PATIENTS are being reminded to book their Covid jabs as soon as they are contacted by the NHS.

Constable Country Medical Practice, in East Bergholt, is vaccinating patients again this week.

Bosses have been told the surgery will be sent two deliveries of the Pfizer coronavirus vaccine.

In order to reduce wastage and allow the surgery to offer more appointments, some patients will be sent text messages to self-book an appointment online.

A statement from the surgery said: "Please try to book the appointment as soon as you get the message as they are quite limited.

"In case you miss booking the appointment or don’t get a text message then please do not worry.

"We will contact you to offer another appointment."

Patients have also been asked not to contact the surgery with regards to the vaccine rollout.
