05 May 2021: Sutton borough update

Across South West London we have now vaccinated over half of our adult population, an incredible milestone to have passed.  We have now delivered over 880,000 vaccinations, including over 96,000 first doses in Sutton, according to the latest NHS figures.  We know there are still many more vaccines to deliver and we continue working hard to increase this, particularly in those communities and areas with a lower uptake.

  • The NHS is now inviting 40 year olds to book their vaccine through the national booking system
  • We continue to reach out and engage with our communities including pop-up clinics and engagement including walk-in clinics
  • We have now held two twilight sessions at the Thomas Wall Centre hoping to remove barriers for local people
  • Those under 30 who are eligible now and when it’s their turn, will be offered an alternative to the AZ vaccine with Moderna or Pfizer – they should contact their GP to discuss their options
