Spring Booster Vaccine Programme

We have been asked by NHS ENGLAND to continue to participate in the Spring Booster Vaccine Programme. We have undergone an assessment so that these vaccinations can now be given at Portland Medical Practice. With this in mind, we would like you to contact us to arrange a pre booked appointment. You will be vaccinated at the practice without the need for queuing at mass vaccine sites.
If you had your 3rd vaccine 6 months ago, are aged 75 or over or are Immunocompromised, please call the surgery on 01922 450950 to make an appointment. Several clinics are now available to book into over the next few weeks.
