Please be advised that Streamside Surgery is not taking part in the administration of the Covid Boosters of the third COVID Vaccinations however, we hope the following information will be useful to you:
Is there a local offer for the COVID Boosters and 3rd doses?
Yes. Severn View Family Practice in Thornbury are providing this service to the Primary Care Network which includes the patients of the following five practices: Almondsbury Surgery, Piling Surgery, Severn View Family Practice, St Mary Street Surgery and Streamside Surgery.
Who is being invited?
In the first instance, immuno-suppressed patients are being invited for the third COVID vaccination dose. Patients then falling into cohorts 1-9 will be invited for the booster vaccination in order of their due date, i.e. no earlier than 6 months from the date of their second vaccination.
Please note, this does not mean you will be invited on your 6 month anniversary. Severn View Family Practice have a lot of patients to get through so it is possible that it will be some time thereafter.
How will I be invited to the vaccine programme delivered by Severn View Family Practice?
Severn View Family Practice will contact you directly when you become eligible for your vaccination. This may be by text, letter or telephone. You should follow the instructions provided to you.
When can I get the COVID Booster?
You are only eligible for the booster if your second dose was given to you 6 months or more ago. You will be invited once you become eligible and as appointment availability allows. Please do not be alarmed if you don’t hear exactly on your 6th month anniversary. You are on a list and will be contacted.
I have had a letter/text message from NHS England inviting me to book an appointment for a booster vaccination or a third dose, what do I do?
It is up to you where you would like to have your vaccine. You can follow the instructions outlined in the above correspondence or you can wait to be invited by Severn View Family Practice.
Can Streamside Surgery help me book my COVID Vaccine?
On this occasion, we cannot. We are not involved in any aspect of the booking process of either the COVID booster or the 3rd dose. For further information please call 119.
I heard that you can walk-in to a centre without an appointment, is this true?
