The PCN has made the decision to offer Spring Booster Covid Vaccinations to the 75's and over, and immunosuppressed in line with government recommendations. This avoids our most frail and vulnerable having to travel further afield. We are currently only offering the following Saturdays: 9th, 23rd and 30th April.
If you are eligible you will be contacted by NHSE either by text or letter – we will not be writing to, or chasing patients to attend. The spring booster is timed to be given 6m after your last vaccine – this is the best time for boosting your immunity. We can take bookings from 3m but remember 6m is optimal and having any earlier may make it less effective. You cannot have the vaccine within 4w of testing positive with a Covid infection.
Please book your appointment online where possible to help reduce pressure on our phone lines. If you are unable to book online please contact the surgery.
