COVID-19 vaccine roll-out protecting NCL residents

The best way to protect yourself and your family from COVID-19 is to get vaccinated.

Across North Central London (NCL), thousands more people are benefiting from that protection every day, thanks to the hard work of nurses, doctors and volunteers right across the NHS.

We’re approaching people for their vaccine in order of vulnerability, which means older people, and people who work in health and care jobs are being called for their jab now.

You may be able to get your vaccination at a local GP practice, or a pharmacy; or you may be invited to one of our new large scale vaccination centres, which might be in a theatre or a sports stadium. For those who are extremely clinically vulnerable, or shielding, we may be able to visit you at home.

But don’t worry if you’ve not yet been called for your jab – we’ll be in touch when it’s your turn. We’re trying to keep phone lines to the NHS open for people who need urgent medical attention, so please don’t call us to ask when you’ll be getting your vaccination appointment.

Safe and effective for everyone

The COVID-19 vaccinations have come online quickly because scientists worldwide have worked together to make it happen.

All the vaccines we are using are safe and effective, contain no animal products, and have been approved by faith groups.

While waiting for your vaccination, and after you’ve had it, you will need to continue to follow all of the guidance to stop the spread of the virus.

But the sooner we can get most people vaccinated, the sooner we can start returning to normality.
