Finchampstead Surgery: Update 14th May

Covid Update

We are continuing to invite patients who had their first Astra Zeneca vaccine with us for the second vaccine at approximately 11-12 weeks after the first. Please do not contact us we will contact you.

We will not be doing any more first vaccinations at Finchampstead Surgery. All patients who are eligible to book a vaccination can do so via the online booking service or by calling 119.

Pregnant ladies can now book via the national booking service at a site that offers Pfizer or Moderna vaccinations. Every woman who is pregnant or thinks they may be pregnant should be offered a discussion with a healthcare professional at their vaccination appointment so she can make an informed choice
