Covid-19 revaccination campaign scheduled for autumn/winter

A revaccination campaign is ‘likely to run later this year in autumn or winter’, Pulse reported last week.

The Government’s ‘roadmap’ report says: ‘To ensure the country is prepared for these scenarios and while further evidence is gathered, the Government is planning for a revaccination campaign, which is likely to run later this year in autumn or winter.

‘Any revaccination is likely to consist of a single “booster” dose of a Covid-19 vaccine: the ideal booster may be a new vaccine specifically designed against a variant form of the virus.’

Also last week, NHS Digital’s GP consultation data from January revealed that GPs and practice teams were now delivering around 75% of vaccine doses in England. The RCGP highlighted that it was still unclear as to the extent that the data reflects the work involved in the programme.

"I rely on the NASGP for advice and support. I use LocumDeck for all my locum admin – my profile, certificates, terms and conditions, practice contacts, booking and invoicing sessions, pension A and B forms, recording mileage and other expenses and monthly earnings.

Having been a locum in the past without LocumDeck, I realise how much easier LocumDeck makes my life, especially as I don't enjoy admin. It automates much of the admin for me. I can see at a glance how many bookings I have and where the gaps are. I have some practices who instant book me - booking directly into free sessions I have added. I have income/expenditure spreadsheets to share with my accountant.

I would highly recommend it to others."
