Changes to the Covid-19 Booster Vaccination Programme
The government have recently announced that they are going to make changes to the covid-19 booster programme which include:
- Reducing the time between the 2nd vaccination and the booster vaccinations to 3 months and;
- Extending the booster vaccination programme to include patients aged 18 to 39 who were not in previous eligible cohorts.
We are currently awaiting for operational guidance from NHS England on how they want to achieve this and when the changes to the Covid booster programme are to start.
The Practice wants to make sure that Christmas happens this year and support the increased roll out of the booster vaccination but we need this operational guidance from NHS England before we are able to go ahead with these changes.
WE KINDLY ASK THAT OUR PATIENTS WHO ARE NOW ELIGIBLE FOR A BOOSTER VACCINATION WAIT FOR FURTHER INFORMATION ON THIS WEBSITE AND DO NOT CALL THE PRACTICE PHONE LINES.
