Covid Vaccines for ages 50-69

We have special permission from the Department of Health, to start vaccinating our patients aged 50 and over against Covid -19.

If you are aged 50-69 you can book ONLINE (see instructions on our home page) to have your Covid vaccine at one of our weekend vaccine clinics. If you need a weekday appointment please phone the clinic instead.

If you have risk factors (listed on our home page) you will need an appointment with your GP first to discuss the risks before you book your Covid vaccination. If you don’t have risk factors just go ahead and book for the Covid vaccination.
