Vaccine Update – The Orchard Medical Centre – Network4

Following the latest Government update on the new Omicron variant

From 13th December all over 18s who had their second dose more than 3 months ago will be eligible for a Booster.

We strongly encourage you to have the booster to ensure maximum protection against the new variant.

Please do not phone your GP surgery, we will contact you when ready.

We were only informed of these changes on Sunday 12th Dec, the same as you.

All vaccination centres/practices will need a little time to organise the necessary staff and to obtain additional vaccines.

Alternatively, Please call 119 or book online whilst waiting for an invite from your GP Surgery. – Book or manage a coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccination.

This may mean prioritising vaccines over some non-urgent work, however, we will continue to offer a safe and responsive service for our patients.

More information will be released via our social media, websites and other formats as soon as possible so please watch this space.

Please be patient and please be kind to your surgery’s staff.

Thank you for your continued support during this challenging time.

The Orchard Medical Centre Team.
