Update for COVID Booster Vaccines

COVID-19 booster vaccinations for patients registered at Holt Medical Practice and Wells Health Centre

November 3rd 2021

Patients in the Holt and Wells areas of North Norfolk will be able to access COVID-19 boosters closer to home, thanks to a new partnership approach to support local patients.

North Norfolk Primary Care (NNPC), GP Provider Organisation for North Norfolk, and Norfolk Community Health and Care NHS Foundation Trust (NCH&C), will be working collaboratively to deliver booster vaccines in the Holt and Wells areas.

Pop-up COVID-19 booster vaccination clinics will be running for five consecutive Mondays, starting on the 8th November 2021 at Wells Community Hospital, Mill Road, Wells-next-the-Sea, Norfolk, NR23 1RF. Patients will either receive a text message with a link to book an appointment or will receive a call to be booked in if they do not have a mobile telephone. There will also be some additional capacity for drop-in appointments. If you are currently eligible for a booster vaccine please be patient. Please don’t contact Wells Health Centre, we will contact you. Please help us to keep our phone lines free for urgent and emergency appointments.

A vaccination site is being planned at Kelling Hospital and is expected to go live later in November. These clinics will be delivering COVID-19 booster vaccines. Appointments will be available for booking via the National Booking Service (NBS) NHS national booking service online at nhs.uk/covid-vaccination or call 119 (free) between 7am and 11pm seven days a week. Further information will be available when a firm date has been set.

The new arrangements have been put in place following patient and stakeholder feedback and to increase vaccine accessibility in rural North Norfolk. Making COVID-19 vaccines as accessible as possible is a priority for NHS Norfolk and Waveney Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) which is overseeing the roll-out of the vaccination programme in the area.
