Covid-19; Vaccines and Getting the Help You Need

Covid-19 vaccines

People aged 16-17 can now get a Covid-19 vaccine to protect yourself and those around you from Covid-19.

You can walk into the vaccination centres listed here without an appointment (no need to book, just turn up) and get your Pfizer jab now.  You do not need to come with a parent/guardian, but please bring proof of age.

For all adults, if you were contacted but have not booked your appointments, you’re still eligible and can book your appointments anytime.

We urge everyone eligible who has not yet had their first vaccine to book on the national booking system or call 119.

If you have had your first vaccine, please make sure you have your second vaccine to ensure maximum protection.

If you have specific concerns about taking the vaccine and would like to talk to a health professional please contact your GP.

There is comprehensive information, guidance, and answers to questions, including vaccination information for pregnant women, frontline health and social care staff and carers at COVID-19 Vaccination programme | East London Health & Care Partnership (eastlondonhcp.nhs.uk)

NHS England and NHS Improvement and Public Health England have just issued a useful letter which advises people without an NHS number, including people who are migrants, how to get the Covid-19 vaccine. The letter also advises how to register at a GP practice.  You can download the letter here.
