Eight Hambleton GP practices will work together again to deliver the Covid booster programme from Tuesday 5th October at the old Northallerton school & Sixth Form College site in Northallerton in a similar way to the initial vaccine programme which we successfully ran earlier in the year.
This will include our flu programme, enabling co-administration of the vaccines as per the national advice. We won’t be running the Saturday clinics from the surgery.
We will also be able to provide vaccines to those who still need their 1st / 2nd doses, and for those who are severely immunosuppressed that now require a 3rd dose to complete their initial course.
We will follow the JCVI cohorts 1-9 for the booster programme, vaccinating our most vulnerable patients first. If you have received a letter or text from the Mass Vaccination Centres you can book this directly with them or wait until we invite you if you would prefer to attend in Northallerton.
You will receive a text message, telephone call or letter when it is your turn. You will be able to have both vaccines at the same time.
Please don’t contact the surgery, we are awaiting further details and will provide more information shortly.
Please may we remind you that if you have any Covid symptoms, you should get a PCR test. A negative Lateral Flow test does not exclude Covid.
The main symptoms of the Delta Variant of Covid are
-You and your household must follow the isolation guidance.
Lateral flow tests are only for screening purposes if you are not symptomatic. If you get a positive result from a lateral flow test you should immediately isolate and book a PCR test via the Government website or by ringing 119.
