 COVID Vaccination 

The NHS started offering the COVID-19 vaccine in December 2020. Since then, we have vaccinated over 85% of our highest priority groups (groups1-9) at our local Hub in Finchley. The hub closed in June 2021.

All Adults aged 18 and over can now book their Covid vaccination via: https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/coronavirus-vaccination/ or by calling 119. 

Booster vaccination for the most vulnerable groups started in September 2021 via local Hub sites within our PCN (Primary Care Network). You will be contacted once eligible to book your booster vaccination.

For information about who will be eligible for a booster vaccination visit: Coronavirus (COVID-19) booster vaccine - NHS (www.nhs.uk)

The NHS is awaiting national guidance that lets us extend the availability of COVID-19 booster jabs to all adults, a minimum of three months after receiving their second jabs. Thank you for your patience while we put this in place. For the time being, please only contact us for your booster jab if you are over the age of 50, and it has been more than six months since you had your second jab. If this does not apply to you, then an announcement will be made when you can get your booster. Alternatively, please call 119 for advice.
