COVID BOOSTER VACCINE UPDATE

For all the latest information about  3rd Primary Doses and Booster COVID-19 Vaccines click here. 

Please call the surgery to book your booster appointment for 18 years of age and over who are 91 days past their 2nd vaccine.

We will try, where possible, to give the Covid booster vaccination alongside the flu vaccination. We will be giving the vaccine to patients in cohorts like we did with the previous Covid vaccination programme. We can only provide the Covid booster vaccination if there has been 3 months (91 days) between the date of your 2nd Covid vaccination and the 3rd booster vaccination. 

If you have received a letter from your hospital consultant /NHS regarding a 3rd Primary Dose of Covid Vaccine, as you are deemed to be severely immunosuppressed (as opposed to being eligible for a Covid booster after the usual 6 months), then you can either contact your consultant to arrange this or contact your GP Surgery if 8 weeks have elapsed since your 2nd Covid vaccination.

If you book an appointment at your GP Surgery, please bring your letter / text with you to show you are eligible for this 3rd Primary Dose of the Covid vaccine.

HOUSEBOUND PATIENTS

We will be endeavouring to complete all COVID-19 Boosters for our housebound patients by the 21st of January 2022

WHICH COVID-19 BOOSTER VACCINE WILL I GET

Most people will be offered a booster dose of the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine or Moderna vaccine.

Sid Valley Practice will only be offering the Pfizer vaccine.

This means your booster dose may be different from the vaccines you had for your 1st and 2nd doses.
