Haringey coronavirus (COVID-19) updates
The rollout of the COVID-19 vaccination programme has reached a significant milestone this week after 100,000 people received their jab in Haringey.
Latest figures from the NHS show 100,600 people across the borough have now had their first dose of the vaccine, and 40,220 people have now had both doses.
With the vaccination programme continuing to be rolled out at pace, the NHS is on track to offer all UK adults their first jab by the end of July. Everyone aged 40 years old and over is currently being invited to book their COVID-19 vaccine appointment (external link).
The vaccine programme is proving to be the UK’s best defence against the virus with recent research released by Public Health England (external link) showing that the vaccine is effective in both preventing cases of COVID-19 and reducing the severity of the virus in those who have been vaccinated.
When you are invited for your COVID-19 vaccine, please take it. But if for some reason, you have been unable to book your appointment or are not able to attend during normal working hours, then come along to our pop-up clinic in Bounds Green this weekend.
Date: Saturday 8 May 2021
Address: Bounds Green Group Practice, Gordon road, N11 2PF
Please only attend if:
- You’re aged 40 years and over
- You’re having your first dose of the vaccine

Getting the vaccine will help to protect you and your loved ones from COVID-19. It will also help to stop the spread of the virus, making the community safer and enabling Haringey to get back to normal.
Breathing Space, a new debt respite scheme, launched today (4 May 2021), giving eligible people time to take steps towards managing their debt. The initiative provides temporary protection from most types of debt collection, by halting enforcement action from creditors and freezing interest and fees for a set period.
Under the scheme, the standard Breathing space option provides applicants with a 60-day period in which interest and fees associated with qualifying debts will be paused, while the individual receives professional debt advice to find a long-term solution to their financial difficulties.
There is also an alternative option for those receiving a mental health crisis treatment. Under the mental health crisis Breathing Space scheme, successful applicants will be granted a pause on interest and fees associated with qualifying debts for the duration of their crisis treatment, plus 30 days.
