Who is eligible for the COVID-19 vaccination
How to get a vaccine if you're eligible
To get vaccinated you can:
- book using the NHS national booking service (for ages five and above)
- use a walk-in clinic in Southwark (some accept children five and over, all accept 18+)
Get the recommended number of doses for the best protection
One dose of the vaccine should give you good protection from COVID-19 from three or four weeks after you've had it. The advice for most adults is they should get two doses, plus a booster. Children of age five and above are recommended to get two or more doses.
Keep yourself, friends and family safe by getting the vaccine.
COVID-19 vaccine boosters
The protection you get from a COVID-19 vaccine decreases over time. So, if you’re 50 or over, in an at-risk group or pregnant you can improve your immunity with a booster dose.
