COVID-19 Vaccination Programme

Our GP practice is committed to delivering the COVID-19 vaccination to our patients.

We are part of Altrincham Healthcare Alliance Primary Care Network (PCN) which also includes Altrincham Medical Practice, Park Medical Practice, St Johns Medical Centre and West Timperley Medical Centre and since December our PCN has been administering Covid-19 vaccines to patients of all five practices at Altrincham Health and Wellbeing Centre, 31-33 Market Street, Altrincham WA14 1PF.

Our five GP practices are committed to delivering the COVID-19 vaccination to our patients. Details regarding attending your Covid-19 vaccine appointment at Altrincham Health and Wellbeing Centre – map of the venue, parking details, a walk through video, what to bring and expect – can be seen here

We are currently inviting patients for COVID-19 boosters in line with NHS guidance. The booster is offered to patients aged 18+ if it has been more than three months since their second COVID-19 vaccination 

Details regarding the vaccination of young people aged 16 and 17 and children aged 12-15 can be found here

Please avoid contacting the GP practice regarding your COVID-19 booster appointment. Please be assured that the GP practice will be in touch with you as soon as possible. Please only attend the COVID clinic if you have a confirmed appointment.

Information regarding the Covid-19 vaccination is being constantly updated – see www.nhs.uk/covid-vaccination

  • If you have an enquiry about the COVID vaccination, you can leave a message with the COVID Vaccination Hotline (0161 912 1299). The hotline will be monitored by NHS Trafford CCG colleagues who aim to answer all enquiries within 24 hours.
