COVID vaccination update – 30/11/2021

Today is the anniversary of the first COVID vaccination.

Current policy is for all over 18s to receive a booster COVID vaccine, 3 months from the 2nd dose.

At the Nelson Health Centre and Wilson Hospital, this will be the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine, irrespective of the previous two doses.

We recommend all over 18s to take up the invite.

You will be contacted by the NHS 3 months after your 2nd dose.

Immunosuppressed patients will continue to be offered a 3rd dose of the vaccine, 8 weeks after a 2nd dose.

We are endeavouring to contact all of our patients in this group, and once you are contacted, please book an appointment with the Nelson Health Centre or Wilson Hospital.

COVID vaccines are safe and save lives!
