Covid Spring 2024 booster update

We have started to send out text messages with a booking link to our patients who are eligible for the spring 2024 Covid booster and signed up for SMS messaging. Please use the booking link if at all possible to book your appointment as the phone lines are very busy. We have also sent out letters to those who are eligible and not signed up for the SMS messaging service. These should arrive in the next few days. If you have received a letter but would prefer to sign up for the text messaging service in future, please let the reception team know your mobile number when booking your vaccination. Our Covid vaccination clinic is taking place on Saturday 11th May from 8.30 – 4.15 at our Ilfracombe Surgery. Covid vaccination invites are only being sent to patients who are Immunosuppressed (low immune system) and also any patients Age 75 or over this spring. We will also be vaccinating patients in Care Homes separately. Please do not contact us for a vaccination if you are not Immunosuppressed or 75 and over and received an invitation. If you have been sent an invitation, but you are housebound, please call us to let us know. Anyone eligible and already listed as housebound will not receive an invitation from Combe Coastal Practice, but will be contacted by the NHS Covid team who are providing home vaccinations. Thank you
