Covid 19 vaccinations

The Meads Medical Centre working in collaboration with Mid Downs Surgery, Buxted Medical Centre, Bird in Eye Surgery, Heathfield Surgery and Herstmonceux Integrative Health Centre (as part of the Greater Wealden Primary Care Network) have been approved to deliver the covid vaccine to eligible patients as part of the NHS' first phase of delivery. 

There are strict rules regarding when a person can be vaccinated and due to the nature of the vaccine and the logistical operation, the invitations to receive a vaccine may arrive at very short notice. 

For latest information about our covid vaccination programme please look at our Facebook page which contains up to date, timely information about the covid immunisation programme as well as other practice news.

If any of our patients are newly housebound and cannot come to a vaccination service, please telephone the surgery on 01825 766055 to let us know.

Update on the Spring COVID-19 booster programme

Hundreds of thousands of people will be invited to book a Spring COVID booster this week as the NHS vaccination programme, the biggest and fastest in health service history, enters a new phase.

Eligible groups for Spring boosters include care home residents, people who are 75 and over and those who are immunosuppressed aged 12 and over.

In line with new advice from the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation, the NHS COVID-19 vaccination programme will contact people when it is their turn to be vaccinated.

Once invited by the NHS, people will be able to book their appointment through the National Booking System either online or by calling NHS 119.
