COVID-19 & Flu Vaccination

Covid and Flu Age 65 & Over

Please wait to be contacted before trying to make an appointment

The Covid booster programme has started. We will work through the priority groups as we did before starting at group 1 and finishing with group 9. Information about the priority groupings can be found here

There are 3 different ways your covid vaccine booster will be booked in North Hampshire

  • By a direct text from our service inviting you to book
  • By calling 119, our service is now registered on the National Booking service or you can book online

All vaccinations will take place at Jameson House, RG24 8AG

  • Most importantly you have to be 6 months after your 2nd dose to be eligible for a booster, we will be unable to book you in before this and our invites are specifically for those who are eligible
  • If you are over 65 we will also aim to give you a flu jab at the same appointment.
  • Some of you will have received text messages,  emails or letters from NHS.UK saying that you cannot book a flu vaccination at the same time.  Please be assured that if you are 65 and over you WILL be offered a flu vaccination at the same time as your Covid booster if you attend Jameson House in Chineham and your flu does not have to be booked separately. 
  • If you haven’t had a covid vaccine so far, we can always get this done at our site – please call the dedicated call centre and we will organise this for you

Combined Covid Booster & Flu Vaccination for the 65's & over

As we begin to start to welcome our patients back for their covid booster we are also planning to give them their flu jab at the same time at the same visit. The JCVI, who review the evidence for vaccination, support giving the two vaccines at the same time.

There are many benefits that we would see for giving the flu and covid vaccinations for our over 65s at the same time:

A single visit for our over 65 patients to our site to receive both vaccinations

  • Supporting practices by administering the flu vaccines on their behalf
  • Sharing of flu vaccine between practices to reach those who are most vulnerable and ensuring we do this as quickly as we can.

We know that some patients will be used to and expecting to have their flu jab at their home practice. The North Hampshire Clinical directors feel by combining the flu and covid vaccines together this is the best way we can support our patients to get their vaccines efficiently and safely, whilst ensuring we can continue to deliver our normal primary care services to you without interruption.

The success of the initial vaccination programme was due to the practices working together to deliver it. By working together for the booster campaign we aim to replicate the very high uptake of vaccination and positive experience our patients have had through our site at Jameson House.

You can get your 1st dose of a COVID-19 vaccine if you're aged 16 or 17.

The NHS will contact you when it's your turn to get the vaccine.

You cannot book your appointment online.

Some walk-in COVID-19 vaccination sites are offering the vaccine to people aged 16 and 17. You can check if a site is available near you.

Covid Children Aged 12 to 15

All children aged 12 to 15 will be offered a 1st dose of a COVID-19 vaccine.

Parents and guardians will get a letter with information about when the vaccine will be offered.

Most children will be given their vaccine at school.

Some children are being offered 2 doses of the vaccine if either:

  • they live with someone who is more likely to get infections (such as someone who has HIV, has had a transplant or is having certain treatments for cancer, lupus or rheumatoid arthritis)
  • they have a condition that means they're at high risk from COVID-19

Conditions that mean your child may be at high risk and can get vaccinated are:

  • a severe problem with the brain or nerves, such as cerebral palsy
  • Down's syndrome
  • severe or multiple learning disabilities (or they're on the learning disability register)
  • a condition that means they're more likely to get infections (such as some genetic conditions or types of cancer)

If your child is eligible for 2 doses of the vaccine, you'll be contacted by a local NHS service such as their GP surgery to arrange their appointments.
