Booster Vaccinations

Please do not call the practice with general queries about the Covid-19 vaccination.

The booster vaccination programme is now aiming to offer appointments to all adults aged 18 and over by 31 December 2021. Local vaccination teams are working to rapidly increase the availability of appointments.

The national booking system has opened for over 30s and will open for 18-29-year-olds on Wednesday, 15 December. Some local vaccination services will also contact patients directly.

The time between your second dose and a booster must be at least three months.

You can book using the national booking service by calling 119 or at https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/coronavirus-vaccination/book-coronavirus-vaccination/ 

The national booking service will only show clinics that have appointments available when you visit the site/call 119; but clinics regularly add more dates.
