Earlier this week, Dorset CCG reported that 160,000 residents in the county had received their Dovid-19 booster vaccine.

A spokesperson for the CCG said: "We are seeing very high demand for boosters as the number of eligible people increases and patients can either wait for their GP practice to contact them or book via the national booking service (NBS) for their booster.

"We know that demand through the national booking system is extremely high and that this is creating difficulties for some people trying to book a vaccine in their local area.

"Available appointments continue to be added to the national booking system and we would advise people to continue to keep checking for new appointment slots.

"We are keen to encourage patients to book their booster appointment for a time near to six-month’s following the second dose, but would reassure them that the 6 month interval is a minimum recommended period and receiving the booster slightly later will still provide them with protection.

"The important thing is that people continue to come forward and take up the offer as soon as suitable appointments become available.

"We’d like to thank people for their patience during this very busy time for the NHS as we deliver the largest vaccination programme in our history."
