Rollout of the COVID Booster Vaccination In Somerset

The symptoms are similar to other illnesses that are much more common, such as cold and flu and it does not necessarily mean you have the illness. The main symptoms are:

  • A new continuous cough
  • A high temperature (37.8 degrees centigrade or higher)
  • A loss of or change in smell or taste

NHS 111 has an online coronavirus (COVID-19) service that can tell you if you need medical help and advise you what to do.

Public Health England have published information regarding the AstraZeneca vaccination & blood clotting concerns surrounding it.

Face Mask Exemption 

You do not need a letter from your GP. You simply need to declare your exemption when asked. We are sorry, but we will not provide any letters of exemption for the wearing of face coverings.

Information on face coverings from GOV.UK

NHS patients, staff and visitors must continue to wear face coverings in healthcare settings.

 

Vaccination Clinics

We have now completed our local vaccination programme for people in cohorts 1-9. All adults aged 18 and over are eligible to book a COVID vaccination – to book both first and second doses visit the National Booking Service online or by calling 119.  There are a wide range of locations available to choose across Somerset – there is no need to contact the surgery.

We would like to say a huge thank you to the hundreds of people who have supported our local COVID vaccination programme. We are so proud of each and every person who has given their time and energy to help us to run such a successful programme
