New pop-up clinics in Islington will make it easier for people who are eligible for the Covid-19 vaccine – especially those who are elderly, homeless, vulnerable or in need of support – to get it closer to home.
University College Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (UCLH) is working with local NHS partners and Islington Council to provide pop-up clinics across Islington during May and June.
These follow successful pop-up clinics at House on the Rock Church and Finsbury Park Mosque earlier this year. Each pop-up clinic will be in place for two or three days in a set week and will have information available to help answer any queries or concerns people might have, with no obligation to get the jab. To find out more about the dates and locations of the pop-ups, and how to book an appointment, visit islington.gov.uk/covid-vaccinations.
Cllr Sue Lukes, Islington Council’s executive member for community safety, said: “We know we have got through this pandemic so far because we are all Islington, all our communities and partners working together. But no-one is safe until we are all safe, and we will all be safer once vaccinated. We know some have found it difficult to get to the centres, so we are bringing the centres to them! The vaccine is absolutely vital – it’s helping to bring us out of the pandemic, and we’re working with the NHS to help make it as easy as possible for people to get the vaccine close to home. Just do it!”
Tim Jaggard, acting CEO, UCLH said: “We are pleased to be working in partnership with Islington Council to ensure that everyone has easy access to the Covid-19 vaccine. Please do come forward. The vaccine is the best route out of the pandemic.”
