The City Corporation is encouraging eligible residents and workers in the Square Mile to receive their Covid-19 spring vaccine jabs. This is to maintain immunity and protect against severe illness.

The final day to book appointments for first and second doses, as well as the spring vaccine is June 30.

The Covid- 19 spring vaccine is available to:

  • Individuals aged 75 or over
  • Those living in care homes
  • People aged six months and above with weakened immune systems

How to get your covid vaccine:

  • Anyone eligible can book a vaccine appointment via the NHS website or by calling 119 for free, with parents or carers able to book a Covid-19 vaccination for children under 16 on their behalf.
  • A local NHS service, such as your GP surgery, may also contact you, to get a vaccine for you or your child.
  • Eligible people can book or walk into Chauhan Chemist in the City of London. Other local sites include Richmond Road Medical Centre and Kingsland Pharmacy in Hackney and Murrays Pharmacy Islington, amongst many others. You can also use the NHS tool to find a pharmacy offering COVID-19 vaccinations near you.

Chairman of the City Corporation’s Community and Children’s Services Committee, Helen Fentimen, said: “Getting your Spring vaccine is vital to maintain your protection against COVID-19. It helps safeguard you, your family, and your community from severe illness.

“I urge everyone who’s eligible to book their vaccine or simply visit their local walk-in service.”
