The NHS is prioritising vaccinating people who experts have agreed will benefit the most. We will let you know when it is your turn. Please see here for advice on whos vaccinated now or here to see the priority group..
If you are aged 65 and over OR clinically extremely vulnerable (high risk-shielding patient) and have not been contacted about a first vaccination please let us know or call 119 free of charge, anytime between 7am and 11pm seven days a week. If you are aged 70 and over and housebound we have had to wait until we had the right vaccine, the right procedures and processes, so we have only recently started visiting homes - however there is no harm in ringing us to check we have you on our list.
If you are clinically vulnerable (moderate risk) or you are in receipt of a carer’s allowance, or if you are the main carer of an elderly or disabled person whose welfare may be at risk if you fall ill, you can get the vaccination at the same time when they are invited. We are vaccinating people in this cohort in batches currently 60 and over, please contact us on 020 7481 9376 ONLY if you fall in this cohort.
There is comprehensive information, guidance, and answers to questions, including vaccination information for frontline health and social care staff, carers and clinical vulnerable (moderate risk) at COVID-19 Vaccination programme | East London Health & Care Partnership (eastlondonhcp.nhs.uk)
