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.
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.
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.
