Finchampstead Surgery COVID Vaccination Update: 15/02/2021

NHS England have announced that the 65-69 cohort should book their vaccination appointments through the National Booking System (NBS), you should receive a letter giving you details to book at a local Mass Vaccination Centre (MVC).

The Reading MVC is planning to open next week, with the intention of opening up their appointments from this Wednesday, 17th February (all going well with the NBS). Unfortunately, we cannot confirm the location of this site at this point.

The surgery has been advised to currently concentrate on booking the 16-64 year olds with serious underlying health conditions. These patients will receive a text from the surgery inviting them to book into a clinic at the surgery. We currently have over 1770 patients in this cohort and will call in age order depending on the number of vaccines we receive. If you are in this cohort and receive a letter from the NHS to attend a vaccination HUB please take up this offer as you will receive your vaccination sooner.

If you are aged 65-69 and receive a letter but do not have transport to get to a HUB please phone the surgery.

Thank you.
