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.
Unless you are aged 60 or over, don’t contact your GP about getting a COVID-19 vaccination. You will be contacted as soon as it’s your turn to come forward.
If you are 60 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 from 7am to 11pm every day to book an appointment.
Every batch of COVID-19 vaccine undergoes stringent tests to ensure its safety before it can be used. More details on how the vaccination is given, safety information and other frequently asked questions can be found on the vaccine page at North Central London Clinical Commissioning Group.
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.
