Covid Vaccination Update Spring 2022

We will be offering Spring Covid boosters (4th doses/ 2nd booster) to all patients aged 75 and over who are 6 months since their last booster (and who have not had Covid in the past month). This applies to anybody who turns 75 by the 30th June 2022. We have scheduled two Saturdays to try and accommodate when most people are due- 23rd and 30th April. These sessions will be at Audley Health Centre. We will contact people by text or phone call to book these appointments and will start doing this contacting from Wednesday 30th March onwards. There is also the option for people to use the National Booking System (NBS) if that suits them better.

Patients who are immunosuppressed will also be eligible for another booster 6 months after their last dose. In the majority of cases, this will represent a fifth dose of vaccine.

We will also be vaccinating our care home residents (in Wilbraham House and The Poplars) on Friday 8th April.

There is always the option to book a 1st, 2nd or booster dose. To do this, email vac.audley@nhs.net stating which vaccine dose you want to book.
