Covid-19 Vaccinations (3rd dose and boosters, or still need a first dose?)- Update 16/10/21

The vaccination booster campaign has now started and Minerva practices are vaccinating at the Bath Academy site in Rush Hill (the old Culverhay school site) each week.

We will contact you at the right time-please wait until then and there is no need to contact us. If we have your mobile number you will receive a text from the national booking service which allows you to book at any of the national sites eg Bath Racecourse, and we will send you a text that would allow you to book at the Minerva Practices site at Culverhay School. If we don’t have your mobile number then we will phone you when it is your turn. 

Third doses-If you are severely immuno-suppressed, or have a blood cancer, then you are due to have a third dose as part of your initial course. This group does NOT include patients on drugs such as Methotrexate etc. You should now have had a booking phone call or SMS from us- if not then please call the surgery

Not had 1st or 2nd dose of Covid-19 vaccination yet? Please do book for this as soon as possible and you book this by calling 119 or use this link

Flu vaccinations-if you’re offered a flu vaccination before your booster then please come and have that flu vaccine to get protection as soon as possible, and have the booster later.
