Covid Vaccination at Newbury Racecourse

COVID VACCINATION

Due to the nature of the covid vaccine and the need to reduce wastage, and work at scale, we have joined forces with 8 other Newbury practices including Lambourn and Hungerford to deliver our Covid Vaccination Programme from Newbury Racecourse. We realise this is not as convenient for our patients, in that there will be a need to travel, but because of the delivery logistics and the need to deliver at scale we cannot do this from the surgery at this stage.

Please do not call us, we are contacting patients to book appointments in order of priority according to the National Criteria which we are unable to deviate from.

A walk through video showing what you can expect on your visit to the vaccination centre can be found here:

Mass Vaccination Centres

You may also be contacted from the national NHS database by letter, text message or telephone call inviting you to book an appointment at a mass vaccination centre such as Swindon, Basingstoke, Oxford, Marlow, Bristol or Epsom. You are welcome to book in to a mass vaccination site by following the instructions on the communication you receive. We cannot assist with the booking process nor assist with any specific questions about these sites.

If you prefer to be vaccinated at Newbury Racecourse then you do not need to do anything. We will be in contact when we have an appointment to offer.
