3rd (booster) Covid jab
From 25nd September the Practice will be starting to give the Covid booster jabs to patients. This will be the Pfizer vaccine (There is no cholce) It does not matter which vaccine you had before this one but it is important that there is a gap of at least 6 months between the last dose and the booster dose. Our intention is to start with the oldest and most vulnerable patients and work our way down to 50 year olds. This program is likely to take till end of December. We intend to use the Feilding Palmer site to give the vaccines. Please do not telephone to book a jab. We will concact you when your turn comes.
Not all medical practices have opted in to give Covid booster jabs. We have agreed to vaccinate our patients but are unable to accomodate patients not registered with the practice
