Covid – Spring Vaccinations

The practice started offering the spring COVID-19 vaccinations yesterday.
COVID is more serious in older people and in people with certain underlying health conditions. For these reasons, people aged 75 years and over, those in care homes, and those aged 18 years and over with a weakened immune system are being offered a spring booster of COVID-19 vaccine at the Alresford Surgery.
You should be offered an appointment between April and June, with those at highest risk being called in first.
You will be invited to have your booster around 6 months from your last dose, but you can have it from 3 months.
If you are turning 75 years of age between April and June, you will be called for vaccination during the campaign; you do not have to wait for your birthday.
*If you are under 18 years of age & think you maybe eligible, you will need to be vaccinated by the nation booking service – Please call 119.*
Text messages have gone out to those we have mobile numbers & consent for.
We are also calling eligible patients offering them their vaccination.
