COVID-19 vaccine

IMPORTANT MESSAGE:
If you are eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine, you can book your vaccine online at www.nhs.uk/covid-vaccination or by speaking to your GP surgery. We are also running pop-up clinics across south-east London – more information here.

See guidance on frontline health or social care workers, and the high and moderate risk categories here.

The NHS has planned extensively to deliver the largest vaccination programme in our history. The first COVID-19 vaccine (Pfizer/BioNTech) has been rigorously tested and confirmed as safe and highly effective by the expert Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA). The Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine rollout began on 8 December 2020 and the second vaccine, Oxford University/AstraZeneca, in early January 2021. A third Covid vaccine, Moderna was approved by the MHRA in January.

The Coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccine is safe and effective and gives you the best protection against coronavirus.


Additional COVID-19 vaccination pop-up clinics

If you are eligible for a COVID vaccination and in the national cohorts one to nine, you can get your first dose of the COVID vaccination from a number of walk-in and pop-up clinics this weekend and next week.
