In partnership with other local GP practices, we are pleased to say we have started providing Covid-19 booster jabs to people in eligible groups.
Following recent guidance set out by the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation, this means we will be inviting eligible people, who had their second Covid-19 jab at least six months ago, for a top up vaccination to boost protection against Covid-19.
This means priority will be given in the first instance to;
- people aged 50 and over
- people who live and work in care homes
- frontline health and social care workers
- people aged 16 and over with a health condition that puts them at high risk of getting seriously ill from Covid-19
- carers aged 16 and over
- people aged 16 and over who live with someone who is more likely to get infections (such as someone who has HIV, has had a transplant or is having certain treatments for cancer, lupus or rheumatoid arthritis)
- people who are pregnant and in one of the eligible groups can also get a booster dose.
We will be in touch with eligible people to get the jab, so please do not contact the practice, we will contact you.
The need for a six-month gap between second vaccination and the booster means that some of those in the original nine priority groups will not be contacted for their top-up until the New Year.
