Covid-19 Booster Update December 2021
Across Hampshire and the Isle of Wight the NHS and its partners are working extremely hard to roll out the COVID-19 booster vaccination programme to our communities.
You can book your booster from three months after your second vaccine, and you can access the National Booking System to book the appointment from two months.
We are working at pace to increase the availability of appointments so that there are plenty of options for people on the National Booking System. Some local vaccination services will also contact patients directly.New appointments are being added every day across our vaccination services. We will be working with all of our sites to take further steps to increase what they can offer again, including opening later and on more days.
All of these appointments will be added to the National Booking System and so we encourage everyone who is aged 18 and over, is yet to have their booster and who is approaching 3 months from your second vaccine to use the National Booking System to arrange your appointment when you are able to do so.
If you are yet to have your first or second dose of the vaccination then please do come forward and have these.
In terms of any planned appointments with <insert name of the GP practice>, there are no changes at the current time and everyone should attend your planned appointments as normal. If we need to make any changes, we will contact you directly.
We urge you keep our phone lines free for patients to call with non-vaccination healthcare needs. The NHS will share details on other ways to access booster appointments across our communities as soon as possible.
