COVID-19 Vaccine Update – Booking Your Appointment

Houghton Close Surgery is working in collaboration with local pharmacies and local GP practices to provide a Covid-19 vaccination for our patients.

Eligibility Groups 1 to 4 (Over 70s, residents in care homes, front line health and social care workers and clinically extremely vulnerable patients) should have all been contacted to offer vaccination. If you have slipped the net please telephone the practice on 01525 300898.

Patients in Group 5 (over 65 years of age) are now being invited for vaccination. If you are in this category you should have either received a letter or text message giving details of how to book via the National Booking System.

As other groups of patients become eligible they will receive a letter from NHS England inviting them to book an appointment via the National Booking System www.nhs.uk/coronavirus-vaccination or by telephoning 119.

You must have your letter to hand as you will need your NHS number.

There are a number of local vaccination sites including The Rufus Centre, Steppingley Road, Flitwick, MK45 1AH, Priory House, Chicksands as well as sites in Bedford, Luton and Milton Keynes.
