Since December 2020, the COVID-19 Vaccination Programme has been running across North Central London (NCL), vaccinating patients and frontline health and social care staff in Barnet, Camden, Enfield, Haringey and Islington. Vaccinations will offer protection for us all and we have been inviting groups to be vaccinated in line with the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) priority groups.
Update on covid vaccine booking for health and social care staff
There are different options for how care staff can book an appointment.
You can use the National Booking System to book a specific appointment at a wide range of vaccine centres in north London and across the country. You can do this by visiting this webpage or by calling 119.
NHS and care staff can also use drop in sessions that may suit people with changing schedules that cannot commit to a specific appointment time. The list of drop in sessions will change week by week and are listed below.
What to bring
You must bring ID (either staff photo ID or proof of employment such as a letter from your employer or payslip within the last three months). You will not be able to receive a vaccination without the necessary identification
Which vaccine is provided?
The Oxford / AstraZeneca vaccine is being provided at the Hornsey (Haringey) and vaccination centres and pharmacies. More information about this vaccine can be found here.
The Islington Business Design Centre (Islington) is providing the Moderna and Pfizer vaccine.
StoneX (Barnet) is providing the Pfizer vaccine.
The Francis Crick Institute (Camden) is providing the Oxford/AstraZeneca vaccine and Pfizer vaccine.
If you are under the age of 40, the Moderna and Pfizer vaccine is offered at the Islington Business Design Centre. The Pfizer vaccine is offered at the StoneX stadium and Francis Crick Institute.
As a Health & Social Care worker you are entitled to have the vaccine – whatever your age. Even if you are below the current age that the vaccine is being offered nationally.
When you arrive for your appointment at an NCL vaccination centre, you will be able to have a private consultation with a trusted, health care professional. You can discuss with them any concerns you have about the vaccine, its safety or whether it is suitable for you and your individual circumstances. You are not under any obligation to be vaccinated following this conversation if you would prefer not to.
In the interim, please speak to 111 about clinical concerns if necessary. NCL vaccination centres do not have a phone line, so please just arrive with your ID at the allotted time.
If you have any questions, please view our Frequently asked questions webpage. For queries related to the site itself, such as parking or facilities, please visit the Vaccination centre webpage Future dates, times and locations will be added as they become available. Please keep checking back. We also have dedicated pages about the vaccine for care staff, which are here.
Future dates, times and locations will be added as they become available. Please keep checking back.
If you have already received your first vaccination, your second appointment remains as planned.
If you attend one of the above vaccination appointments, you will be notified of the process to organise your second appointment on site. If you have not been notified, please call 119 to organise a second appointment.
Please note health and social care workers fall in the JCVI cohort 1-9 and therefore are eligible to have their second dose at eight weeks. Text messages have been sent out to those with second appointments originally scheduled at 12 weeks to bring them forwards, but please call 119 to organise if you have not been contacted.
Please remember to bring ID to your second appointment.
Should you have further questions on this process, please contact email@example.com
