Kendal v Covid

Latest News on Vaccination Programme in Kendal

General Practices in Kendal are open and continuing to see patients. We ask that everyone wears a mask when inside our buildings, and cancels their appointment if they have a new persistence cough, high fever, or lose their sense of smell. In these situations, please book a COVID PCR test by following this link – Get a free PCR test to check if you have coronavirus (COVID-19).

 Unless you hear from us, your nurse or GP appointment is continuing as planned. We understand that NHS England will be releasing more guidance soon, but in the meantime we are continuing with our usual appointments.

Kendal Primary Care Network along with our partner organisation are increasing the number of COVID vaccinations available via the National Booking System.

Please book your COVID booster or initial COVID vaccines by following this link – Book or manage a coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccination – NHS (www.nhs.uk).

Everyone over 18 can book a COVID booster appointment 3 months after their second vaccine. Getting a booster is the best way to protect yourself from the Omicron variant – boosters are around 70-80% effective against Omicron.

Thank you for your continued support at this challenging time.
