A strong partnership of councils, NHS organisations, voluntary and community organisations across Barnet, Camden, Enfield, Haringey and Islington, is working closely together to deliver the Covid-19 vaccination programme. We have agreed a clear plan to deliver the largest vaccination programme across north central London in our history.
The first stocks of the Pfizer / BioNTech Covid-19 vaccine have been delivered to the Royal Free Hospital and some local GP surgeries. In line with national guidance, the vaccine is first being offered to those over 80 years old, plus frontline NHS staff and those working in care homes. Please don’t contact your GP – you will be contacted as soon as it is your turn to come forward.
Every batch of Covid-19 vaccines undergoes stringent tests to ensure its safety before it can be used, so please take up your invite and make sure you attend your appointments when you arrange them.
Vaccines are our best defence against the virus but with cases rising rapidly across London, we can’t afford to drop our guard. Please follow the guidance to protect yourselves and your family – keep 2 metres apart from anyone outside your household or bubble, regularly wash your hands for 20 seconds or more and cover your face and nose when you are in public indoor spaces.
