Eligible groups for Spring boosters include care home residents, people who are 75 and over and those who are immunosuppressed aged 12 and over.
In line with new advice from the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation, the NHS COVID-19 vaccination programme will contact people when it is their turn to be vaccinated.
Once invited by the NHS, people will be able to book their appointment through the National Booking System either online or by calling NHS 119.
As the government continues to ease restrictions, I would like to thank all our patients during these very trying 2 years, your patience and understanding has made it possible for the surgery to continue running. The surgery has had to adapt to new ways of working, at a very quick pace, to ensure the safety of both patients and staff alike. That said, I also want to thank all the team here at Gildersome Health Centre, who have worked throughout the Pandemic, they have overcome their own fears and worries to ensure that patients of Gildersome receive the best possible treatment during these stressful times.
Dr Steven D’Souza.
We will continue to monitor the ongoing situation and adapt where necessary. Once again thank you for your understanding and continued support in protecting patients and staff of Gildersome
