Covid-19 Vaccinations Update

The end of the Covid Vaccination programme at Nettlebed

HenleySonNet Primary Care Network (PCN), which includes The Bell Surgery, The Hart Surgery, Nettlebed Surgery and Sonning Common Health Centre, has officially given notice to withdraw from the COVID-19 Vaccination Programme, to be effective from the end of November.  By that time as a PCN we will have delivered more than 45,000 vaccinations, of which Nettlebed will have delivered close to 7000 vaccinations.

We will of course, in line with previous years, continue to deliver the flu vaccination programme.

It has been a challenging year for all to deliver the COVID-19 Vaccination Programme in tandem with the operations of the Practice but this could not have been achieved without the brilliant effort of all our staff and a long list of volunteers and supporters of all four Practices.  We now feel that after a year of being a part of the Vaccination Programme, delivering the Booster Vaccine to Stage 1 (Cohorts 1-4 which includes the most at risk), now is the right time to step back and provide a stronger focus on our patients as we enter into the winter period.

We will continue to announce further Booster Clinics during October and November to invite eligible groups of patients where their 2nd COVID-19 vaccination was 6 months or more ago.

From December, those patients aged 50 and over, those aged 16 and over with a health condition that puts them at high risk from COVID-19, along with frontline health and social care workers can continue to book a Booster vaccine via the National Booking Service.
