This winter it is expected that many respiratory infections, including COVID-19 and flu, may be circulating at high levels. Because of this, certain groups of people are being offered Covid-19 boosters and Flu vaccinations.
As before, eligible patients can have vaccinations either through the Primary Care Network or at local pharmacies via National Booking. The advantage of booking through the Primary Care Network is that staff at our clinics will be able to administer Covid and flu vaccinations at the same time. Research has shown that this is safe to do.
National Booking Service information
If you have received a letter from the national booking system about a vaccination appointment and have any questions about this, please contact them on the number given. The practice does not have any information on the centres and is not able to book appointments for patients at these venues.
