COVID 19 Boosters

The Vaccination Centre (Grammar School, Northallerton) will remain open every day apart from Christmas Day, Boxing Day, 27th and 28th Dec until Thurs 30th Dec.

From Saturday 18th, we will be offering boosters to those under 50. The Vaccination Centre will be aiming to provide 1200 booked appointments per day to service all Hambleton GP Practices. They will not have capacity to offer walk in appointments in the first instance. Booking an appointment will be in response to receiving a text from the Practice. This is different to receiving a text or letter from the NHS that allows you to book through the National Booking System.

The Vaccination Centre potentially has 22,000 vaccines to deliver in the next two weeks, so we appreciate your patience as we send invites out to patients via text in a controlled way. Please bear with us – we will ensure every eligible patient is invited.

If you are unable to wait for an appointment in the next two weeks, you can access the national system but will not be able to book for Northallerton via this route. Anyone can still attend the advertised drop in clinics in other areas.

Please bear in mind staffing of the Vaccine Centre is all being done by local practices and volunteers. This will mean a reduction of services at all GP Practices in Hambleton for this time. Please only contact the Practice with urgent problems for the remainder of December.

Please be respectful of the staff and volunteers at both the Practice and the Vaccination Centre. Many are giving up their own holiday time to staff the programme.

Thank you for your ongoing understanding and support.
