COVID-19 Vaccination Rollout

Autumn Booster Invites

We have a strict criteria of patients to invite for this programme, starting with the over 75’s and then working our way down the ages.

Therefore, if you have not received an invitation via a text or a phone call directly from Forestside Medical Practice, we are not yet able to book you in. 


Please note: Our Vaccination Clinics are being held at Waterside Health Centre, Hythe, SO45 5WX. You will be offered your flu jab at the same time as the covid booster. 

Seasonal Flu and COVID Boosters – Provisional Information

We have reached that time of year again when we need to start thinking about seasonal influenza vaccinations. As you know the Waterside PCN has been providing a successful COVID vaccination programme throughout the year (based at Applemore Leisure Centre), which started in December 2020.
This winter, in conjunction with the seasonal flu vaccination, we also must provide a COVID booster programme. The seasonal flu vaccine will be offered to the same group of patients who require a COVID booster. It makes sense therefore that we deliver our flu vaccinations at the same time as the boosters.
Currently the NHS is waiting for confirmation from the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) that this will be possible. We hope that this confirmation is imminent.
Once approved, we intend to start running joint COVID and flu clinics (hopefully from around mid-September).
As soon as we can, we will start inviting you to our clinics.
In the meantime:
•Please ensure we have up-to-date mobile number, or that of a next of kin 
•For those patients who don’t have mobiles, please provide an email address where possible.
•Keep watching our website or Facebook pages for updates.
