NHS Covid-19 Vaccination Programme

The Covid-19 vaccine is safe and effective. It gives people the best protection against Covid-19.

Who can currently get the Covid-19 vaccine?

  • People aged 18 and over
  • Anyone who will turn 18 before 1 July 2021
  • The clinically extremely vulnerable aged 16 and over
  • Clinically at-risk (aged 18 – 65)
  • Adult care home residents
  • Health and social care workers
  • Anyone who is a main carer for someone at high risk from Covid-19
  • Anyone with a learning disability.

Household vaccine appointments

Anyone eligible for the Covid-19 vaccine (above) and booking locally in Tower Hamlets, can bring members of their household to get vaccinated at the same time.

Please call our helpline to book your household appointments - 020 7364 3030. It is really important to book because more vaccines are needed for a household appointment.

Two doses of the vaccine are needed

Two doses of Covid-19 vaccine are needed for maximum protection.

You should have your second vaccine appointment 8 to 12 weeks after the first.

How do I get to the Art Pavilion Vaccination Centre ?

Mile End Park has produced a map offering a visual, step-free guide from Mile End Underground Station to The Art Pavilion. 

Bus

Buses passing close to Mile End Art Pavilion are: 25, 277, D6, D7 and N25. 

Tube

The nearest underground station is Mile End. The station is in Zone 2. 

Car

There is a small drop-off area for residents who are being brought by car or taxi. There is very little car parking near the park. The local streets operate a permit system for residents. Limited parking is available at Bow Wharf. We recommend that you leave your car at home.

Transport support

Support is available for older people to get their Covid-19 vaccine from Age UK.

The team can collect you from your home in an Uber cab and take you to your vaccination site. They will wait while you have your vaccine and then take you back home.

This service is completely free to use for people who meet the criteria listed online. Anyone who would like to use this service can call 07754 751 079 or 020 8981 7124.

Please make sure you have a booked vaccination appointment.

Council vaccine helpline

Tower Hamlets residents who are eligible for the Covid-19 vaccine are being supported to book their appointment through the council's vaccine helpline - 020 7364 3030.

The helpline is staffed with call handlers who can speak eight community languages.

The team both proactively call residents who have been contacted about being vaccinated but not yet booked their appointment and answer incoming calls from eligible residents who want to book their appointment or ask questions.

If you are eligible and have not yet had your vaccine, you can book your appointment through the helpline or call for advice.

More information on the vaccine helpline, along with a set of frequently asked questions, can be found on the GP Care Group website.

Unpaid carers and the Covid-19 vaccine

Unpaid carers over the age of 18 who are not already known to health and care services can arrange their Covid-19 vaccine through the national booking system, or by calling 119. You will be asked to complete a short application process to determine eligibility.

You must be over 18 to book using the national booking service and you will need to provide your name, date of birth and your NHS number.

When you go and get your vaccine, take along with you the confirmation of your appointment, photo ID to prove your identity, and your NHS number if you have it.

You do not need to provide proof you are an unpaid carer. If you do not have a photo ID, that’s okay as you won’t be turned away, but you may be asked to confirm your identity such as your name, date of birth, and address.

Public health advice continues to be important

In the meantime, it is vitally important that we all continue to follow the national public health guidance: wash your hands regularly, wear a face covering in enclosed spaces and maintain safe social distancing. Rates of Covid-19 are high, it is still very much among us and infectious.

The risk of catching it is the same as ever for people who have not been vaccinated.

There is more information about the Covid-19 vaccine on both the government and the NHS website, so please take time to click on these links and read through these pages if you want to find out more.

There is also a Covid-19 vaccination guide for older adults leaflet available.

We will keep you updated as plans for the vaccine programme progress in Tower Hamlets.

Important information

Please remember the following information:

  • Do not attend or walk in to a vaccine centre without an appointment or being invited.
  • When eligible you will be invited for vaccination by the NHS/local GP (letter, phone follow up, text message reminder to book appointment).
  • Based on advice from the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation, the government are prioritising first doses of the Covid-19 vaccines. Please do not contact the NHS asking about second doses – updates will be given when these are being administered.
  • Do not take anyone else with you to your vaccine appointment unless absolutely necessary.
  • Please be on time for your appointment - not too early or too late.

Stay safe

There are reports of people being contacted by fraudsters offering the Covid-19 vaccine. The reports show text messages being sent providing a link for people to register their details to apply for the vaccine, some of which require payment.

These text messages and links are not sent from, or linked to, the NHS.

Please note the NHS will:

  • Never ask you to press a button on your keypad or send a text asking you to confirm you want the vaccine.
  • Never ask for payment for the vaccine or for your bank details.

If you receive a text message from an unfamiliar number:

  • Do not respond to it or click on any links.
  • Do not enter any personal or log on details.
  • Do not make any payment.
