Message to our Patients: Update on the COVID-19 Booster Programme

Across Berkshire the NHS and its partners are working extremely hard to roll out the COVID-19 booster vaccination programme to our communities.

All adults are eligible from Monday 13th December, and you will be able to book via the National Booking System from Wednesday 15th December.

You can book your booster for 3 months from the date of second vaccine, and you can access the National Booking System to book the appointment from 2 months.

New appointments are being added every day on the National booking service and further availability will come online from Wednesday 15th December. They will be taking further steps to increase what they can offer, including opening later and on more days.

All of these appointments will be added to the National Booking System so we encourage everyone who is aged 18 and over, is yet to have their booster and who is approaching 3 months from your second vaccine to use the National Booking System to arrange your appointment when you are able to do so. We are in the process of planning additional booster clinics at the surgery for those who are due, so please keep an eye on the website for details.

In terms of any planned appointments with Parkside Family Practice, there are no changes at the current time and everyone should attend your planned appointments as normal. If we need to make any changes, we will contact you directly.

Our reception team do not know anymore than this, so please help us keep our phone lines free.
