- COVID-19 case rates have generally flattened over the past few weeks. However, there has been a slight increase recently. This is likely due to rising numbers of COVID-19 cases in schools since the start of term, many of which are asymptomatic cases. A similar trend is seen in London and England.
- Even though most restrictions have been lifted, everyone (including those vaccinated) should maintain caution and continue to follow the current guidance (external link). It is still recommended that you wear a face covering in enclosed spaces where you come into contact with people you don’t normally meet, for example on public transport. It is also preferable to meet outside where you can and maintain social distancing where possible, especially if someone is clinically extremely vulnerable, or not fully vaccinated.
- More than 49 million people in the UK have now received their first dose of COVID-19 vaccine (external link) while 45 million people have had both doses. The vaccine is safe and effective and is a key tool in our fight against the pandemic. Although the vaccine does not completely prevent you from catching COVID-19, it does help to protect yourself and others from serious COVID-19 infection. This is supported by the low rates of COVID-19 hospital admissions and deaths in the borough in the past few months.
- However, until we understand the full impact of the vaccine, everyone (including those vaccinated) should continue to follow the guidance on social distancing.
- On 17 September 2021, the NHS began a programme of booster COVID-19 vaccinations after it was approved by the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI). Those eligible for the booster jab are strongly encouraged to do so. Please note you can only get a booster vaccine if it has been at least 6 months since your second vaccine dose. Find more information on eligible groups and how to get your booster (external link).
- The NHS has also started to roll out the COVID-19 jab to school children aged 12 to 15. They are being offered one dose of the Pfizer/BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine. Most children will get their vaccination in school. Find out more about COVID vaccines for 12-15 year olds on the NHS website (external link).
- If you have not received your first dose of the vaccine, it is not too late to get it. In addition to booking online on the NHS website (external link), there are numerous pop-up vaccination sites in Haringey where you can walk in and get vaccinated. The Haringey Council website has a list of the vaccination sites.
- Haringey has launched its own vaccine bus. The vaccine bus is a partnership between Haringey Council and the local NHS, and offers an alternative, accessible way for residents to get vaccinated against COVID-19. Find out more information about the scheduled vaccine clinics at various locations in the borough.
- Even if you have been fully vaccinated, it is still important to undertake regular asymptomatic testing. This is because despite being vaccinated you may still carry the virus.
- Haringey has a dedicated rapid Lateral Flow COVID-19 test site at Tottenham Green Pools and Fitness Leisure Centre, for people who are not showing any signs of having the virus (asymptomatic). This test site will be closing on 5 November. Many places throughout the borough will continue to offer Lateral Flow Device test kits including pharmacies and the vaccine bus. These sites are not for people who have symptoms of COVID-19. If you have symptoms you should book a test on the NHS website (external link) or call 119. For more information and updates on the available test sites, please visit the COVID-19 testing in Haringey page.
- The UK Government website has a national dashboard (external link) that is updated daily with information on COVID-19, including data on cases, hospital admissions and deaths by area.
