Covid-19 infections rates are currently rising across England with the latest test-and-trace figures showing 45% more infections week-on-week. The first dose of the vaccine offers a high level of protection, but to get maximum and longer-lasting protection, everyone will need to get a second dose.

Advice is for all patients aged 30 and below is not to be offered the AZ vaccine , you can however book an appointment if you wish to have it as it is still patient choice.

Please contact us if you have not been called for your 2nd dose having had your first dose up to the end of May.
