It is very important to have the booster to protect your own health and health of your loved ones. Rates of infection continue to increase and having the booster will give you an extra layer of protection over the winter months.
Please take action now.
Please note that the practice is currently unable to administer Covid booster vaccinations. Please do not contact the practice regarding the booster as our reception team are unable to provide any additional information.
Patients will be contacted by the NHS by text, letter or email when they are due their booster vaccination. You'll only be able to book an appointment for a booster dose at a vaccination centre if it's been at least 6 months (180 days) since your 2nd dose of the vaccine, so please wait to be contacted. You can visit the NHS website https://www.nhs.uk/covid-booster for more information.
Patients will be invited for booster vaccinations by the practice if the situation changes and we are able to administer them.
