Covid Vaccination Appointment Notification

As well as being offered a COVID vaccination appointment at our local community hub at Poringland Community Centre (Behind Bugden’s), patients who are either clinically extremely vulnerable or aged 70 and over along with health and care frontline staff are now receiving letters from NHS England inviting them to use the national booking system for an appointment at Castle Quarter in Norwich (and Hayden Chemist).

If you:

  • 1) Have already had a first vaccination and been given an appointment for a second dose, then please keep this appointment and ensure you go back to the same place where you first attended.
  • 2) Have a confirmed appointment at the Poringland Community Centre for a first vaccine then please keep this appointment and ignore the letter sent by NHS England.
  • 3) Have received a letter from NHS England offering you an appointment at Castle Quarter in Norwich and have not previously been offered an appointment at the Poringland Community Centre then you can choose to either:
    • a) Book a vaccination at Castle Quarter through the national appointment system using the telephone number and website address provided in the NHS England letter
      Or
    • b) Wait until a local GP Practice or community hub contacts you with an appointment. You shouldn’t have to wait too long as this process is underway.
