COVID-19 Vaccination Programme – 2nd Dose Update

Posted by: devon - Posted on:

NHS England have confirmed that appointments for a second dose of a vaccine will be brought forward from 12 to 8 weeks for the remaining people in the top nine priority groups who have yet to receive their second dose. This is to ensure people across the UK have the strongest possible protection from the virus at an earlier opportunity.

At this time we have been given no additional information and are currently awaiting revised vaccine delivery schedules from NHS England.

Patients should continue to attend their second dose appointments and nobody needs to contact the NHS. We will let those patients whose appointment will be brought forward know as soon as we are able to do so.

We thank you for your patience
