Covid boosters available at the Meads for Meads' patients
Posted on 28 Sep 2021
We are pleased to announce that we will be running our first covid booster vaccine session on Saturday 25 September at the Meads Medical Centre. This will be for Meads registered patients only.
Covid boosters can only be given to patients aged over 50, and/or those in a clinically extremely vulnerable group (also known as previously shielding patients). It is also a requirement that it has been at least six months since you had your second covid immunisation.
We have 300 appointments available on 25 September and these will be offered according to age/ clinical risk/ earliest date of second covid vaccine.
Most of our patients who received their second covid vaccine before March 2nd 2021, and who are aged over 80 years, will be receiving an invite for Saturday’s covid booster clinic. Please standby for receipt of texts/ phone calls inviting you to an appointment- this won’t be before Monday.
If you believe you are in the above category (aged 80 plus and received your second vaccine before 2 March) then you are welcome to call the surgery and request to be booked in. Please could we respectfully request you telephone after 11am, hopefully this being once the ‘morning rush’ is over.
Further covid booster clinic dates will be on:
Sunday 11 October
Saturday 13 November
Saturday 4 December
These clinics should offer an opportunity for all those vaccinated before 4 June (with their second vaccine), aged 50 and over and or in a clinically extremely vulnerable group to receive their booster vaccines shortly after their 6 months second vaccination date.
It is not yet possible to book into the October, November or December clinics. Further information to follow nearer the time.
If there are 16 or 17 year old patients who wish to receive their first covid vaccines with us, then from Monday 20 September (after 11am) you are welcome to telephone us and request an appointment for your covid vaccine.
A lot of information here but hope it helps bring lots of peace of mind
