COVID-19 Spring Booster vaccination update

WE WILL NOT BE ADMINISTERING THE SPRING BOOSTER DOSE HERE AT LONDON LANE CLINIC.

Eligible patients will soon be invited for their vaccinations as part of the Spring Booster programme by the NHS. An eligible patient will be offered an appointment around 6 months since their last dose of vaccine.  PLEASE DO NOT CONTACT LONDON LANE CLINIC TO ENQUIRE WHEN YOU WILL BE INVITED.

Once invited, book online or call 119 to make an appointment. When booking a Spring Booster appointment, patients will be given a choice of the nearest vaccination site.  London Lane Clinic will NOT be administering.

Eligible patients:

The JCVI (Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation) has advised a Spring booster dose for the most vulnerable individuals in the population, namely;

  1. all adults aged 75 years and over;
  2. residents in a care home for older adults (over 65 years); and
  3. individuals aged 12 years and over who are immunosuppressed (as defined in the Green Book).

Eligible adults will be offered a Pfizer BioNTech (Comirnaty) or Moderna (Spikevax) vaccine. Both vaccines boost well and have already been given to millions of people in the UK.

HOUSEBOUND PATIENTS:  London Lane Clinic will be vaccinating our Housebound patients ONLY.  We will contact housebound patients to book in visits. It will be very much appreciated if you do not call us to chase.  Please do not worry – we will not forget you.
