SPRING BOOSTERS FOR COVID-19
Due to an increase in enquiries about the spring booster, we are asking that people refrain from contacting the practice unless absolutely necessary.
We have a designated vaccine booking team who will be in touch IF you are eligible for the spring boosters. If you're unsure whether you come into this category, please call 119 for advice.
Please see below for government advice found from the gov.uk website.
Who is being offered a spring booster?
COVID-19 is more serious in older people and those with a weakened immune system. Protection from the vaccine may be lower and may decline more quickly in these people. For this reason people aged 75 years and over, those in care homes and those aged 12 years and over with a weakened immune system are being offered the spring booster.
This spring booster is being offered as a precaution to those at extremely high risk, most of whom received their first booster around 6 months ago.
