Local NHS to ‘super-size’ the South West London vaccination effort this weekend

2 July 2021

Many walk-in NHS COVID-19 vaccination sites will be operating this weekend and anyone aged 18 or over can reserve a slot or walk in on the day. First and second dose are available, second dose with a minimum eight week gap.

For information about walk-in and pop-ups visit https://swlondonccg.nhs.uk/covid/where-can-you-get-vaccinated/vaccination-walk-in-clinics/    

It has never been easier to get protected and NHS staff are pulling out all the stops to make jabs convenient for young adults, with vaccination sites including football stadiums, arts venues, and shopping centres, offering the protection of the Pfizer vaccine.

A football focused vaccination event, which aims to give thousands of jabs daily, will also be held at Crystal Palace’s Selhurst Park football ground. To guarantee a vaccine on the day people are encouraged to book an appointment. They can book at www.nhs.uk/covid-vaccination or walk in on the day, subject to vaccine availability.

We all have different priorities, whether that is hugging your granny, watching sport in a packed stadium, going to a club, or experiencing university, getting vaccinated is the best way to get back to normal.

The uptake we have seen among 18 to 29-year-olds in the last week shows how many young adults recognise the importance of getting protected, we hope that you can help us spread the message.

Tell us how we are doing we'd love to have your opinion
