Hi all – todays government announcement has had a significant impact on the number of our patients who are now eligible for Covid Booster. Unfortunately, we do not have the vaccine supplies or the clinical space to match this new demand and all of our appointments for December are either fully booked or available to patients who have already been invited. We will have more vaccine and vaccination clinics in January but, unless something changes significantly, it will likely will take us until March to vaccinate the 5000+ patients who have now become eligible for boosters whilst at the same time vaccinating those patients who are still having first or second vaccines.
If you want your vaccine urgently, we strongly recommend that you book via NHS119 either by calling 119 from your phone or searching NHS119 on your computer or smart phone.
We are so sorry that we cannot help you right now, we were unaware of today’s announcement and continue to await national information about how this is planned to work.
Please try not to call the surgery regarding accessing vaccination at the moment as our team cannot help you and our phone lines are currently blocked with patients wanting to book boosters.
As soon as we have more news we will let you know.
