COVID-19 Vaccination

18 January 2021 (updated 30 Jan 2021)

Please do not phone the practice with COVID-19 vaccination queries. We are experiencing a high volume of such enquiries which is preventing patients with medical problems from getting through on the phones. And our reception staff are being kept from doing their essential work by dealing with these queries.

We did not design this vaccination programme. Our roll is to administer the vaccinations to priority groups when given the instruction by the Health and Social Care Board.  We are inviting patients for vaccination every time we receive a delivery of vaccine. We will contact you when it is your turn. If you have a query please see below our COVID-19 Vaccination page.

Flu Vaccination for Over 50s

24 January 2021

The Department of Health have now given the go ahead to extend the flu vaccination to all patients aged 50 years and over.  We will contact all eligible patients to offer an appointment.  You can learn more by visiting our Flu Vaccination Page
