Coronavirus: COVID-19 vaccine

PUBLIC INFORMATION PAGES FROM CAMDEN COUNCIL

The COVID-19 vaccine is safe and effective, and gives the best protection against coronavirus.

When you’re eligible to get a vaccination, the NHS will be in touch, so make sure you’re registered with a GP and that they have your most up-to-date contact details. The vaccine will help save lives so please consider having it when it’s your turn.

If you’re 70 or over or clinically extremely vulnerable and have not yet been contacted, you can now book your own vaccine appointment at a nearby vaccination centre like the Francis Crick Institute or the Royal Free Hospital.

Visit nhs.uk/coronavirusvaccine or call 119 for free.

However, if you would prefer to have the vaccine at a GP surgery, please wait to be contacted.

Vaccine Q&A event

On Tuesday 16 February from 5.30 to 7pm, Healthwatch Camden will host a virtual Q&A with local GPs and Camden’s Director of Public Health to answer questions about the COVID-19 vaccine.

Register for the event, accessible via Zoom or landline, at camden.gov.uk/healthwatchevent or phone Healthwatch Camden on 020 7383 2402.

Submit your questions in advance when you register, or email shelly.khan@healthwatchcamden.co.uk
