Covid-19 Vaccination

 

Appointments are now available for both AstraZeneca and Pfizer vaccines for clinic patients aged 12+.

 

All patients will be offered an appointment for the second dose of the same vaccine at the time of receiving the first dose.

3rd doses appointments are also available to select patients with severe immuno-compromising conditions as part of their primary course two months after their 2nd dose. (Boosters are not recommended for these patients at this time).

Booster appointments can be booked for other patients aged >18 years 5 months after 2nd dose (4 months from 4th January, and 3 months from 31st January).

Pfizer is the preferred vaccine for booster doses.

Getting ready for your appointment:

Please do not come to your vaccination appointment:

  • if you are feeling unwell with fever, cough, runny nose or other symptoms that could be from COVID-19
  • if you are waiting for COVID-19 test results, or have tested positive for COVID-19
  • if you are a close contact of someone with COVID-19, or
  • if you are in quarantine.

 

PLEASE NOTE: There must be no less than 7 days between Covid and other vaccinations - (doesn't matter which order they are given). If you have had another vaccine in the 7 days before your COVID-19 vaccine appointment, please let us know as we may need to reschedule your appointment.

If you cannot make it to your vaccination appointment, please contact us to arrange a new appointment.
