Dear patients,

Please try and keep the following dates free so that when we start inviting patients, you will be ready to book your appt.

We are aiming to send out invitations soon by Text, phone call or Letter. Please DO NOT CALL US, WE WILL CALL, TEXT OR WRITE TO YOU.

You will be given a booster dose of a vaccine made by Sanofi and approved in the UK. These vaccines have been updated since the original vaccines and target different COVID-19 variants.

The Sanofi vaccine contains an adjuvant (a chemical used to improve the immune response to the virus). This vaccine will be offered to older people, who may respond less well to vaccines. The adjuvant in the COVID-19 vaccine is similar to the one used in the flu vaccine which is routinely given to over 65 year olds.

COVID-19 is more serious in older people and in people with certain underlying health conditions. For these reasons, people aged 75 years and over, those in care homes, and those aged 5 years and over with a weakened immune system are being offered a spring booster of COVID-19 vaccine.
