NHS reveal booster vaccination hubs to return to Harleston and Attleborough





Preparations are underway in Harleston and Attleborough to begin delivering the autumn Covid-19 booster campaign.

Next month will see large-scale vaccination centres return to south Norfolk as the NHS looks to get over-75s and sufferers of serious illness jabbed in time for the winter.

Paddock Road Surgery in Harleston and Connaught Hall in Station Road, Attleborough, will become two of 10 large-scale Covid vaccination sites across Cambridgeshire, Peterborough, Norfolk and Waveney which, from Monday, September 12, will be open seven days a week from 8.30am to 4.00pm and some evenings until 7.30pm.

People who are immunosuppressed can also choose to walk-in for their autumn booster, bringing with them a GP or consultant letter, or prescription that identifies their immunosuppressed status.

Kate Keeling, Head of Immunisation Norfolk and Waveney Integrated Care Board, said: “NHS staff are working hard to prepare for the rollout of the Covid-19 autumn booster programme and the annual flu vaccine.

“Just as with previous rounds of the vaccination programme, the autumn booster will be offered first to the most vulnerable and the oldest members of our population and will then be rolled out to the rest of the eligible population between mid-September and December.

“Vaccinations for flu and Covid-19 booster will be offered at a range of sites, including GP practices, local pharmacies, hospital hubs, and large vaccination centres.

“It is important that you wait for the NHS to contact you before you book in for either of your vaccinations.”

Some patients may be invited to have their vaccination at a local GP-led site. A number of pharmacies in the area will also offer the autumn booster to eligible patients.

Around 26 million people across England will be eligible for an autumn booster in line with guidance set out by the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation.

Bookings can be made using the National Booking Service, which opens on September 5.
