COVID BOOSTER JABS
Every adult in Manchester should now have a Covid-19 booster jab as part of the plan to fight the spread of the Omicron variant.
You can book a booster jab online using the national booking system or by calling 119
People registered with a Manchester GP can also call the Gateway on 0161 947 0770 or 0800 092 402. Lines are open Monday to Friday, 8am – 6pm. Ask them about a free taxi to and from your vaccination appointment if you need help with transport.
If you have received a text message from your GP practice about booking a vaccination you can also follow the instructions in the message.
Sites across Manchester have extended their opening times to make it easy for people to get their life-saving jabs.
You can also find details of local walk-in sites on the Manchester City Council website. You don’t need an appointment to attend these walk in clinics.
Please make sure that you wear a face covering at all vaccination sites.
Remember, it’s never too late to get vaccinated. If you haven’t had your first, second or your booster jab then please do. It’s important that you do all you can to keep yourself, your friends and your family safe.
From Monday 19th July -:
A Face Covering is still mandatory prior to admission to the surgery. The guidance from NHS England confirms people must still wear a face mask in healthcare settings.
If you require a GP appointment you will still have a telephone consultation first and if you need to be seen in person the GP will book you in. Please advise the doctor of any Covid-19 symptoms you have.
Please, where possible, come alone and wear a face covering. We will take the necessary steps to make sure the practice is safe for you to visit.
Prescription requests can be posted through the letterbox, ordered on-line or ordered through your pharmacy.
We are experiencing a very high demand in telephone calls at the moment and you may have to wait to be answered so if you are phoning for results or querying referrals etc please telephone after 11.00am. We cannot make appointments or deal with queries via the intercom at the front door.
We appreciate your patience and support during these difficult times.
