Covid-19 Spring Booster Campaign

Only patients who meet the following criteria will be eligible:

  • People aged 75 years and older
  • Residents in care homes for older people,
  • Those aged 12 years and over with a weakened immune system

It is very important to note that it has been confirmed that Health and Social workers, Carers, Housebound patients who are under the age of 75, those with long term health conditions under the age of 75 and those who live with people who have a weakened immune system will NOT receive a vaccine as part of the Spring Campaign.
However, if you have not completed your Primary vaccine course (1st, 2nd & booster dose), please ensure you still book in.
The Spring booster vaccine is going to be mainly the Moderna vaccine and we will not be able to guarantee a specific vaccine on certain days.
You are eligible for your Spring booster around 6 months (and not before 3 months) since your last dose of vaccines. You should receive a text message with a link to book your vaccine. Alternatively, you can call 0333 370 4111 to book at a local vaccine centre or 119 for the National booking centres.


We will be unable to vaccinate you if:

  • You have had covid in the last four weeks (16+)
  • You have had covid in the last 12 weeks (aged 12 – 16)
  • If you have a temperature or feel unwell

Who is eligible for a COVID-19 vaccination?

Everyone aged 12 and over, and some children aged 5 to 11, can get a 1st and 2nd dose of the COVID-19 vaccine.

People aged 16 and over, and some children aged 12 to 15, can also get a booster dose.

People aged 12 and over who had a severely weakened immune system when they had their first 2 doses, will be offered a 3rd dose and a booster (4th dose).

Where and when are these being held?

Due to vaccine transport restrictions we are working with our PCN team and holding clinics at Durrington Health Centre. We are aiming to run weekly clinics but these are subject to deliveries.

We will be arranging to visit our registered housebound patients and care homes and will be liaising with these patients directly

How can I book?

Please call the national booking service on 119 or book online by visiting the following link - https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/coronavirus-vaccination/book-coronavirus-vaccination/

Which vaccine will I get?

In line with the JCVI advice, we will be giving Pfizer vaccines and at some of our clinics we will be giving Moderna vaccines.

Will I need to wait afterwards?

No. If you feel well after receiving your vaccine you will be allowed to leave the surgery.

I’m unable to attend the clinics you are offering – what can I do?

Please use the online national booking system or call 119 and you can arrange to attend an alternative site. You can only book if it’s been at least 3 months since your 2nd dose

I’ve recently had Covid can I still book in for my booster?

If you are over 18 please do not book into a clinic within 28 days of your positive covid result. If you are age 12-17 please do not book into a clinic within 12 weeks of your positive covid result.

If I have the Covid-19 vaccination, then I later need to take a test for the virus, could it trigger a ‘false’ positive result?

No – the vaccine will not affect the result of a test for Covid-19.

Can I have another vaccine, such as flu, within 7 days of my Covid Booster?

Yes, with the exception of Shingles vaccine please leave a 7 day gap between any shingles and COVID vaccine bookings.
