Lakeside Medical and COVID-19

We currently offer Telehealth appointments for all patients. If you are experiencing fever, cough, sore throat, shortness of breath, gastro symptoms, are in home quarantine, in contact with anyone in home quarantine or are awaiting a COVID-19 test result, please call or book a telehealth appointment online. We can offer a car park appointment for children aged under 15 years of age, this can be booked online or by calling reception.

If you would like to book in for a COVID-19 vaccination, boosters are available for patients aged 16 years and over, who have received their second dose 3 or more months ago, or 3 months after a COVID-19 infection. You can book your booster, dose 1 and 2 by clicking the link below, or calling reception to book in.

The government has announced that we are now able to offer a second booster dose for patients who meet select criteria and for everyone aged 65+. This can only be booked 4 months or more after your first booster dose OR 3 months after a COVID-19 infection.  Bookings can be made online by choosing Pfizer Booster Vaccination. If you are outside of the 65+ age group and think that you are eligible, it is advised that you speak with your doctor by booking a telehealth consultation, or by coming into the practice for an appointment.

COVID-19 Vaccines

We have Covid 19 vaccines available suitable for patients aged 12 years old and above. We can give both first and second doses, and a third dose to patients who are immunocompromised. Booster doses are now available for patients 18 years and above to be given at 3 months after your second dose of any vaccine. For patients who had their vaccine elsewhere please produce proof of your second vaccine and we can book your booster dose. Those aged 65+ are now eligible for a second booster which can be booked four months from the date of the first booster dose.
