COVID Booster Vaccinations
The booster vaccination programme is opening up to all adults aged 18 and over. Eligibility will be opened up based on age. For the latest detail on who is eligible, please check www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/coronavirus-vaccination/book-coronavirus-vaccination
Please wait until you are contacted by the NHS or you see national publicity that your age range is now eligible. The time between your second dose and a booster must be at least three months.
Please do not call the practice with general queries about Covid-19 vaccination.
Local teams are vaccinating as many people as quickly as possible.
You can book using the national booking service (NBS) by calling 119 or at www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/coronavirus-vaccination/book-coronavirus-vaccination
The national booking service will only show clinics that have appointments available when you visit the site/call 119; but clinics regularly add more dates.

Third primary dose of Covid-19 Vaccines
Eligible individuals aged 18 or above who have a referral/recommendation letter from their GP or hospital consultant can now book a third primary dose appointment via the National Booking Service (NBS). Individuals will be required to bring their referral letter from their GP or hospital consultant to their appointment.
Individuals eligible for a third dose as identified in the JCVI advice can book their third primary dose at least eight weeks following their second Covid-19 vaccine dose unless otherwise advised by their GP/specialist team and outlined in the referral letter. Individuals aged 18 or above booking their third dose via the NBS will be directed to sites with Pfizer or Moderna capacity.
For those aged under 18, work is ongoing to determine a NBS booking journey. Until this is in place, the NBS is directing those aged under 18 to alternative pathways such as walk-in sites via the national walk-in site finder.
Had a COVID vaccination overseas?
If you have received a COVID vaccination abroad, you can now book a face-to-face appointment at selected sites across the country using this link to have your overseas vaccination records validated and recorded. Ensuring overseas vaccinations are recorded will enable patients to be invited for any subsequent doses for which they are eligible and will also help patients access the NHS COVID Pass.
To be eligible to use the service you must:
- have received one of the four MHRA (Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency) approved vaccine types for use in England: AstraZeneca (Vaxzevria) / Pfizer/BioNTech (Comirnaty) / Johnson & Johnson (Janssen) / or Moderna (Spikevax)
- be aged 18 or over
- have an NHS number
Unfortunately, we are unable to update your vaccination record at Grosvenor and St James Medical Practice.
Missing or Incorrect Vaccine Records
The Vaccination Data Resolution Service (VDRS) aims to resolve missing or incorrect vaccination records for people vaccinated in England, Scotland or Wales who have a NHS number and are registered with a GP practice in England. If you believe you have missing or incorrect Covid-19 vaccination data, please call 119 and ask the call agent to make a referral to the VDRS team on your behalf. The VDRS team will aim to call you back within 21 days.
We hope the above answers your Vaccine related query. Our lines are very busy currently and we are committed to providing a GP Practice service for all our patients who may have other non-vaccine related medical enquiries
Thank you for your support.
