In the latest stage of the NHS vaccination programme, it has been confirmed that 16 and 17 year olds are now eligible to take up the first dose of the Covid-19 vaccine, protecting themselves, their family and friends.
As well as some local GPs beginning to contact those aged 16 and 17 years registered with their practices, we are pleased to confirm that we now have a number of sites across South West London, that are able to offer walk-ins to this group. We expect the National Booking System to open up to bookings for this age group in the near future.
In Sutton, St Nicholas Centre is open from 9am to 6pm daily until Sunday 22 August and is offering walk-in sessions for Pfizer vaccinations to anyone aged over 16 for their first dose and anyone who had their first dose 8 weeks ago or longer.
To date, we have delivered over 1.8million vaccines in South West London, meaning that 83% of the population have had their first vaccine.
For those who are still unsure, we continue to encourage them to come and have a chat at one of our vaccination centres to get the facts.
We would encourage anyone who still has questions about the Covid-19 vaccine to come and talk to our friendly teams so they can make the best decision for them.
