COVID Information Point

Delivery of National Booster Programme

Following on from the Prime Minister’s TV address to the Nation last night, practices in CHOC Primary Care Network are awaiting further news from NHS England so that delivery of the booster programme can restart from GP surgeries in the area.

As of today, we still have not received ANY information at all regarding the matter from NHS England.

We will update this website just as soon as we have any further information.

In the interim, it is important that all eligible individuals continue to book their Covid-19 booster vaccinations by dialling 119 or using the online booking system at the link below:
