Covid-19 vaccinations

Find out how and where to get the Covid-19 vaccine in Islington, as well as support and other factual information

There are plenty of places you can now get fully vaccinated in Islington. Please see below for more info.

It is now a legal requirement to wear a face covering in shops, hairdressers and other indoor settings, unless you are exempt, and we recommend you wear one in any crowded area.  

To help keep yourself and your communities safe, please take a few simple safety measures in your day-to-day life, including to get a lateral flow test before mixing with others, and to stay home and get a PCR test if you test positive or have Covid-19 symptoms.  Thank you.

The vaccine is the best way to protect yourself and others from Covid-19.

You can pop into a vaccine site for advice and information with no obligation to get a jab. You can also take a look at the local NHS website for answers to frequently asked questions about the vaccine, including boosters and vaccines for under 18s.

All the different types of vaccine have undergone the same rigorous tests as other medicines to ensure they are safe.

Booster vaccinations

Following the announcement on extending Covid-19 booster jabs to all adults three months after their second jabs, the NHS is working to put in place these new rules. For the time being, please do not come for your booster unless you are over 40 and it’s at least six months since your second jab.

See who is eligible for the vaccine and boosters on the NHS website.
