COVID-19 and Getting Tested 

If you have COVID symptoms – a high temperature, new continuous cough or loss or change to your sense of smell or taste – please make sure you get tested and continue to follow the guidance by self-isolating to help protect those you may come into contact with.

COVID Booster Update

NHS ENGLAND PROOF OF VACCINATION:  Information on demonstrating your covid vaccination status is here for vaccines administered under NHS England. If you cannot access this link, or the NHS App, please call 119 who will arrange a letter for you. We are not able to provide documents relating to vaccination status and kindly ask that you do not contact us about this matter.

VACCINES GIVEN OVERSEAS : 

Tell the NHS about coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccinations you've had abroad - NHS (www.nhs.uk)

We kindly ask that you do not contact the GP surgery about this.

THIRD DOSE FOR IMMUNOSUPPRESSED INDIVIDUALS:  The criteria for who should have a third primary dose (which is not the same as a booster) are on page 21 of this guidance. If you think you are eligible and haven't yet been contacted please email reception.brmc@nhs.net and we will be able to help.

If you have already had your 3rd primary dose you should have a booster from 91 days after your 3rd dose. These are not currently bookable on the national booking service but can be obtained by going to a walk in vaccine session with evidence that you are immunosuppressed. 

AUTUMN BOOSTERS COVID

  • You can now book via the national booking service once it has been 2 months since your 2nd dose of the covid-19 vaccine. They should provide you with a date around 3 months post 2nd vaccine. 
  • Information on walk-in vaccination centre's can be found here
