Rise in new variants and the vaccine
Across all NW London boroughs [Brent, Harrow, Hillingdon, Hounslow, Ealing, Hammersmith and Fulham, Kensington and Chelsea and Westminster], we are seeing a rise in the rates of new Covid-19 variants.
There is no evidence to suggest the Covid-19 vaccine is not working in terms of providing protection against variants, but it has never been more important to come forward for your first vaccine and ensure you have your second for maximum protection.
All our large vaccination centres listed below will all be providing Pfizer vaccines from tomorrow.
Anyone over the age of 36 can now book at https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/coronavirus-vaccination/or walk-in to one of our vaccination centres for a first dose of the vaccine. GPs are also sending invites, so you can book in.
Walk-in availability varies, booking guarantees you a slot, services are open 09:00 – 19:00.

To help ensure residents get the maximum protection possible, we are bringing forward the date of second vaccines from 12 weeks to 8 weeks.
If you had a vaccine at a GP service, you will be texted inviting you to attend a new date. If you attended a pharmacy or large vaccination centre and booked your seconded dose through the national booking system www.nhs.uk — you will be texted to invite you to change your second appointment. You will need to cancel the appointment you have and rebook — there are plenty of appointments available to do this.
