Covid-19 Information

Annual flu vaccination and autumn 2022 Covid 19 booster - patients aged over 65

Please note that both the above are now available to book for all patients aged over 65. NHS England has asked GP Practice’s to co-administer both injections where possible and the Rookery will be doing this over a series of clinics in September and October.

Eligible patients will receive a text or letter. That said, if you are 65 or over (or will be by 31st March 2023) please phone 01638 664338 to book an appointment for your flu vaccination and Covid booster. The clinics will be held at the Racing Centre on Fred Archer Way so that we can get as many patients vaccinated as possible at each session.

If there is someone you rely on as your carer, please ask them to contact us, or their own surgery, as they may be eligible for a free flu vaccination and Covid booster too.



Sensible precautions will remain in place in at the Rookery

The ending of COVID-19 legal restrictions from Thursday 24th February is a significant step forward for local people and businesses, but sensible precautions will remain in place in all health care settings to protect vulnerable patients and staff.

COVID-19 has not gone away. It is still with us and still threatens our health and wellbeing. We will still require those entering the Practice building to wear a face covering. This requirement will remain in place after Thursday as we must continue to protect our most vulnerable patients who are at risk of serious illness, and protect our staff so that NHS services can continue to be provided. We are still asking our staff and patients to wash or sanitise their hands regularly and keep a safe distance from other people.

It important that those eligible continue to come forward for vaccination, and there will still be many walk-in clinics taking place across the county, whether it’s a 1st, 2nd, 3rd, or booster vaccination.

In the spring the vaccination programme will begin offering the second booster dose for the most vulnerable in our communities.
