Covid-19 Booster Update

Message to our patients – update on the COVID-19 booster programme

Across Somerset the NHS and its partners are working extremely hard to roll out the COVID-19 booster vaccination programme to our communities.

From Monday 13th December, all adults are eligible for the Covid-19 booster vaccine, and you will be able to book via the National Booking System from Wednesday 15 December.

 You can have your booster 3 months from the date of your second vaccine, and you can access the National Booking System to book the appointment from 2 months.

 To support the Covid-19 booster programme of work, most routine work within the surgery will be paused. This is a national directive from the government and NHS England, not a decision the practice/SHS has made in isolation. As such, the practice will be triaging requests coming through and will prioritise urgent requests to support the redeployment of staff to support the vaccination programme. If we need to make any changes to any booked appointments, we will contact you directly.

 We apologise for the inconvenience that this may cause but hope that you understand.

 See more about the vaccination programme in Somerset, including the vaccination services here: https://www.somersetccg.nhs.uk/health/local-services/health-services-during-coronavirus/covid-19-vaccinations-in-somerset/

 We encourage everyone who is aged 18 and over, who is yet to have their booster and who is approaching 3 months from your second vaccine to use the National Booking System to arrange your appointment when you are able to do so.
