COVID BOOSTER VACCINES

Our surgery is part of the Tonbridge Primary Care Network and we took part in the earlier phase of vaccinations for Covid 19. We are currently not involved in the Booster Vaccination Programme. This is because we are trying our best to concentrate on providing the best service and availability of appointments with our nurses, GPs and other Healthcare professionals at this time of unprecedented demand on primary care services.
You can get a booster covid vaccine locally by using the National Booking Service : https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/coronavirus-vaccination/book-coronavirus-vaccination/ or by phoning 119 once you become eligible. You will only become eligible for a booster vaccine if you had your second dose of a Covid 19 vaccine more than six months or 182 days ago.  
 
Local Pharmacies which are bookable via 119 and online using the link above are:
