Covid-19 vaccinations

Waltham Forest Covid-19 vaccine rollout including how to get your booster

We are helping NHS deliver COVID vaccinations as quickly as possible. To do this we encourage everyone to get their  1st, 2nd or booster at any of our local vaccine clinics or pharmacies.  All our community clinics are walk-in’s but the availability of clinics are changing on a daily basis so please check our listing regularly.

You can also book online on the National Booking Site or call 119 to make an appointment at a national site near you.

Everyone aged 12 and over can get a 1st and 2nd dose of the vaccine.

It’s important to protect yourself and others by getting vaccinated, especially if you haven’t had your first dose yet. 

A booster dose of the Covid-19 vaccine is available for everyone aged 16 and over, and some children aged 12 to 15, who have had 2 doses of the vaccine at least 3 months ago.

A booster helps improve the protection you have from your first 2 doses of the vaccine. It helps give you longer-term protection against getting seriously ill from Covid-19.
