NHS inviting people aged 25 and over for life-saving COVID-19 jab

08 June 2021

The NHS COVID vaccination programme is open to those aged 25 and over or with relevant conditions or roles.

UPDATE 8 June: The NHS COVID vaccination programme is open to those aged 25 and over or with relevant conditions or roles.

Pfizer vaccine is available at all NW London NHS mass vaccination centres. These offer booked and walk-in appointments.

There are also a variety of other centres who can be found on your borough's website or local CCG website. 

Around 75% of the population have had one dose, 50% have had both doses. 

Pregnant women will also be able to book through the national booking service  and will be directed to vaccination centres offering Pfizer and Moderna in their local area in line with JCVI Guidance. They can also speak to their GP practice or maternity service if they have any questions about the coronavirus vaccine or can talk to a healthcare professional at their appointment.

Text invitations appear as an alert from ‘NHSvaccine’, including a web link to the NHS website to reserve an appointment.

People who cannot go online can call the service on 119 instead to book their jab.

Vaccinations are now being administered at more than 1,600 sites across the country, including mosques, museums and rugby grounds, meaning the vast majority of the people live within 10 miles of at least one vaccination service.

The NHS is also sending text reminders to people who have not yet taken up their offer of jab and also to people overdue their second dose to ensure nobody is left behind.

The NHS currently vaccinates using three vaccines, Pfizer, Moderna, and AstraZeneca, all of which have been approved as safe and effective by the world leading medical regulator the MHRA. 

No vaccination of the public takes place on either the Chelsea and Westminster hospital or West Middlesex sites—please find your nearest vaccination on www.nhs.uk or by calling 119.
