Covid 19

Covid Vaccination Programme

The Spring Booster Campaign is starting on the 22nd April 2024 and is for:

  • care home residents
  • those aged 75+
  • those aged 5-74 who are defined by The Greenbook by JCVI  as having significant immunosuppression (see below in "immunosuppression" section of Table 3 & 4).

We will be aiming to provide this for our most vulnerable patients (all care home residents and eligible housebound patients)

We will be running some clinics to other eligible patients. We have been asked to prioritise certain groups with immunosuppression as we will not have capacity or sufficient vaccine to offer it to all of our eligible registered patients.

We will predominantly be offering vaccinations on Saturday mornings, in order to keep normal General Practice services running. Our next planned clinic is on Saturday May 11th.

Currently we are only receiving Moderna (Spikevax) vaccines, which is for 18y+ only.

Boosters are widely available in other city sites currently, including Boots in Cornmarket Street and Exeter Hall in Kidlington.

Appointments are bookable here or by calling 119. Details of walk-in vaccine sites are here.


Children under 18 years

We are not currently receiving vaccine for this age group.

If you are eligible and struggling to get this please leave your name with reception so we can arrange this if and when we receive the appropriate vaccine.

We are aware of various reports and research that BAME patients may be less likely to want the Coronavirus vaccine. At Summertown Group Practice we are very focussed on getting the vaccine to all groups in our patient population. We urge you if you have any questions or worries about the vaccines, to call or email us so that we can respond to any worries or queries.
