The practice is currently inundated with phone calls from patients trying to book an appointment for a covid booster. The booster can only be offered at least 6 months after your last dose. You will be contacted by either the practice or receive correspondence directly from the government when you are due. We politely request that you wait until you are contacted before booking an appointment.
When you are offered your covid vaccine at Newport Health Centre we will also offer you the option of having your flu vaccination at the same time.
Like some other vaccines, levels of protection from your previous covid vaccinations may begin to wane over time. This booster dose will help extend the protection you gained from your first 2 doses and give you longer term protection. The booster will help to reduce the risk of you needing admission to hospital due to Covid -19 infection this winter.
