COVID Vaccination Programme – Patients over 80 years of age

Houghton Close Surgery is working in collaboration with local pharmacies and other local practices to provide a COVID vaccination programme. We were hoping to start vaccinations from Tuesday 12th January at the Rufus Centre, Steppingley Road, Flitwick MK45 1AH but unfortunately this has been delayed due to a logistical issue and will not start until week commencing 18th January.

Please note that this vaccination programme is far more involved than the usual annual flu clinics and there is a great deal of work being done behind the scenes to make this work. We are looking forward to getting this started as soon as possible.

The practice will telephone patients who are over 80 and mobile to book their appointment. Please do not telephone the practice but be patient with us as we have a lot of patients to invite and will be booking these in priority order.

For those patients who are over 80 and live in a care or residential home or are housebound we will be in touch with you as soon as possible.

For all other age groups please keep an eye on our website for further updates which will detail when you will be able to book your appointment.
