Okehampton Medical Centre is asking patients not to ring the surgery to book appointments for covid booster jabs but instead to ring the national booking line 119 or follow the online link to book their appointment.

All those eligible for a booster jab should receive an invitation from the NHS and they can then book online following the link, selecting Okehampton Medical Centre as their practice.

First and second covid jabs can also be booked in this way.

The medical centre says that its staff no longer have the ability to book patients in for their jabs themselves, so people must go through the NHS booking service.
