Enfield Council is working with NHS organisations, voluntary and community groups and local authorities across North London, including Barnet, Camden, Enfield, Haringey and Islington, to deliver the COVID-19 vaccination programme.
You will be contacted by your GP or the NHS when it's your turn to come forward. You could receive a text message, phone call or letter, inviting you to an appointment.
You should keep your vaccination appointments and arrive at the time and location given to you. It's very important to have both doses of the same vaccine to give you the best protection.
If you are 18 or over and haven't had the first COVID-19 vaccination dose, you can now arrange an appointment by visiting the NHS national booking service. You will be able to choose a time slot and location that suits you. You can also call 119 free of charge to book an appointment. Lines are open every day between 7am and 11pm.
People aged 39 and under and all pregnant women will be offered the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine as their first dose.
You can find regular updates on the service by visiting NHS vaccinations.
There are several venues in Enfield offering walk-in appointments for COVID-19 vaccinations, without needing to book in advance. To see the list of venues, visit North London Central CCG. All adults can still pre-book an appointment, as explained above.
Temporary vaccination centres will also be set up in Enfield in the coming weeks. Please check back regularly to find details of the latest vaccine pop-ups.
You don’t need to be registered with a GP or make an appointment to visit a pop-up. You can just turn up and be vaccinated.
Every batch of COVID-19 vaccine undergoes stringent tests to ensure its safety before it can be used. You can find more details on how the vaccination is given, safety information and other frequently asked questions by visiting North Central London Clinical Commissioning Group.
In February 2021, a panel of experts and GPs provided advice and information about the vaccines, and answered questions from Enfield residents to help them make an informed choice about getting vaccinated.

Vaccines are our best defence against the virus, but you should continue to follow government guidance to protect yourself and your family, even if you have had the vaccine. Keep two metres apart from anyone outside your household or bubble, regularly wash your hands for 20 seconds or more, and cover your face and nose when you are in public indoor spaces.
Enfield Council is working hard with its partners to make sure everyone has the information they need to have the confidence to take part in the biggest immunisation programme in history.
You can visit our response to coronavirus playlist on YouTube for information about COVID-19, vaccinations and the council's local response to the pandemic. There are several videos in languages spoken within the borough, including Bengali, Polish, Somali and Turkish. See an example of one of these short films below.
Enfield Council has also launched the 'V for Vaccinated' campaign. The campaign is to encourage all Enfield residents to get the coronavirus vaccine. If you're proud of getting the jab, please take a picture of yourself making the V sign, and share your photograph using the hashtag #vaccinated and #KeepEnfieldSafe, to encourage others to be vaccinated.
