Vaccine Programme Update

31st August 2023

You may have heard on the news that the Covid vaccine booster programme is being brought forward due to concerns about rising cases and a new variant.

Kingswood Health Centre are offering flu-only clinics on the 16th and 30th of September as these were already arranged and are nearly fully booked. We have not yet had confirmation of when Covid vaccine will arrive and are being asked to prioritise care homes and housebound patients first.

We will be holding Covid vaccine clinics on the 14th and 28th of October. There will also be some evening clinics held during the week with dates to be confirmed. Patients also wanting a flu jab can have both vaccines in the same appointment at these clinics.

The booking system for the October clinics is not yet live so we are unable to send out invites just yet. However we would encourage eligible patients to put these dates in the diary and we will send out invitations as soon as possible. If you have booked a flu jab for September and would prefer to have both vaccines at the same time, please cancel your flu appointment. We will invite you to a new appointment for both vaccines as soon as possible.

Please continue to support your local GP surgery by having your vaccines with us.
