There are a range of venues in North Central London offering walk-in appointments for COVID-19 vaccinations, without needing to book an appointment in advance. You do not need to be registered with a GP to get your jab at walk-in centre. They include:

•    Arsenal Emirates Stadium (Book on Eventbrite , or by calling the We are Islington helpline        020 7527 8222. Walk-in appointments available),
•    StoneX in Barnet
•    Dugdale Centre in Barnet.

There is also a list of  London sites which will be updated

People who attend a walk-in clinic for their first dose will have their vaccination record updated online and will then be able to book in their second dose appointment using the national booking system.

Some venues are offering walk-in appointments for second jabs if it has been at least eight weeks since the first dose for people aged over 40, and 12 weeks for people aged under 40. 

Getting the second dose is vital to getting longer lasting and maximum protection offered by the vaccines, with recent research also showing they are highly effective against the Delta/Indian strain of the virus.

All adults can also still pre-book a vaccine appointment at one of the 1,600 vaccination centre, pharmacy or general practice sites across the country that are available through the national booking service. There are appointments for first and second doses of Moderna available via the National Booking Service at the Islington Business Design Centre.

People who cannot go online can call the service on 119 instead to book their jab.

People aged 39 and under and all pregnant women will be offered the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine as their first dose.

If you have already had a first dose of the AstraZeneca vaccine without suffering any rare side effects, you should complete the course. This includes people aged 18 to 39 years who are health and social care workers, unpaid carers and family members of those who are immunosuppressed.
