**Update on the COVID-19 Booster Programme**
Across Herefordshire, the NHS and its partners are working extremely hard to roll out the COVID-19 booster vaccination programme to our patients.
All adults are eligible from Monday 13 December, and you will be able to book via the National Booking System from Wednesday 15 December.
You can book your booster for 3 months from the date of second vaccine, and you can access the National Booking System to book the appointment from 2 months.
All of these appointments will be added to the National Booking System and so we encourage everyone who is aged 18 and over, is yet to have their booster and who is approaching 3 months from your second vaccine to use the National Booking System to arrange your appointment when you are able to do so.
In terms of any planned appointments at Wargrave House Surgery there are no changes at the current time and everyone should attend your planned appointments as normal. If we need to make any changes, we will contact you directly.
