COVID-19 Vaccination

We are able to provide NHS Covid-19 vaccination

From Monday 22nd April 2024, we will be able to provide the COVID-19 spring booster.

We are currently using the Moderna Spikevax vaccine which is designed to protect against both the original and Omicron variants.

You can have a seasonal booster dose (spring booster) of the COVID-19 vaccine with us if you are:

  • aged 75 or over (or will turn 75 years of age by 30 June 2024)
  • aged 18 and over and at high risk because of a weakened immune system - see below for eligibility)

The current inclusion criteria for immunocompromised patients:

  • Immunosuppression due to disease or treatment, including patients undergoing chemotherapy leading to immunosuppression, patients undergoing radical radiotherapy, solid organ transplant recipients, bone marrow or stem cell transplant recipients, HIV infection at all stages, multiple myeloma or genetic disorders affecting the immune system (e.g. IRAK-4, NEMO, complement disorder, SCID).
  • Individuals who are receiving immunosuppressive or immunomodulating biological therapy including, but not limited to, anti-TNF, alemtuzumab, ofatumumab, rituximab, patients receiving protein kinase inhibitors or PARP inhibitors, and individuals treated with steroid sparing agents such as cyclophosphamide and mycophenolate mofetil.
  • Individuals treated with or likely to be treated with systemic steroids for more than a month at a dose equivalent to prednisolone at 20mg or more per day for adults.
  • Anyone with a history of haematological malignancy, including leukaemia, lymphoma, and myeloma.
  • Those who require long term immunosuppressive treatment for conditions including, but not limited to, systemic lupus erythematosus, rheumatoid arthritis, inflammatory bowel disease, scleroderma and psoriasis.
