*** Important notice regarding Covid-19 vaccinations ***

Dear Patient,

First Vaccinations

We are now unable to book first Covid-19 vaccinations for patients due to the national supply chain. Once we are able to recommence offering first vaccinations we will update this website, social media and our phone message. For those patients aged under 50 we will initially contact via text message to book.

Second Vaccinations

Please be assured however that we have vaccine supply for all of our patients who require a second Covid-19 vaccination. In the majority of cases these will be given in the 11th week after your first vaccination. We will contact you directly one to two weeks ahead of time to book your appointment. This may be over the phone or by text message.  

Please do not contact reception regarding the above. We will contact you.
