COVID-19 Vaccination Booster Information

National Booking Service

The National Booking Service for Covid-19 Booster vaccinations has now gone live in England.  This can be found at http://www.nhs.uk/covid-vaccination or by calling 119.  This allows eligible people to book in for their Covid-19 vaccinations at one of the live vaccination sites.

Text messages and letters have begun to go out to eligible people from 20th September 2021.  These are being sent in phases, so not everyone will get an invite straight away.  People are only able to book once they receive an invitation, so please wait for your invitation before attempting to book in.

Please note that while there are sites in our area, Saltaire and Windhill Medical Partnership will NOT be providing Covid-19 Booster vaccinations on site.  Please see below for more information on this.

While we are very proud of the work we did in delivering the initial Covid-19 vaccination campaign while we were in lockdown, we are now prioritising the delivery of core general practice.  This means we will not be delivering the Covid-19 Boosters from our sites.  The partnership have considered this decision very carefully but feel it is in our patient’s best interests to concentrate on the management of acute illness and long term conditions this Autumn and Winter.  We will be delivering a comprehensive flu vaccination programme for all patients age 50 and over in September and October 2021.

Further information about Covid-19 Booster vaccinations in our area will be made available as soon as they have been clarified by NHS England.

Your understanding and patience during these challenging times is appreciated.
