We are inviting all patients aged 75+ and those who are immunosuppressed to have a further Covid booster vaccination. It does not matter which Covid vaccine you have had previously. Our spring Covid vaccination clinics for adults will start in April. Please be reassured you will be contacted when it is your turn for the vaccines.

Frequently Asked Questions

I cannot make the time given to me in my invitation letter.

We strongly encourage patients to make every effort to attend for these important vaccinations on the date and time given to you – appointments are spread across the day to avoid over-crowding and queues to keep people safe.  If you are unable to attend the appointment date and time given, an alternative date has been given to you in your letter. You do not need to contact the surgery to say you are coming at another day/time.

My spouse/partner has been sent an appointment to one of the clinics, but it’s at a different time. Can we come together?

We have tried to ensure household members are given the same appointment time, but this is not always possible if their first names are at different ends of the alphabet. Households or those who are sharing transport arrangements who have both been sent an invitation are welcome to come together at the same time – you do not need to phone us to advise this, just turn up together with your respective invitation letters.


Why are the Covid Clinics not held at Monks Park Surgery?

There are a set number of sites authorised and approved to administer the Covid vaccinations. All chosen sites have good access, parking and enable us to minimise the impact on our other services.

I cannot get to the location- what do I do?

We hope that most people will have a friend, neighbour or relative who will be able to bring them to the clinic if they are unable to drive themselves – this is one reason why we have scheduled the clinics at weekends rather than during the working week. The local community transport helplines serve communities across Bristol, North Somerset, and South Gloucestershire.

How are the vaccines administered?

Covid vaccinations are normally administered into your arm.

Do I need to bring my invitation letter to the vaccination clinic?

Yes, it is essential that you bring your letter as it includes your personal details which are needed to record your vaccination status. Should you forget to bring your letter, you will be asked for these details so we can add the vaccination to your health record.

I am not over 75 or at risk, can I have the Spring booster?

No, unless you have received an invitation letter from us you cannot have a vaccination at these clinics.

I have also received a Covid letter from NHS England

You may receive a letter directly from NHS England, and should you wish to book onto the National Booking Centre please do so. The link to book or manage your Covid vaccination with NHS is below.

I don’t want the vaccine.

Not a problem, please let us know by ringing the surgery, and we can mark your record as ‘declined’.

I don’t want the vaccination; I have told my surgery, but I have still received a letter.

If you have previously told the surgery that you don’t want the Covid vaccination, but you have received a letter, we apologise and understand that this could be frustrating for you. Your decision to refuse the vaccinations is only valid per vaccine. You may have changed your mind since we last got in touch and we want to ensure every eligible patient has access to the choice of having a vaccine. This means you will need to inform the surgery so we can mark your record as declined.
