Welcome to St Mary's Island Group Practices

COVID-19 Vaccination

We have started inviting patients for their 2nd vaccinations.  We are also still inviting all patients over the age of 50 for their first vaccinations.

If your first vaccination was following an invitation from the practice you will be contacted as soon as your second vacciniation is due.  If your first vaccination was provided from the national vaccination site you will be requested to book your second vaccination on line.

Covid-19 vaccinations for our patients are being provided from St Mary’s Medical Centre (Strood). There will be home visits for housebound patients.

We are inviting patients based on the national priority list. Please be patient and wait to be contacted about when the vaccine is available for you.

If you are over 50 years old or are 18 with underlying health conditions you should have been contacted to organise an appointment for your COVID vaccination. Please ring or email the surgery if you have not yet been contacted for an appointment.

Please see our Covid-19 Vaccination Information sheet and Covid-19 screening questions (Word Document) for further details.
