'We know people will be anxious to get their booster jabs following the announcement on Sunday 12th December. Unfortunately, we haven’t had any advance notice of the information before the announcement by the prime minister. We will be trying to organise the logistics of any additional jabs as soon as possible.
In the meantime, please don’t ring reception to try and book a jab. If we are able to arrange extra clinics we will send invites to patients as and when appointments are available.
As things stand currently you are eligible to BOOK a booster if:

- frontline health and social care workers
There are 3 ways for eligible people to book their booster.
