Covid-19 Vaccine

We are continuing to support our health partners with the rollout of the Covid-19 vaccine.

The local NHS Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) is working very hard to deliver jabs, starting with priority groups who are at most risk from Covid-19.

The top three priority groups are:

  1. residents in a care home for older adults and their carers
  2. all those 80 years of age and over and frontline health and social care workers
  3. all those 75 years of age and over

Nearly all over-80's in Waltham Forest have already been contacted, and the next group who will soon start to receive invitations will be those aged 75 and over.

People will be invited to receive a vaccination by their GP. Please wait for your GP to contact you. They are extremely busy and need all the help and understanding we can give them at this time and that means being patient. The Government has said that the supply of the vaccine will increase over coming weeks which we hope will increase the local rate of delivery even more.

It's also really important to still get tested for Covid-19. View our test sites and opening days and times.
