COVID-19 BOOSTER: following updated guidance from the JCVI, the NHS will shortly set out how staff will expand the booster programme – this includes how booster jabs will be given in priority order so that the most vulnerable people are protected first, while also increasing capacity to vaccinate more people in a shorter space of time.
As you can appreciate, information is emerging and we will continue to work in line with NHS guidelines. NHS guidelines are currently being confirmed and we will invite you for your vaccination at the Altrincham Health & Wellbeing Centre when you are eligible. The booster will be offered in order of descending age groups, with priority given to the vaccination of older adults and those in a COVID-19 at-risk group. For more information please click here
We are currently receiving high numbers of calls regarding the latest announcement. Please be assured we will invite you for your vaccination when you are eligible. Please do not contact your practice.
FLU VACCINATION: patients will be invited to attend their annual flu vaccination appointments at their own GP practice. These invitations are being sent as flu supplies arrive at the GP practices.
Please wait to be invited for your appointment rather than contact your GP practice
COVID-19 VACCINATIONS IN SCHOOL FOR AGES 12-15: if your child has missed their COVID-19 vaccination in school, please contact the school nurse not the GP practice. The COVID-19 school vaccination programme is being delivered by school immunisation teams not the GP practice. Click here for further information
