City of London pop-up vaccination clinic open on October 13


People aged 16 and over can get their first or second COVID jabs at a new City of London pop-up vaccination clinic on Wednesday October 13.

NHS staff will be delivering the Pfizer jab at the City Wellbeing Centre, at 75 Middlesex Street, between 10am-4pm.

The second COVID jab can only be given eight weeks after the first. Children aged 16 and 17 only require one dose of the vaccine.

Chair of the City of London Corporation’s Community and Children’s Services Committee, Ruby Sayed, said: “We’re encouraging City residents and workers to take up the offer of the COVID-19 vaccine if they have not already done so.

“The vaccine protects you, your friends and family, too. Getting vaccinated cuts the risk of serious illness, and eases pressure on the NHS. We want to protect every City resident as we head into the winter period.”

No booking is required to receive either jab. You do not have to be registered with a GP to get the vaccine at this pop-up, and you will not be asked for your immigration status.

If there are members of your family, neighbours or friends who have not been vaccinated yet, you can bring them with you.

There will be a managed queueing system to ensure social distancing is maintained at all times.

You must also wear a face covering, unless exempt, when visiting the City of London pop-up vaccination clinic.
