How to book a COVID-19 vaccine
Getting two doses of a COVID-19 vaccine is the best way to protect yourself and others against serious illness and help get London back to normal.
COVID-19 vaccines have been independently tested and are safe. The side effects are normally very mild.
You can get the COVID-19 vaccine if you’re aged 18 or over. There are two ways to do this:
- If you are registered with a GP you can call 119 or
- You can also choose to go to a walk-in clinic for your first or second dose. You do not need to be registered with a GP or show proof of address to get your vaccination at a walk-in clinic. Information about walk-in clinics in London can be found here.
The vaccine you will be given will be the right type for your age and any medical conditions you have.
You need two doses of the same vaccine for maximum protection. These should be given 8 weeks apart.
