Updated 14th September 2021. Please read on for the latest news on the covid-19 vaccination programme.


The NHS plans to offer a booster covid-19 vaccine to everyone over 50 as well as people in at-risk groups. Patients will be contacted to make an appointment in due course. Locally it is likely that the Hexham Mart site will re-open in the coming weeks to offer booster vaccinations. The Mart site will not be offering flu vaccinations.

We are continuing to book our flu clinics and patients are advised to book their flu jab while they wait for their covid vaccination invitation, which may be weeks or months away. The advice from the NHS is not to delay getting your flu jab.
