COVID-19 Vaccination Programme

News: Vaccine Rollout

The first phase of the NHS COVID-19 vaccination programme has begun.  Please help the NHS and do not contact your GP surgery asking for a vaccination.  The NHS will be in touch when it's your turn to be vaccinated.

When it is the right time people will receive an invitation to come forward. For most people this will be a letter, either from their GP or from NHS England. This letter will include all the information a person will need to book appointments, including their NHS number.

We are asking the public not to contact the NHS to get an appointment until they get their letter.

Please continue to follow the recommended guidance including regularly washing your hands, wearing a mask and keeping a safe distance. Help us control the virus and save lives. 

This is going to be a long-term vaccination programme and it will likely take until at least Spring before all high-risk groups have been offered a COVID-19 vaccine.  When you are contacted and offered the vaccination,  please attend your booked appointment. 

Information on the vaccine is available on this South East London Clinical Commissioning Group page.
