COVID-19 BOOSTER VACCINATIONS

The COVID-19 booster programme has now begun in the UK.

You will become eligible for the third dose of the COVID-19 vaccine 6 months after your second dose. Patients will be invited in the same order of priority as with the first wave of COVID vaccinations:

1. Those in residential care homes, who are housebound, or who work in health and social care.

2. Those aged 16-49 with specific underlying health conditions which put them at high risk of complications due to COVID-19 infection.

3. All adults over 50 in descending age order.

4. Adult household contacts of immunosuppressed individuals

You can book your vaccine either through the National Booking Service website or by calling the NHS COVID-19 helpline on 119.

Please do not try to book your third dose of the COVID-19 vaccine until 6 months after your second dose or until you are invited by the local NHS service via text or email.

Please do not contact the surgery for COVID-19 vaccine bookings. We are unable to book appointments on behalf of our patients.
