Update on the COVID-19 booster programme (13th December 2021):
The NHS and its partners are working extremely hard to roll out the COVID-19 booster vaccination programme to our communities.
All adults are eligible from Monday 13 December, and you will be able to book via the National Booking System from Wednesday 15 December.
Please do not contact the practice over any vaccination queries or try to book through the practice as this will stop patients with medical conditions being able to get through.
You can book your booster for 3 months from the date of second vaccine, and you can access the National Booking System to book the appointment from 2 months.
In terms of any planned appointments with Kingsfold Medical Centre, there are no changes at the current time, and everyone should attend your planned appointments as normal.
If we need to make any changes, we will contact you directly
Our practice is part of the Ribble Medical Group Primary Care Network and our COVID19 Vaccination Site which has been running since December 2020 will be decommissioned on Thursday 27th May 2021 at 5pm due to completion of our Phase I vaccination delivery programme.
Our team would like to offer their grateful thanks to the volunteers of Penwortham Cricket Club for their continued dedication and support throughout the delivery of our vaccination programme.
We would like to thank our practice staff teams who have volunteered their time on their days off and during their leave to help on site.
If you require any further information regarding COVID19 vaccinations after the site has closed then please visit www.gov.uk or https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/coronavirus-vaccination/book-coronavirus-vaccination

Any eligible patients seeking their first COVID19 vaccination or 2nd dose Pfizer vaccination should now be contacting 119 via the telephone or via the online booking service - please do not contact the surgery as you will be signposted as below:
Patients who are eligible to receive a Covid-19 Vaccination will be invited to book an appointment.
It is really important that you make arrangements to have the vaccine once invited so that together we can return to some state of normal. If you have not received a letter, phone call or text message to book a vaccine, please do not worry, we will notify everyone in priority order when the vaccine becomes available. We would be grateful if you do not telephone the practice or hospital, please wait to be invited.
