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. 

The COVID booster programme in North Hampshire is running at Jameson House, Chineham, RG24 8AG.

Jameson House is located very close to the big tesco in Chineham. If you are on the roundabout where Tesco is, take the exit after Tesco on the roundabout and then once you have passed the small set of traffic lights take the next right on the little roundabout that is past the Tesco car park which you will see on your left. There are a limited number of parking spaces so volunteers will direct you to where you can park if you are travelling by car.

If you are travelling by bus, routes 7, 14 and 55 will drop you just outside the Hampshire Court hotel where it is a short walk over the road and well signposted.
