25/6/22 - Vaccinations from Milford Hospital currently paused
There will be no COVID vaccinations from Milford War Memorial Hospital during July or August. If you are still due a vaccination you can still book using the National Booking Service but will need to be seen elsewhere.
We expect the vaccination centre will be opening again in September for an Autumn Booster campaign.
26/4/22 - 5-11 year old vaccinations
We have vaccinated those aged 5-11 with underlying health problems but will not be vaccinating any more in this age group at Milford Hospital. Vaccinations are available from other locations and can be booked via the National Booking Service or by calling 119.
9/4/22 - SPRING BOOSTER UPDATE
We have completed Spring boosters for our Nursing and Care Home patients. We are now providing Spring Boosters to those aged 75 and over who are at least 6 months after their last dose.
Those aged 12 and over who are immunosuppressed and were eligible for a third primary dose (and have now had four doses) should have their next dose 3 months after their last dose.
For this next phase of the vaccination programme, we will be taking bookings in a different way. You will not receive booking links by text like you did in the past but instead should make use of the National Booking Service. You can also do this by phone on 119. PLEASE BRING YOUR BOOKING REFERENCE NUMBER TO YOUR APPOINTMENT.
If there is no availability at Milford then you can use that same system to book elsewhere. Appointments only appear 4 weeks in advance so you can try checking back on a Saturday or Sunday when new appointments should become available for booking.

18/8/21 - Information for young people
