Covid 19 Vaccination Programme

Covid 2nd Dose Vaccinations

Please note that due to a revised delivery schedule, patients who have a second dose scheduled for April will be contacted (in many cases by text message) asking them to reschedule the appointment. This appointment will be earlier than the original date.

Brentwood Centre, Doddinghurst Road, Brentwood, CM15 9NN

Covid Vaccinations are by appointment only. We are currently contacting patients aged 50 and over or those with underlying health conditions as per the Government guidelines.

Other groups will be contacted in due course.

The public can really help the NHS to deliver our vaccination programmes effectively to those who need it most. Taking these simple steps will help us to help you.

  • The NHS will contact you when it’s the right time to come forward, so please don’t contact us to seek a vaccine before then.
  • Please act on your invitation when it arrives, and make sure you attend your appointments when you arrange them.
  • In the meantime, please continue to abide by all the social distancing and hand hygiene guidance, which will still save lives.

The latest information on the COVID-19 vaccination programme is online on the NHS website.

We advise checking there first if you have questions about the safety or effectiveness of COVID vaccines, or your priority to receive vaccination.
