COVID BOOSTER UPDATE

PLEASE DO NOT CALL THE PRACTICE REGARDING COVID BOOSTERS

Covid 19 Boosters

The government has announced the roll out of Covid vaccine boosters for the over 50’s, health and social care workers and younger people at risk.  These people will be offered a booster vaccine a minimum of 6 months after completion of their second dose.

Flu and Covid 19

It is safe for you to receive a flu vaccine at the same time as your Covid booster but we have been told that you should not wait to receive both.  If you are offered either please accept the offer.

Invitation Process

Patients will be invited by a central Covid vaccination team and not via your GP practice.  This will either be via a text with a link you should follow or via a telephone call.  Please do not call your GP practice.

Housebound patients

The Covid vaccination team are working on a process and workforce for vaccinating our housebound patients.

 Vaccinations for Children

The majority of healthy children and young people aged 12-15 will be vaccinated in schools.
