Short closure for vaccination centres ahead of Autumn boosters
COVID-19 vaccinations centres run by Oxford Health in Aylesbury, Oxford and Reading will be closed from 5 – 11 September in order to prepare for the national Autumn vaccination campaign.
As with previous national vaccination campaigns, the oldest and most vulnerable people in the community will be called forward first, as well as frontline health and social care workers, with people able to book in online or by calling 119 – as long as it has been three months since their last dose. Some GP practices will also contact their registered patients directly to invite them to a local vaccination site.
The National Booking Service will be open next week ahead of the rollout of vaccinations at vaccination centres, due to start on 12 September, with the NHS inviting those who are most susceptible to serious illness from COVID-19 and those aged 75 and over to book an appointment from that week.
Shafik Nassar, Oxford Health’s Head of Service for Vaccination, said: “The NHS will contact people when it is their turn to get their autumn booster. I want to strongly encourage anyone who is invited and eligible for the jab to get it as quickly as possible – it will give you the best protection against COVID this winter.
“There will be a wide range of places that people can get their jabs which will include GP surgeries, community pharmacies and, of course, our vaccination centres in Aylesbury, Oxford and Reading. This makes it easy and convenient to get your jab locally.”
The Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation has issued guidance on the groups of people who should be offered the autumn booster jab. Details can be found on the Government website
