Covid Vaccine Update

We very strongly encourage everyone who is eligible for covid or flu vaccines to have them.  

  • For patients age 75 and older, and those who are immunosuppressed as defined in the immunosuppresion box in table 3 of this document, appointments for a SPRING BOOSTER are available from 21st March.  Ideally this should be given 6 months after the previous booster dose, but can be given from 3 months.
  • We have pfizer vaccine appointments at 19 Beaumont Street on all the Tuesdays in April - please call reception to book
  • For those able to travel to other sites Covid vaccine appointments are available via the National Booking Service or by calling 119. Local venues include the Kassam stadium and Boots Cornmarket. Sites offering walk in vaccines can be found here.
  • Vaccinations for  housebound patients will be delivered by a central visting service in late April - we will call eligble patients to advise you of the dates

CHILDREN AGE 5-11:

  • We are only able to vaccinate high risk children and believe we have contacted all these people.The eligibility criteria can be found on page 22 of this document. If you think your child is eligble and you have not heard from us please email practicemanger.nbs@nhs.net
  • We are not able to vaccinate other children - National Booking Service online booking will open for them in due course

IMMUNOSUPPRESSED INDIVIDUALS:  

  • The criteria for who should have a third primary dose (which is not the same as a booster) are on page 23 of this guidance. If you think you are eligible and haven't yet been contacted please email practicemanager.nbs@nhs.net and we will be able to help.
  • If you have already had your 3rd primary dose you should have a booster from 91 days after your 3rd dose. You can book an appointment via the national booking service or go to a walk in clinic. You will need to show evidence that you are immunosuppressed.
