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. This is recommended even if you had a different vaccine for your first and second dose. We are not receiving deliveries of any other type of booster vaccine.

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.
