Earlier this week, Dorset CCG reported that 160,000 residents of the county had received their Dovid-19 booster vaccine.
A CCG spokesperson said: âWe are seeing a very high demand for reminders as the number of eligible people increases and patients can either wait for their GP to contact them or book through the National Reservation Service (NBS ) for their reminder.
âWe know that the demand through the national reservation system is extremely high and that this creates difficulties for some people trying to reserve a vaccine in their area.
âAvailable appointments continue to be added to the national reservation system and we advise people to continue to search for new appointment slots.
“We would like to encourage patients to make their reminder appointments close to six months after the second dose, but we will reassure them that the 6 month interval is a minimum recommended period and that receiving the reminder a little later will still provide them protection.
âThe important thing is that people continue to come forward and accept the offer as soon as suitable appointments become available.
âWe would like to thank people for their patience during this very busy time for the NHS as we deliver the largest vaccination program in our history. ”
