Covid-19 Booster Booking Information Posted on 18 Oct 2021

Forest House Surgery are holding two Covid-19 booster vaccination clinics on the 30th October and 27th November for eligible patients who are registered with us.

Unfortunately we cannot vaccinate all of our patients and when the clinics are full we will need to direct you to the following:

 

People in the groups below are eligible for a Booster Covid Vaccine 6 months (26 weeks) after their 2nd initial dose.

·        those living in residential care homes for older adults

·        all adults aged 50 years or over

·        frontline health and social care workers

·        all those aged 16 to 49 years with underlying health conditions that put them at higher risk of severe COVID-19

·        adult carers and those experiencing homelessness

·        adult household contacts of immunosuppressed individuals

Appointments for Booster vaccinations at Charnwood Borough Council can be booked by clicking on this link:

Charnwood Vaccine Clinic

Alternative locations can be booked by calling 119 or going to www.nhs.uk

You can also use these details to book 1st and 2nd doses if still needed. 2nd doses are due 8 weeks after the 1st dose.

Please note if you book for your 2nd dose or Booster too early you will be turned away by the clinic

The vaccines used for booster doses are Pfizer or Moderna and the type of booster vaccine does not depend on what you received for your first two doses.

If you believe that you are unable to have either of these vaccines for medical reasons please contact your GP surgery to discuss the matter.
