Thousands of over-18s can get Covid-19 jabs in a new mass vaccine clinic hosted at Hackney Service Centre
Around 4,000 appointments for the Covid-19 vaccination will be available for residents at Hackney Service Centre, next to Hackney Town Hall on Saturday 10 9am-7pm and Sunday 11 July 9am-3pm.
The event will be delivering the Pfizer vaccine for those aged 18 and over who need their first dose, and those who need their second dose, which should be given 8 weeks after the first.
People are invited to either book a slot in advance online or to come on the day to get a walk-in appointment.
You do not have to be registered with a GP to get the vaccine at this pop-up, and you will not be asked for your immigration status. If there are members of your family, neighbours or friends who have not been vaccinated yet, bring them with you.
Entrance to the vaccination clinic is on Hillman Street, it is wheelchair accessible and on street level. There’ll be a managed queueing system for those with appointments and those turning up on the day, to ensure social distancing is maintained at all times. Remember to wear your face mask, unless you’re exempt.
This open access event, in the heart of Hackney Central, will allow thousands more residents to get vaccinated and kept safe from Covid-19. I am pleased that working alongside Cllr Kennedy and through a whole Council effort we can support the NHS to make this happen. I was able to get my second jab this week and want to make sure all our residents over 18 are able to get theirs, so I’m really pleased that we can have this no questions asked walk-in event alongside one of Hackney’s most iconic buildings.
We need more people in London and Hackney to take the Covid-19 vaccine to ensure our communities are kept safe from this terrible virus. The vaccine is your best protection, even against the new Delta variant. If you haven't had yours yet, or it's been 8 weeks since your first dose, make sure you come along to this event and get protected.
