Covid-19 Booster Vaccination Clinics 

Patients will be contacted directly when they are eligible for a booster vaccination.  You must have a 6 month gap between your second vaccination and the booster.

Our local vaccination hubs for the boosters will be held on Saturdays and Sundays at:

  • Torrington Park Group Practice (opening 25th September)
  • Longrove Surgery (opening 2nd October)
  • Oakleigh Road Surgery (Opening 2nd October)

The criteria for the booster vaccination:

  • 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)

At your appointment for the booster vaccination you will also be offered a flu vaccination so you do not need to book another appointment for this.
