COVID-19 BOOSTER UPDATES

COVID-19 BOOSTER: we are inviting eligible patients for a COVID-19 booster (which provides longer-term protection against becoming seriously ill with COVID-19) at Altrincham Health & Wellbeing Centre in line with official NHS England guidance. Please wait to be invited for your appointment. Please do not attend unless you have an appointment.

Following updated guidance from the JCVI (29 November 2021), the NHS will shortly set out how staff will expand the booster programme – this includes how booster jabs will be given in priority order so that the most vulnerable people are protected first, while also increasing capacity to vaccinate more people in a shorter space of time. As you can appreciate, information is emerging and we will continue to work in line with NHS guidelines. The booster will be offered in order of descending age groups, with priority given to the vaccination of older adults and those in a COVID-19 at-risk group. For more information please click here

We are currently receiving high numbers of calls regarding the latest announcement. Please be assured we will invite you for your vaccination when you are eligible. Please do not contact your practice.

FLU VACCINATION: patients will be invited to attend their annual flu vaccination appointments at Park Medical Practice. These invitations are being sent as flu supplies arrive at the GP practice. Please wait to be invited for your appointment rather than contact your GP practice 

COVID-19 VACCINATIONS IN SCHOOL FOR AGES 12-15: if your child has missed their COVID-19 vaccination in school, please contact the school nurse not the GP practice. The COVID-19 school vaccination programme is being delivered by school immunisation teams not the GP practice. Click here for further information
