We are back in very uncertain times with Covid it seems with the OMICRON variant rapidly becoming the dominant strain across Europe and especially in the UK. Please continue to observe social distancing, wear masks and wash hands frequently. If you are in the small minority of our patients who have not yet had any vaccination against Covid, please consider getting vaccinated. It will not only protect you but also the more vulnerable in our society.
Although the surgery had largely returned to normal for consultations, GPs nationally have been informed last night (Tuesday 14th December) that vaccination boosters must become the top priority in our fight against the Omicron strain and we have been asked to step-up with extra vaccine clinics. We understand that the vaccination clinics significantly interfere with the normal running of the practice and appreciate your patience. From a health perspective, vaccination is a serious priority at present, and in line with public health policy we invite you to book in for your booster now.
We will be running a Covid Vaccine Booster Clinic on Thursday December 30th. The surgeries in Ballyshannon and Bundoran will be closed and there will be no routine surgery on that day but there will be cover in the case of emergencies only. All appointments for Covid Booster must be booked online through the link below. Do not ring the surgery asking for us to book you in for your Covid Booster. Do not turn up on the day without an appointment as you will not be accommodated.
In order to book a Covid Booster Vaccine in this clinic you must satisfy the following criteria:
- A registered patient of the practice
- A minimum of 3 months since your 2nd Covid Vaccine
- A minimum of 6 months since you tested positive for Covid 19 if you were fully vaccinated (2 vaccines) at the time you got Covid 19.
- A minimum of 1 months since you tested positive for Covid 19 if you were only partially vaccinated (1 vaccine) at the time you got Covid 19.
- Over 16 years of age.
Anyone over 16 who satisfies the above criteria we are inviting to book through our booking system by clicking the link below. If eligible you will also be offered the 2021/22 seasonal flu vaccine on the day.
