Covid Boosters Posted on 21 Mar 2022

Covid boosters have been runnings for several weeks now. Patients are being called in turn based on the eligibility criteria (which you will have seen in the news keep changing!)

Essentially - you have to be over 50 (or have one of the medical conditions listed on the government website) and have had your second dose a minimum of 5 months ago.

Booster clinics are being run at Shorne Village Surgery and Summerhouse Surgery. All appointments have to be booked, this is not a turn up and jab service unlike flu clinics due to the requirement to observe patients for 15 minutes post vaccination. (Pfizer covid vax.) 

Patients can also go to the clinics that are accessed via the instructions on the letter or text being sent out by NHS England.
