Update: 22nd November
COVID-19 booster vaccine
Please do not phone us to ask when your Covid Booster appointment is, as we do not have that information. We are sorry for the long delays answering our phones as 100s of people continue to phone in to ask about boosters.
Patients will receive an invite for their Covid booster in turn, in order of the priority groups. This will be a text, call or letter from our local Primary Care Network to attend St Leonards Hospital. Please DO NOT contact us to get an appointment as we simply don’t know when your vaccine will be available.
You can book your booster via the National Booking Service instead at: www.nhs.uk – Book or manage your coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccination or by calling 119.
Housebound patients: due to logistics and clinical capacity we do not have dates for housebound Covid boosters to be done yet. All patients wherever possible should attend St Leonards when invited or book via the National Booking Service on the link above or calling 119.
More information on the booster can be found at: www.dorsetccg.nhs.uk/booster-vaccine.
Many thanks for your help with this.
