If you’re aged over 18, a carer or have an underlying health condition, call 119 or visit nhs.uk/covid-vaccination to book your COVID-19 vaccination appointment.
Your local NHS is delivering the biggest vaccination programme in its history. Everyone has an important part to play to help us with this programme of work
- The COVID-19 vaccines are safe and effective. They will give you the best protection against coronavirus.
- It’s never too late to get the Covid vaccine. It’s safe and effective, but speak to your GP if you have any concerns.
Who’s being prioritised for vaccination?
Our priority remains vaccinating the most vulnerable people in south west London. The NHS will offer you a vaccination when it’s your turn – this will be when you’re in a priority group.
What do you need to know about appointments?
When it’s your turn, you’ll be invited by the NHS to book an appointment.
Where can you get vaccinated?
The vaccination is being offered in a variety of places across south west London, including GP and pharmacy-led services, hospitals and community vaccination centres.
You may also be able to have your first vaccination at one of the following walk-in clinics in south west London – but not everyone is eligible, so please check the clinic details before deciding to go.
We continue to work hard with our partners to vaccinate our residents, with walk-in and pop up services available for those who are eligible for a first dose. At some of our sites this has now extended to those eligible for their second dose too.
All walk-in sessions and most pop-up vaccination clinics are added to our website here – this page is updated regularly and we would appreciate your support in sharing the information.
Eligible people can also continue to book first and second appointments through the national booking system.
Highlight of the week
Information in different formats and languages
You can translate all the written content on this website by using the language menu in the top right hand corner of this page.
Useful resources are available in many languages and formats, including British Sign Language, which will help you to learn more about the vaccine and how it’s being offered. The handy resources have been produced by the NHS, Public Health England and partners.
Engagement with local communities
We know that in Wandsworth some of our communities are less likely to take up the offer of the vaccine than other groups. We’re engaging with local communities to give people the chance to ask local experts about the vaccine so that they can make informed decisions and we can understand any concerns they may have.
Engagement has informed the successful delivery of sensory community clinics in Wandsworth, which were delivered alongside the Share Community for people with a learning disability and autistic people. The video walk through of the sensory clinic and how it was developed with people with a Learning Disability continues to be shared: More sensory clinics to transform vaccination experience for young people with learning disabilities and autism – South West London CCG (swlondonccg.nhs.uk)
Upcoming sessions include working with the Eritrean Refugee and Asylum seekers Love2Learn group. We are also working with Homestart Wandsworth to co-create sessions to reach young families and continue collaboration with homeless charities.
To find out more about local engagement, you can read the Wandsworth Communications and Engagement Plan.
