Covid-19 vaccinations

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

The vaccine is the best way to protect ourselves and others from Covid-19. All the different types of vaccine have undergone the same rigorous tests as all other medicines to ensure they are safe. They have all been approved by the independent Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA).

Take a look at the local NHS website for answers to frequently asked questions about the vaccine, including boosters and vaccines for under 18s. You can check who is eligible for the vaccine and boosters on the NHS website.

If you are eligible for the booster, you will get a letter from the NHS and/or a text from your GP, six months after you had your second jab. In the meantime, they ask that you do not call your GP unless you need medical attention. 

How and where to get vaccinated

Walk-in clinics

Partners in health services are busy putting plans in place, following recent announcements of change in eligibility. In the meantime, if you have children aged 12 to 15, please do not call your GP to ask when they will get an appointment, as they will be in touch with you. 

Go to the local NHS website to see where you can get vaccinated without an appointment.

Vaccination centres near you

To help make it easier for residents in areas where we know a lot of people have yet to be vaccinated with their first dose, we're providing local community pop-up clinics throughout the summer to make it easier for people to access the vaccine. 

You can get your first and second dose of the vaccine at these clinics. Please note you can only get your second dose if your first dose was at least 8 weeks ago. 16 and 17 year olds are currently being offered one dose only, as will 12 to 15 year olds who are not at high risk. 

You are welcome to bring your children to these local clinics while you have your vaccine.
