The government and NHS England have asked us to focus on vaccinating in the coming weeks,  We appreciate your patience. As always, their team will be working hard to prioritise those who are most in need. Thank you for your understanding.

If they haven’t yet been in touch, you will hear from them when they have an appointment available. They are working hard to get our appointments set up, so this should be very soon. In the meantime, please do not contact us about getting a vaccination appointment.

Third dose vaccination for severely immunosuppressed aged 12+

The JCVI has advised that people with severely weakened immune systems should have a third COVID-19 vaccine dose.  This is separate to any potential COVID-19 booster vaccination.  There are national recommendations as to who is considered eligible for the third vaccine and General Practices are working with Hospital Specialists locally to identify those who should receive this.  There is no need contact the NHS.  If you or your child is eligible for vaccination, we will contact you.
