Face masks and social distancing: Due to the rising prevalence of COVID-19 in our communities, we strongly encourage healthcare staff and visitors to wear a face covering in all of our settings, particularly in clinical areas and those with high footfall. Please exercise a common-sense approach and personal responsibility to help us reduce the impact of COVID-19 on our patients, workforce and services. In addition to wearing a face covering, it is important to continue to maintain social distancing where possible. Thank you for your continued support and co-operation at this time. We continue to regularly review our advice based on prevalence in our communities and our hospitals.

Spring Covid booster vaccine

Page updated: 22.06.22

The spring Covid booster deadline is approaching! Please pass this message onto family and friends who may need to see it.

If you’ve been invited for the spring Covid booster vaccine, please take up this offer by the deadline of Thursday, June 30th, 2022.

Missed your appointment? Don’t worry. Book another appointment by calling 01792 200492 or 01639 862323 between 9am and 5pm, Monday to Saturday.

Why is there a deadline? It’s so those who can have the spring booster will have a long enough gap between this and the autumn 2022 booster, if they are also eligible for that.

Who gets the spring booster? In line with Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) guidance, those aged 75 and over, older care home residents and those aged 12+ who are immunosuppressed.

Celebrating your 75th birthday before or on June 30th? You can have the spring booster too, provided it’s been at least 12 weeks since your last vaccine. If you haven’t received an invite or have missed your appointment, book a slot by calling 01792 200492 or 01639 86­2323 between 9am and 5pm, Monday to Saturday.

What if I’m ill? If you have or will miss your spring booster appointment due to Covid or another illness, you can re-book up to July 31st by calling 01792 200492 or 01639 862323 between 9am and 5pm, Monday to Saturday. Remember, over 18s need to wait 28 days from the day of a positive Covid test before having a vaccine.

What’s happening in the autumn? The JCVI’s interim advice on the autumn 2022 Covid vaccine booster dose is that it should be for more vulnerable adults alongside frontline social care and healthcare workers in order to maintain protection over winter against severe Covid-19.

We’ll release more details in the near future.
