Covid-19 Autumn Booster Programme

(September 2022 – November 2022)

We are pleased to announce the start of the next phase of the covid-19 booster programme for our patients.

Vaccine clinics will start from Saturday 17th September at the Royal South Hants and we will be offering appointments to those who are most vulnerable first. National guidance states this includes all over 75-year olds and those that are aged 18+ and immunocompromised. As the programme continues further cohorts will be invited (those over 50, carers or household contacts of people who are immunocompromised).

Similar to previous covid-19 vaccinations, eligible patients will receive an invite via txt message on their mobile phone. The surgery will text eligible patients an appointment link as soon as appointments become available and they will phone patients who do not have a mobile number registered on the system. We encourage patients to please book in as soon as you receive this link.

At this stage we are unable to accept walk-ins. Please only attend if you have a booked appointment. Unfortunately, we are also unable to vaccinate anyone under 18 years old who are immunocompromised or carers.

Alternatively from 12th September patients can book to their covid-19 booster vaccination elsewhere by using the NHS national booking service website. Covid-19 booster vaccines will be available at a variety of other sites until November.

If you have any questions about this stage of the covid-19 vaccinations, please contact surgery reception.
