Covid Boosters - Update 10/01/2022
You may receive a message from NHS 119 to book an appointment for your Covid Booster. Our local centre at the Pirelli Stadium in Burton is offering Covid Booster vaccinations but these are not bookable via 119 or the national online booking service.
Your GP practice will contact you directly, by text message or phone call, with an invitation to book an appointment at these centres. Covid Boosters can be given 12 weeks after your second Covid vaccination, so your practice will contact you at the appropriate time. You can only have the booster earlier for specific clinical reasons (e.g. you are immunosuppressed or have been advised by your consultant or GP to book your vaccination). If you are one of those to whom this applies, your GP surgery will contact you.
