Noticeboard

The NHS is now offering vaccinations to people under 50. These will be offered to people by age, starting with those aged 45 and over.

 Getting an appointment

If you would like to book an appointment, please visit www.nhs.uk/covid-vaccination. This will tell you what the current age limit is and allow you to book an appointment at a time and location that suits you. If you are not able to book online you can call 119 free of charge, between 7am and 11pm seven days a week. As the age limit reduces, this will be updated on the booking homepage. 

 

Getting your second vaccination

People need two doses of the vaccine to make sure they get maximum protection. If you had your first dose at a GP centre, we will contact you when it is time for your second dose. This will usually be 11-12 weeks after your first vaccination. Please don’t contact the practice for an appointment, unless it is over 11 weeks since you had your first vaccination.

 

For more information about the vaccine, please visit www.nhs.uk
