Covid-19 Booster & Flu Vaccines

IMPORTANT INFORMATION

Covid booster and Flu Vaccinations clinics have now been organised and invitations are being sent to patients who are due their booster now. These vaccinations (one in each arm) will be given at the same appointment.  The covid booster cannot be given until 6 months after you received your second covid vaccine.   You are likely to be offered a full dose of the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine (or, less likely, a half dose of the Moderna vaccine).  This follows scientific evidence showing that both of these vaccines provide a strong booster response, regardless of which vaccine you initially had.

We are currently working to staff these clinics, so please bear with us.  We will be contacting eligible patients either by text, phone or letter inviting you to book an appointment a the Babington Vaccination Hub.

If you are a Carer or Health and Social Care Worker and it is more than 6 months since your 2nd dose of Covid vaccine and you are eligible for a booster you can let us know using this link

Eligible Under 18’s are the exception and will be offered the Nasal Flu vaccination at the Duffield Surgery.  Again, invitations will be sent by text, phone or letter.


Dear Patients,

 

We would appreciate it if you could take the time to read the latest Appletree Update.
