Covid Vaccination Programme - Important Update
Posted on 23 Sep 2021
We are pleased to advise that our Covid vaccination booster programme is now in operation.
Initially, this will involve adults aged 50 plus, residential care home residents, front line health care workers and those aged 16-49 with a range of underlying health conditions agreed by NHS England and JCVI along with adult household contacts of immunosuppressed individuals.
Those of our patients in these categories will shortly be receiving an invitation letter from ourselves in respect of making an appointment for this jab, the date of which must in all cases be at least six months after the patient’s previous Covid jab.
We would therefore request that patients do not contact our surgeries to make appointments.
The Government have also confirmed that the Covid vaccination programme has been extended to include single jabs for 12 to 15-year-olds.
We are involved in the delivery of this programme but please note it is being rolled out via high schools.
Parents will be contacted via their school who will arrange the consent procedure and advise dates of clinics so please do not contact us with inquiries on booking these appointments.
In the mean time, we are continuing with our first and second jab vaccination programme with our regular clinics at Jubilee House, Centurion Way, Leyland PR26 6TR.
Opening hours are 8am-8pm from Wednesdays to Saturdays - closed for lunch 1-2pm – latest walk-in arrival 7:40pm, and anyone aged 16 or over is welcome to attend.
