Over 40s Covid Vaccinations

We have now began inviting patients aged 40 and over for their Covid Vaccination. 

If you are aged over 40 and would like to book in for your Covid Vaccination, then please give us a call on 01530 270 933 if you wish to have your vaccination at the Medical Unit or local hub in Measham. 

Please note that the Online Booking which is being offered will be at a National Vaccination Centre, not locally and you will need to return to the same centre for your second vaccination.

Covid Vaccination April Update

The Covid vaccine rollout has been a huge success and the feedback from patients who have received their vaccinations at our local hub at Measham leisure centre has been extremely positive. We have also received feedback from the CCG advising that this hub is the most efficient and best organised in Leicestershire and the team of clinicians, administrators and volunteers feel very proud to have been able to offer this fantastic service to our local community.

You may receive a telephone call from the practice or receive a text inviting you to book an online appointment for the hub. We have began holding clinics within our own surgery too. Please only call or email if you have received and invite for your vaccination.

We have began recalling people for their 12 week boosters. Please do not ring or email the surgery to enquire about this unless it has been longer than 12 weeks since your first dose as we will be contacting everyone in turn once we have confirmation of our booster-vaccine delivery. Please remember you will also need to return to the same centre for your booster.

Please continue to take all recommended precautions even when you have been vaccinated.

Lets take this next step, safely.
