COVID BOOSTERS - We are just finding out information about the covid booster campaign at the same time as the public are, and do not yet have all the details. We are anticipating deliveries of covid booster vaccines to Shrewsbury in early October and will soon start inviting patients over 50 and in the at risk groups for a combined flu and covid booster appointment – this is in line with recommendations for patients to have the two vaccines together where possible. Appointments will be at the vaccination centre at Severnfields. Patients will be invited to these clinics in order of priority according to the JCVI cohorts as with the initial doses, and due to the volume of patients we are vaccinating the clinics will be running right through to December. In the meantime, please make sure we have your up to date mobile telephone number, as this is the easiest way for us to invite you.

eConsult

Please note that eConsult is only available during working hours ie Monday-Friday 8-6pm.
