From Monday 20th Sept 2021 some patients will start to receive letters and texts about booking for their COVID 19 vaccine booster. Booking will be by going on to the National Booking Service website or by calling 119. These letters are being sent out by the NHS in order of eligibility as there needs to be a 6 month gap between having your 2nd dose and the booster. Please wait until you have had a letter or text from the NHS before trying to book your booster. Please do not phone the surgery to try to book your appointment. We will not be delivering this booster program at the surgery. The National booking service website can be accessed on the following link National Booking Service - NHS Digital
Sites offering the booster include Stocksbridge Leisure Centre and the Sheffield Vaccination Centre on Longley Lane, S5 7JN. (Please do not phone the Leisure Centre to book an appointment.)
Please protect yourselves by booking for a booster when you receive an invitation.
We are contacting patients mainly via a text or phone call so please ensure we have your up to date contact details.
