Every adult in England has now been offered a COVID-19 booster vaccination, including all those who are housebound. To ensure these patients can access vaccines and booster doses, general practitioners work alongside community teams, based on their knowledge of the patient and circumstances. Some patients may be able to attend Primary Care Network (PCN) designated sites with assistance and discussions should be held with families and/or carers to facilitate this. For those who are unable to travel, vaccinations will be delivered via roving units directly to an individual’s home.
