COVID Vaccination Booster

4th October 2021

Rollout of the Covid Booster Vaccination in Somerset

The NHS has started delivering Covid booster jabs to people in eligible groups and is now inviting eligible people, who had their second Covid jab at least six months ago.

People do not need to contact the NHS to arrange their booster vaccine. The NHS will be in touch when people become eligible for the jab.

The vaccination hub at Wellington Hospital will not be delivering booster vaccination so people will be invited by the National Booking Service to attend an alternative vaccination centre. The NHS will contact people by letter or text, when they become eligible to have the booster vaccine and appointments can then be made through the National Booking Service.

Please do not contact your GP practice regarding an appointment for the booster vaccine as they are unable to help you with this.

NHS staff, patients and visitors must continue to wear face coverings in healthcare settings, unless they are exempt.

Please help us reduce the risk of infection for our staff and patients by following this guidance.
