Covid  and Flu Vaccine Update

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

  • Covid Booster vaccines, as well as first and second doses,  are widely available via the National Booking Service or by calling 119 and at walk in sites
  • Primary immunisation course covid vaccines given overseas are often not picked up by the national booking service. If you had your intial doses overseas and believe you are due a booster but can't book online please contact 119 to discuss further. If 119 cannot help your best course of action is to attend a walk in site with your overseas documentation once you are at the appropriate time for a booster.

THIRD DOSE FOR IMMUNOSUPPRESSED INDIVIDUALS:  The criteria for who should have a third primary dose (which is not the same as a booster) are on page 22 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.

NHS ENGLAND PROOF OF VACCINATION:  Information on demonstrating your covid vaccination status is here. If you cannot access this link, or the NHS App, please call 119 who will arrange a letter for you. We are not able to provide documents relating to vaccination status and kindly ask that you do not contact us about this matter.

COVID VACCINES GIVEN OVERSEAS : If you have had covid vaccinations overseas we can record these on your NHS records. Please send copies of your vaccine documentation to practicemanager.nbs@nhs.net. Please note that we are not allowed to enter these  in such a way that they appear in your NHS Covid Pass - instead you will need to use the documents you were given at the time of your vaccine, or vaccine passports from that country, as evidence of vaccination.

FLU VACCINES: 

  • When vaccine supplies permit we run flu vaccine clinics available at 19 Beaumont Street - if you are eligble you will be sent an SMS inviting you to book this. If you  cannot book online at https://www.patientaccess.com/please contact reception.
  • This page of the NHS website lists who is eliglble for NHS flu vaccines. 
  • Flu vaccines are also available at local pharmacies
