Spring Booster

People aged 75 years and older, residents in care homes for older people, and those with weakened immune systems will be offered a spring booster of coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccine. Appointments will be available at your practice very soon.

This spring booster is being offered as a precaution to those at extremely high risk, most of whom received their first booster around 6 months ago. If the number of infections increases over the summer, this booster should help to reduce your risk of being admitted to hospital with COVID-19

You may receive a letter from the NHS containing information about the spring booster and details of how to book via the national booking system. Please support your surgery by receiving your booster dose at the practice. Information on clinic dates will be sent out very soon.

Please do not contact the practice, we will be in touch as soon as we have had confirmation from the programme that we can proceed with invites.

You may be aware of a separate vaccination service operating at the Greenway Centre. Please be advised that this is not attached to the practice and is run by a pharmacy from the midlands.

Please support your surgery by attending the practice for all your vaccinations.

Vaccinations for 5-11 year olds

Children aged 5 to 11 who are clinically extremely vulnerable or household contacts of people who are severely immunosuppressed are being offered two doses of a paediatric version of the Pfizer (Comirnaty) Covid-19 vaccine. Parents and carers of children in this position have been contacted by their consultant, GP or national letter with information about how to book a vaccination at a dedicated clinic. Full details of eligibility can be found in the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation guidance, in table 4.

NHS England will soon be contacting parents of healthy 5-11 year olds inviting them to book their child’s covid vaccine. This service is not available in the practice. Please use this link which details all 5-11 year old clinics available to book across Bristol.
