  2. At local clinics in Tower Hamlets, set up by the council and local NHS. Appointments at local clinics can be booked through our online system or by calling the council helpline 020 7364 3030 (Monday- Friday, 9am - 5pm).

Covid-19 booster vaccination programme

Covid-19 vaccines provide high levels of protection against hospitalisation or dying from the Covid-19.

To maintain this high level of protection through the coming winter, booster vaccines will be offered to those who are more at risk from serious disease, and who were among the first to be vaccinated during the programme. Booster vaccines will start to be offered in September 2021 to the following groups:

  • those living in residential care homes for older adults
  • all adults aged 50 years or over
  • frontline health and social care workers
  • all those aged 16 to 49 years with underlying health conditions that put them at higher risk of severe Covid-19, and adult carers
  • adult household contacts of immunosuppressed individuals

The Covid-19 booster vaccine will be offered to those eligible who received two doses of the Covid-19 vaccine at least 6 months ago.

The booster vaccine is being given as a precautionary measure to maintain a high level of protection in vulnerable adults throughout winter. Early data in older individuals suggests that the protection provided by vaccines against severe Covid-19 decreases gradually over time.

The Pfizer vaccine will be given in the booster programme, regardless of which vaccine someone received for their primary doses. Alternatively, a half dose of the Moderna vaccine may be offered.

As most younger adults will only have received their second Covid-19 vaccine dose by late summer or early autumn, the benefits of booster vaccination in this group will be considered at a later time.

More information on availability of the booster vaccine locally will be published on the council website.

A third dose for severely immunosuppressed

This booster vaccine advice is separate from, and does not supersede, recent advice on a third primary dose of vaccine for the severely immunosuppressed. There will be a review into whether the severely immunosuppressed will also requires a further booster at a later date, following completion of their 3-dose of the vaccine.

29 new vaccination sites set to open across north east London

It has never been easier to get vaccinated against Covid-19 in north east London.

The first of 29 new local vaccination sites have started to open this week. With the rest to follow over the coming two weeks, this means there will be nearly 100 places to get your free vaccination.

The sites are spread across all our boroughs and the City of London and this map shows where they are.

With the prospect of cases and hospitalisations rising again this winter, GPs are urging people to get vaccinated now to protect themselves and their loved ones, and to avoid having to self-isolate.

The NHS in north east London has now given over 2.3 million Covid-19 jabs and is opening the new sites to give everyone the chance to get vaccinated easily, safely and in a way that is most convenient for them.

Be alert to Covid-19 vaccination passport scams

Recently scam emails and texts have been sent that appear to come from the NHS and invite people to register for their Covid-19 Pass, which shows an individual’s vaccination status.

The emails and texts look convincing but are not real. Instead of explaining how someone can access their Covid-19 Pass for free – through the NHS App, by calling 119,  or on the NHS website – they ask for payment for a Covid-19 pass.

The official NHS App is free to download and allows a person to download their Covid-19 Pass, which is required for travel abroad and may need to be shown to access some venues and events. The NHS will never ask for bank details to access the app, or to get a Covid-19 Pass. Covid-19 passes can also be requested online.

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.
