Update on the COVID-19 booster vaccination programme
We know that following the national Government announcement that the COVID-19 booster vaccination programme is due to be opened to a wider group of people that many of you understandably are keen to know when you will be able to have your vaccination. 

The NHS is working quickly to respond to the new variant (Omicron) and to put in place the next and most complex phase of the successful COVID-19 vaccination programme.

Following updated guidance from the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) the NHS will shortly set out how staff will expand the booster programme – this will include how booster jabs will be given in priority order so that the most vulnerable people are protected first, while also increasing capacity to vaccinate millions more people in a shorter space of time. 

The NHS will contact you when you are due to book in for your lifesaving booster vaccination, and when you get the call, it’s vital that people come forward as quickly as possible.

Could we please ask people NOT TO call the practice to ask about their vaccine as this takes away our staff from responding to people who need health care. Please could we ask you to continue to remain patient and respectful with our staff as they work hard to support the community.

COVID-19 Booster Vaccine North Hampshire – we will contact you when it is your turn

In line with the latest national JCVI guidance, we are now rolling out the COVID-19 booster vaccine programme across North Hampshire to those who are eligible – we will be following the guidelines in the order and eligibility given.

The North Hampshire CCG has been working hard to get ready for the next phase of the roll out of the life-saving vaccine.

Please wait to be contacted by us to be invited for your booster. Please don’t contact us, we will contact you.

 It is important to note that even if you fall within one of the early cohorts (due to your age or existing health conditions) you will only be eligible for your COVID-19 booster vaccine at least 6 months after your second vaccine dose.

You will receive a text message from us when it is your turn to book. You will be asked to book via the National Booking Service and you will not be able to book until you are at 6 months or beyond the date of your second dose.

We will be delivering the booster doses of the vaccine from Jameson House in North Hampshire and this is your local GP led vaccination site.

Telephones

In the past few months the number of calls we have been receiving has increased, resulting in all our lines becoming busy (previously we always had some capacity). We have now become aware, dependant on the network you are calling from, that patients are either being informed they have dialled a wrong number or the number is unobtainable. Unfortunately there is nothing we can do about this immediately but we are working with our system supplier to establish how this can avoided.

In the meantime please do continue to try as our lines are working.
