The ‘Spring Booster’ campaign begins on Monday March 21st with people aged 75 years and over, those in care homes and those aged 12 years and over with a weakened immune system are being offered the additional Covid vaccine.
Spring Booster is being offered as a precaution to those at extremely high risk, with the additional booster being offered 6 months after your last dose of vaccine.
Patients will be able to book via the National Booking System (NBS) from Monday March 21st.
Sett Valley Medical Centre will also be offering clinics for the Spring Boosters as well as continuing to offer first, second, third and booster doses to those who have not yet received them, however we are currently quite constrained by vaccine supply so we ask that, if you want to be vaccinated by your practice, you wait for us to contact you.
You may find that you can book via NBS more quickly, but this may require travelling to a vaccination centre out of town.
Vaccinations for 5-11 year old children are due to start in April and we will share information regarding this at a later date.
