Vaccinations

The COVID-19 vaccine has been proven to be safe and effective at protecting people against coronavirus.

The COVID-19 vaccine is currently being offered to anyone aged 18 or over. For maximum protection it's really important to get your second dose, available 8 weeks after your first.

If you are 18 or over you can book your COVID-19 vaccination appointment without needing an invitation letter by visiting the NHS vaccination website or calling NHS 119, free of charge.  

You can also find out more about vaccination events and walk-in clinics in Westminster.

Please book and attend your appointment. You can book your appointment at a vaccination centre, pop-up centre or a community pharmacy.

Second dose

It is important that you have both doses of your vaccine. The first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine offers a high level of protection, but to get longer-lasting protection you will need to get a second dose. You should book an appointment for your second dose for 8 weeks after your first. If your appointment is booked for more than 8 weeks after your first dose, you can rebook either through the national booking system or by calling NHS 119, free of charge.

If eight weeks have passed since you had your first vaccine, you can walk-in to an NHS vaccination centre for your second.  You can check daily walk-in availability via the NHS in North West London.

Further information

The COVID-19 vaccination sites are run by NHS professionals and have extra measures in place to keep you safe during your visit. 

If you would prefer to receive the vaccine at a GP surgery, please wait to be contacted.

The sooner we are all vaccinated, the sooner we can get back to normal.

We know many of you will have questions about the vaccine and are concerned about the safety of the vaccinations.
