COVID-19 BOOSTER UPDATE

From Monday 13th December all adults are eligible for their 3rd Booster Vaccination.

You will receive a message from the Practice inviting you to book an appointment for this.  We do also offer online booking for COVID appointments.

You can only book your booster if it is 3 months from the date of your second vaccine.

We are working at pace to increase the availability of appointments with new appointments being added as we receive notification we will have sufficient vaccine.  At present appointments are available on Saturday only.

We encourage everyone who is aged 18 and over, who is yet to have their booster and who is approaching 3 months from your second vaccine to book your appointment as soon as possible.

Surgery Information

Do not book a GP appointment if you think you might have coronavirus. Instead stay at home and self-isolate avoiding close contact with other members of your household.

Use the 111 coronavirus service to see if you need medical help.
If you do speak to one of our Doctors you must inform them of all symptoms you are experiencing.
