Covid-19 Booster Programme Update




Across Kent and Medway the NHS and its partners are working extremely hard to roll out the  COVID-19 booster vaccination programme to our communities.

All adults are eligible from Monday 13 December, and you will be able to book via the National Booking System from Wednesday 15 December.

You can book your booster for 3 months from the date of second vaccine, and you can access the National Booking System to book the appointment from 2 months.

We are working at pace to increase the availability of appointments so that there are plenty of options for people on the National Booking System. Some local vaccination services will also contact patients directly.

New appointments are being added every day across our vaccination services. Further  availability will come online from Wednesday 15 December.

We will be considering further steps to increase what we can offer again, including opening  later and on more days.

All of these appointments will be added to the National Booking System and so we  encourage everyone who is aged 18 and over, is yet to have their booster and who is  approaching 3 months from your second vaccine to use the National Booking System to  arrange your appointment when you are able to do so.

In terms of any planned appointments with this surgery, there are no changes at the current time and everyone should attend your planned appointments as normal. If we need to make any changes, we will contact you directly.
