COVID-19 Vaccination Programme

Covid-19 Vaccine update: October 2021


Please note that East Barnwell Health Centre will not be holding Covid Booster vaccination clinics. These will be offered at large NHS vaccination centres locally. Booster vaccine doses will be available on the NHS for people most at risk from COVID-19 who have already had 2 doses of a vaccine. The NHS will let you know when it’s your turn to have one. If you are eligible you will be able to book your appointment 6 months after receiving your second dose.

For further information on Covid-19 Booster vaccinations, please visit: Covid Vaccination Booster Programme

Still need to have your first or second Covid vaccine dose?

Anyone over the age of 18 can now book a Covid vaccination at one of the large vaccination centres. Appointments can be booked by ringing 119 or by visiting  NHS Covid Vaccination.

Patients aged 16-18 can obtain a Covid Vaccination at one of the walk in clinic- information can be found HERE

 Information about vaccinations for the extremely clinical vulnerable children age 12-15 can be found HERE


Visiting our practice?  Please continue to wear a face covering and socially distance

Febuary 2022
Please note that we don’t yet know whether the rules for the NHS will change.

So, until this is confirmed, please continue to:
– wear your mask in the surgery
– keep distance when in the surgery
– arrive no longer than five minutes before your appointment time
– avoid attending for routine care when you have covid
– tell us if you have covid symptoms or are covid positive when you have an appointment

That way we can keep all patients safe – including those who cannot be vaccinated or whose immune systems are compromised/weak.


Patients are asked to continue to wear a face covering, unless they are exempt, and to follow social distancing when visiting our GP Practice.

This follows the national Infection Prevention Control (IPC) Guidance for all healthcare settings and will help to ensure the safety of our staff and patients at all times.

Thank you for your continued support.
