Attending your Flu & Covid vaccination appointment

This year the Practice will be administering flu and Covid vaccinations on site. All eligible patients have been contacted. You can decide whether to have one or both vaccines on the day.

Appointments are available online to book via the NHS App. Alternatively you can call the Practice after 2pm when our phone lines are less busy.

To enable the smooth running of our weekend vaccination clinics please read following information:

  • Our vaccine deliveries have arrived, we will be giving the Moderna booster at all sessions, more information about the vaccine can be found in the factsheet below.
  • It is important you attend on time for your appointment but please do not arrive early or late. This will help us to manage car parking, maintain social distancing and avoid unnecessary queues forming outside.
  • Please ensure you wear a face mask/covering before entering the surgery. If you are exempt, we would appreciate you wearing a loose scarf over your mouth and nose.
  • Please attend your appointment alone unless you have a mobility problem and need assistance. Otherwise we request family and friends wait outside whilst you have your vaccine.
  • We request that you wear loose fitting clothes so the clinician can easily administer the vaccine in an efficient manner. Once inside the practice, please take off any coats and outer garments so you are ready.
  • Vaccines will be administered from within our consulting rooms, with the window and door left open. To maintain infection control, we aim to vaccinate most people whilst standing. If you require to sit for the vaccination, please make staff aware.
  • If you choose to only have one vaccine on the day, you will need to rebook your second vaccine via the NHS App or by calling the surgery, appointments cannot be made on the day of the clinic.
  • Please do not ask the receptionist or clinician about any other issues, e.g. booking appointments, requesting results etc. Again, this will help us reduce the time you spend in the practice and reduce the risk of infection.
