Covid Booster

Many patients are calling enquiring about the COVID Autumn Booster. The Surgery is not currently booking appointments for COVID, however will endeavour to offer the COVID booster during our weekend Flu clinics, which will be dependent upon vaccine supply and staffing.

Patients are advised to call 119 or visit the National Booking website on NHS: Book or manage coronavirus vaccine.

Here you will be able to find further advice on 1st and 2nd vaccines, along with the booster vaccines. Through the site you can book or find your nearest vaccination site.

It is important that you do not delay your Flu or COVID vaccine, as they can now be co-administered.

Please do not ring the surgery to book your COVID vaccine.
