NHS COVID 19 VACCINATION SERVICE
ROTHER VALLEY SOUTH PRIMARY CARE NETWORK
COVID BOOSTER VACCINATION
Following the Government statement which set out plans to offer every adult a COVID Booster from Monday 13th December. Please see below our response.
From Tuesday 14th December we will be significantly increasing our COVID Booster vaccination appointments at Anston Medical Centre. Appointments for this service will be available during the hours of 7am-9pm weekdays and 8am and 1pm Saturday and Sunday for the next 2 weeks. You must book an appointment using the national booking service, either by phoning 119 or online at www.nhs.uk. We expect demand for these appointments to be high so please be patient and keep trying.
This is an extremely challenging time for our Practice and we will try as much as possible to keep our services at the current level, if we need to cancel or rearrange any appointments we will contact you directly. It is more important than ever to turn up for any appointment at the right time, do not arrive early. From Tuesday 14th December the majority of our face to face appointments will be at our New Street Surgery, Dinnington, any patients who have appointments booked will be contacted to advise them to attend New Street and not Anston Medical Centre.
ELIGIBILITY COVID BOOSTER VACCINE
All adults are eligible from Monday 13th December to receive a COVID Booster Vaccination but only if 3 months has elapsed since your second COVID vaccination dose.
