some of the most common scams to be aware of:

  • An unexpected email from the government offering you money. 
  • The 'infection list' scam mimicking the World Health Organisation (WHO) claiming to provide a list or map of local infections.
  • An email from HM Government asking for donations for the NHS.
  • An HMRC email stating you are ‘eligible to receive a tax refund’.
  • Sale of fake COVID-19 swabbing tests, supplements, and anti-virus kits.
  • A text message asking you to pay a fine as it says you have been ‘recorded as leaving your home on three occasions’ during the lockdown. 
  • A phone call stating ‘government guidelines now require everyone to wear a mask outside the house, press 1 to purchase your mask’.
  • Cleansing services that offer to clean drives and doorways to kill bacteria or offering to 'decontaminate' the inside of your home. 
  • Bogus healthcare workers offering to take your temperature or provide 'home-testing' for the virus.
  • Criminals offering to do your shopping. They take the money and do not return.

Always question unsolicited calls, texts or emails requesting your personal or financial information (name, address, bank details). To verify the company contact them directly using a known email or phone number. For advice on cybercrime, or to report suspicious emails, visit Anyone who has been a victim of fraud or cybercrime can report it online at or call 0300 123 2040

New Hampshire Coronavirus Services

Good Afternoon,

This email is intended to update you all to a new service provided by Hampshire County Council in relation to the current Coronavirus pandemic. The information below explains what the service is and how to access it -

Coronavirus Hampshire Helpline - How can I get help?

A new helpline is now available to provide information and advice, as well as practical support to frail or vulnerable Hampshire residents.

The Coronavirus Hampshire Helpline (Hantshelp4vulnerable) can be contacted on
0333 370 4000

The helpline* is available seven days a week, from 9am-5pm, and is for vulnerable people who do not have support from families, friends or their local community, and who need urgent assistance with practical issues

The Government has also identified some people who are 'extremely vulnerable' to getting seriously ill from Coronavirus because of an underlying health condition such as COPD, certain cancers and auto-immune conditions, and pregnant women with underlying health conditions.  Those in this group will have been contacted by the NHS to request that they should not leave home for at least 12 weeks, and have been advised that if they do not have friends, family or neighbours who can provide support, they can register for help to access food, medicine and social contact via gov. uk/coronavirus-extremely-vulne rable.
What sort of help will I get?

The Hampshire helpline is for frail or vulnerable people who need urgent assistance with essential food or household supplies, collection of medication, or who are at risk of loneliness. Please discuss your requirements with our friendly advisors who will ensure you get the help you need.

If you need urgent food supplies, you can expect to receive a food box, typically containing:

UHT milk
Long life orange juice
Plus urgent household necessities if needed eg shower gel
Wherever possible, special dietary requirements will be met. 

Keeping safe

It is vital that if you are giving, or receiving help, you take precautions to ensure your safety and those of others. We urge all volunteers to adhere to Government's (How to help safely) guidance on how to volunteer safely.
Your local Council for Voluntary Service (Link to voluntary services) will also be able to provide information and support.
If you are receiving help, you should follow the Government's social distancing and hygiene guidance. Do not let anyone into your home, unless you have confirmation that they are a registered professional or representative of a recognised Voluntary / Community sector organisation. Be cautious and curious and ask volunteers for proof of ID.
You can keep up to date with the latest Government guidance via
If you're worried you have Coronavirus, follow the NHS advice

Please remain safe and follow the Governments guidance on Coronavirus which states you need to -
Stay at home

Only go outside for food, health reasons or work (but only if you cannot work from home)

If you go out, stay 2 metres (6ft) away from other people at all times

Wash your hands as soon as you get home

Do not meet others, even friends or family. You can spread the virus even if you don’t have symptoms.

Thank you fro taking the time to read this important email. I hope you, your family and friends stay safe and well during these difficult times.

Take care
