Nailsea Covid-19 Vaccination Update

At the time of writing, 81% of over 16s in the UK population have been fully vaccinated. As we head into the autumn, it’s now time to start thinking about reinforcing that immunity for the more vulnerable members of the public. With children back at school, preventing the spread of Covid-19 through rolling out the vaccine to younger years will minimise the impact any future surges will have on their learning.

Below, we provide the latest up-to-date information on the vaccination roll-out, helping Nailsea stay protected.

Booster Jabs

In Nailsea, Brockway Medical Centre is offering booster jabs as a priority to the following groups:

  • Immuno-supressed patients
  • Care home residents and staff
  • Frontline healthcare workers

If you fit into one of these categories and had your second jab at least 6 months ago, you will be contacted shortly and will be able to book an appointment at Brockway Medical Centre. For those requiring a flu vaccine as well, Tyntesfield Medical Group hope to administer both at the same time.

Vaccinations for 12-15 Year Olds

From the week beginning 20 September, young people aged 12-15 will be eligible for a Covid-19 vaccine. It is hoped that continuing the roll out amongst school children will minimise future outbreaks and reduce disruption to their education. Though children are less likely to fall seriously ill as a result of contracting Covid-19, there is still the risk of underlying health issues and the unknown long-term impact of the virus.

The School Age Immunisation Service will deliver the majority of vaccinations in schools, with other sites available where this is not possible.
