COVID VACCINE NOTICE
National Guidance on Vaccinations
The Government has set out that appointments for a second dose of the COVID-19 vaccine will be brought forward from 12 to 8 weeks for the remaining people in cohort 10 (people in their 40s) who have yet to receive their second dose.
Patients over the age of 21 can book their vaccination appointments through the National Booking System (https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/coronavirus-vaccination/book-coronavirus-vaccination/).
Unfortunately the surgery is not able to assist with queries regarding the national booking service.
In line with JCVI guidance, the National Booking Service now allows people in this age group, without an underlying health condition, to book into an appointment offering an alternative to the AstraZeneca vaccine.
Pregnant women: the new NBS functionality will enable pregnant women to book appointments at a site that offers the Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna vaccine following a series of screening questions. This is in line with JCVI guidance and the Green Book.
