Community COVID-19 vaccination programme
- About the programme
- Scheduled vaccination clinics (walk-in and pre-bookable)
- Things to know before you go
In partnership with the NHS, we are offering easy access to COVID-19 vaccination for all residents aged 18 and above in areas where vaccination take-up is lower than required to protect the community.
Although the majority of adults who have been offered the COVID-19 vaccine have taken it, uptake in certain areas is still significantly lower than in other parts of Haringey.
We want to help protect vulnerable communities from COVID-19, avoiding preventable serious illness, hospital admissions and deaths.
We hope that by offering easier access to COVID-19 vaccination, many more people will take the opportunity to get vaccinated to protect themselves, their loved ones and the community.
Everyone over 18 can get vaccinated.
You do not need to be registered with a GP or in permanent residence and your migration status does not affect this. We will not share any information with the Home Office or other authorities.
Our engagement officers are calling to households in areas where vaccine take-up is lower than required to protect the community:
- They will be providing information and support to help residents get vaccinated at a time and location that suits them.
- You will be given help booking appointments or directed to nearby walk-in clinics.
- You will be given the right vaccine for your age group.
Please read all the information on this page carefully. You can call 020 8489 4431 if you need further assistance.
- You must have a gap of 8 weeks between your first and second dose of the vaccine.
- Please see our COVID-19 vaccinations page for an up-to-date schedule of vaccine clinics running in Haringey.
If you have already had your first dose of the vaccine, you can book or manage your second appointment via one of the following options:
- visit the NHS website (external link)
- call 119 for free
- contact your GP
What to bring with you
- Please bring your NHS number with you, if you have one. This will speed up the process.
- Please bring a form of ID with you if possible - this is to make sure you are getting the right vaccine for your age group.
- Please wear a face covering when attending any vaccination clinics and follow social distancing guidance if you have to wait.
If you have COVID-19 symptoms
Please do not get vaccinated if you have any symptoms of COVID-19. These are:
- a high temperature
- a new, continuous cough
- a loss or change in your sense of smell or taste
You can get a PCR test by:
- ordering a kit to be sent to your home
- booking a free PCR test appointment online
- going to a walk-in or drive-through test site
- calling 119 for free
If you have symptoms, you and everyone you live with must immediately self-isolate.
Do not leave home until you get your test results, except to post a test kit or for a PCR test appointment.
