Crane Valley Community Vaccination Centre

December 2021 saw the launch of a new vaccination centre led by GP Practices within the Crane Valley Primary Care Network (PCN). The Crane Valley PCN vaccination site enabled GP practices in the area to accelerate the delivery of booster vaccines to local patients.

Since then, site staff have delivered over 6,000 doses to the local community. The Spring COVID Booster Programme commenced in March with vaccines being delivered to all eligible patients in the network through a mixture of drive-through and in site clinics.

Plans are now being drawn together to prepare for the Winter 2022/23 Vaccination programme to administer Winter flu and any other COVID booster jabs defined by the Joint Committee on Vaccinations & Immunisations.

Surgeries in the Network offer a range of Vaccinations routinely provided to adults, young people and children.  Please visit individual surgery websites for more information on vaccinations offered.

COVID-19 Booster Vaccination Programme

Currently there are no further COVID vaccination clinics scheduled. 

The Programme will recommence with the Winter 2022 Vaccination Programme this Autumn.  Details of further COVID-19 booster vaccination clinics will be published on this page when arrangements are finalised.

Had a COVID-19 infection?

If you've had a positive COVID-19 test, you need to wait before getting any dose of the vaccine.

You need to:

  • wait 4 weeks (28 days) if you're aged 18 years old or over
  • wait 12 weeks (84 days) if you're aged 5 to 17 years old if not immunosuppressed
  • wait 4 weeks (28 days) if you're aged 12 to 17 years old and at high-risk from COVID-19

This starts from the date you had symptoms, or the date of the positive test if you did not have any symptoms.
