Over 70? Get the Covid vaccine now!

12 Feb 2021

There are still a lot of people over 70 in Islington who haven't taken up the Covid-19 vaccine, for a variety of reasons. Here is some information for anyone who is over 70 or has a relative or friend who is.

Anyone over 64 now can book themselves an appointment for their first vaccination on www.nhs.uk. You can also book by ringing 119. You must book first, so that clinics can ensure social distancing and that there is enough vaccine available on the day.

When you book your appointment you can choose where to get your vaccination. If you are having difficulty booking online or on the phone, contact us on 07483 149 519 and we will try to support you to make the appointment.


Your GP will also try to contact you to book you in. If you haven’t been contacted already, this could be because you are not registered with a GP or have recently moved. You can find your nearest GP on the NHS website. As well as getting access to Covid-19 vaccines, being registered means you will be invited to important health checks and can get medical help more easily.

If you have booked an appointment but need to rearrange it, you can do so through the website or by ringing 119.  If you can’t attend your appointment, please rearrange it so that the appointment slot can be given to someone else.  

If you have already had your first dose, please wait for the NHS to contact you for your second appointment. It is very important that you attend your second appointment to give you the best protection against the virus.
