We have successfully started vaccinations for the COVID boosters at Dawlish hospital.
We are only vaccinating those who are over 65, or, under 65 AND in an at risk category. Healthy 50-64 year olds will need to book via the National Booking System (119) when invited.
Boosters cannot be given earlier than 182 days (6 months), please wait for us to contact you. We are texting, emailing and calling eligible patients, however we have thousands of patients to invite and are doing so in order of those due first.
A small cohort of patients may be eligible for a 3rd primary dose (not a booster) which can be given at least 8 weeks after your second dose. If this applies to you, your Specialist / Consult will contact you to inform you of this. You will also be invited for a booster (4th dose), 6 months after your third vaccination.
Similar to last time, we are sending texts with a booking link. You may need to use the date drop down box at the top to view more clinic dates, as the system only shows the next 14 days by default. When selecting the dates from the drop down, you need to click submit in order for the next 14 days to show.
If you cannot use the online booking function please call your surgery. Please do not phone Dawlish hospital as they are unable to book patients in.
If you wish to decline a booster, please let us know so we can update our records, this will also stop future reminder messages from being sent.
