Haringey coronavirus (COVID-19) updates
You smashed it!
We’d like to extend a big 'THANK YOU' to everyone who attended our Super Sunday mass Covid-19 vaccination event, at Tottenham Hotspur stadium last Sunday. Over 4,200 Pfizer jabs were administered on the day, placing Haringey at the top of the capital’s daily jabs league table (external link). The event also had an impact on vaccination rates in neighbouring boroughs of Islington, Hackney, Camden and Barnet. The success of the event was even acknowledged at the Downing Street press conference on Wednesday! Well done to everyone who turned out, got their jab and are #ProudToProtect
Everyone over 18 can now get vaccinated, and with case rates of the COVID-19 Delta variant (first identified in India), rising rapidly across London and nationally, getting vaccinated is the best way to protect yourself, your family and the community from serious illness. With the extension of ‘freedom day’ to the 19 July, the drive is on to get as many people as possible vaccinated before then.
If you missed out on Spurs, don’t worry, there are lots of ways that you can get vaccinated. You can attend the mass vaccination event happening at Emirates Stadium, N5 from Friday 25 (today) until Monday 28 June, from 8am – 8pm. Booking (external link) is advised but you can walk in on the day too.
There are also lots of community vaccination clinics available for you to get vaccinated at a time and a place that suits you. Please see our vaccines webpage for more details.
The Balearic Islands, Madeira, Malta and a number of Caribbean islands are among the places being added to the UK’s green travel list from 4am on 30 June. People entering the UK from these places will not have to quarantine on arrival and the Government intends to allow quarantine-free travel from all amber list countries for those who have been fully vaccinated “later in the summer”.
All additions to the green list apart from Malta will also join the ‘green watchlist’, as will Israel and Jerusalem - indicating that these countries are at risk of moving from green to amber.
The full list of countries to be added to the red list includes Eritrea, Haiti, Dominican Republic, Mongolia, Tunisia and Uganda, and all measures will continue to be kept under review to protect public health. They present a high public health risk to the UK from known variants of concern (VOC), known high-risk variants under investigation (VUI) or as a result of very high in-country or territory infection rates of COVID-19.
All classification changes have been decided by ministers, informed by the latest data and analysis by the Joint Biosecurity Centre (JBC) and wider public health considerations, to help the public understand the risks to public health of travelling to different destinations. The measures announced are designed to give travellers and the travel sector more certainty and will be kept under review.

We can confirm that the mass COVID-19 vaccination clinic being held at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium this Sunday (20 June) is now open to anyone aged 18 and over. Everyone across Haringey and in neighbouring boroughs are welcome to come along and get vaccinated.
The event will be administering the Pfizer vaccine (first and second doses). If you are coming for your second dose, you should have had your first dose of Pfizer before 3 May 2021.
We advise booking an appointment (external link), or just come along on the day between 10am-6pm to receive your jab at Spurs and play your part in protecting yourself, your loved ones and the community from the spread of COVID-19, so that we can get back to normal for once and for all.
As a further incentive, all attendees will receive an exclusive 20% discount code on Stadium Tours and The Dare Skywalk that can be redeemed online.
Spurs much-loved Club Ambassadors - Ledley King, Gary Mabbutt and Ossie Ardiles - will also all be present at the start of the day to welcome attendees - arrive early to see them.
You won’t need to worry about missing the football either. The only Euros games that day kicks off at 5pm (Italy v Wales/Switzerland v Turkey), and it will screened on the concourse TVs for anyone arriving late in the day.
Entry to the stadium will be gained via Paxton Terrace (see map below), which is fully wheelchair accessible via a street level lift, with a managed queuing system in place to ensure social distancing is maintained. Face masks must be worn by attendees at all times.
Vaccinations themselves will be carried out in the stadium’s West Stand Level 1 concourse, delivered by trained vaccinators from the GP vaccination sites in Haringey.

While the vaccine clinic takes place in the West Stand, on the other side of the stadium, the NFL Home Locker Room will host a blood donation event being run by the NHS, targeted at members of the Black community – aged 17-66 – in a drive to increase blood donation to aid treatment of sickle cell disease.
A dedicated phone line - 0300 303 2737 - has been set up to book appointments on these sessions. Alternatively, potential donors can visit www.blood.co.uk (external link) to find out more and book their timed appointment slot.
