COVID vaccination programme - Autumn Booster Programme update

The vaccination programme is now solely located at:

The Health Hub, Festival place, Basingstoke, RG21 7BA

 

Information about the programme can be found here https://www.thehealthhubbasingstoke.co.uk/

Vaccines are bookable by appointment only. We no longer offer walk ins during this period. These can be booked by NBS which is available by calling 119 or visiting www.nhs.uk/covid-vaccination

We will be administering both Covid and Flu vaccinations for our eligible patients. 

Vaccination is also available for those who are housebound – please contact your practice to arrange this. We would ask patients to consider carefully whether they are able to travel to our site, our general practice services are under extreme pressure and the vaccination service is in addition to our normal work.

Eligibility can be found here https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/covid-19-vaccination-autumn-booster-resources/a-guide-to-the-covid-19-autumn-booster#who-is-being-offered-an-autumn-booster

 Limited appointments available at the A31 Practices (booked appointments ONLY) for those who will struggle to get to the vaccination site.
