Vaccines are safe and can prevent the worst effects of Covid-19, including long Covid effects such as extreme weakness and tiredness. Anyone aged 5 and over is now eligible for a Covid-19 vaccination. Our clinicians are on hand to talk through concerns you may have and to ensure that you can make an informed decision about getting vaccinated. Speak with someone about vaccination.
For those who require an AZ vaccination, a number of our sites in South West London are continuing to offer AZ. You can find these vaccination sites at www.swlondonccg.nhs.uk/vaccination-walk-in-clinics.

Spring Boosters of Covid Vaccine

People aged 75 and over, people who live in care homes for older people, and people aged 12 and over who have a weakened immune system, will be offered a spring booster.

Information is regularly updated on walk-in and pop up vaccination clinics.
Information regarding the delivery of housebound spring boosters to eligible patients only will follow shortly.

Covid Vaccinations for 12-15 Year Olds

Since the vaccination programme opened up to younger cohorts, nationally, more than 2.1 million doses have been given to young people aged 12 to 15, protecting them and their families.

As we begin to plan for summer months and schools holidays, please be aware that children who have had a full course of vaccination are eligible for an NHS Covid “pass letter” for international travel.

If you are 12 or over you can get an NHS COVID Pass online. You can also get an NHS COVID Pass in other formats (a letter, audio, big print or Braille) using the Get your NHS COVID Pass letter service. Please note, it can take up to 7 days to receive a Covid pass letter.

Covid Vaccinations for 5-11 Year Olds

The vaccination has now been rolled out to 5-11 year olds in order to boost immunity and increase their protection against any future waves of Covid-19.

Frequently Asked Questions

My child is healthy. What are the benefits of them having the COVID-19 vaccine?

As well as protecting children and young people against serious COVID infection, by getting vaccinated, children and young people can reduce the risk of passing on the infection to others in their family and those they come into contact with. Getting the vaccine can also make it easier for children and young people to avoid putting their lives and their education on hold because of further disruption to schools, hobbies and social events due to the virus.

My child has already had COVID-19 and has built up natural immunity. Why do they still need the vaccine?

The COVID-19 vaccine should give your child stronger protection than natural immunity from previous infection against serious complications of infection –including any future waves due to new variants. Your child should also have some protection from the mild symptoms, and vaccination lowers the risk they will pass the virus on to others around them.

My child is scared of injections –is it better to visit a vaccination site or GP/Pharmacy?

All vaccination sites, including GPs and Pharmacies are making efforts to ensure the vaccination environment is child-friendly and welcoming for families with young children. Vaccinators will make reasonable adjustments and fast-track individuals who are worried about vaccination. For example, sites may offer longer appointments and minimise the waiting time for children who are feeling anxious.
