Key information for patients about the Covid-19 vaccine
The NHS is currently offering the Covid-19 vaccine to people most at risk from the virus. St George’s is one of 50 hospital hubs across the country that is administering the vaccine to the priority groups.
The Covid-19 vaccine is safe and effective. It gives you the best protection against the virus.
As of 8 June 2021, eligible people (aged 25 and above) can book an appointment for their first dose at the St George’s Covid-19 vaccine clinic via the NHS national booking system, which you can access here.
The clinic is no longer operating a walk-in service – please only attend if you have an appointment.
You are eligible to receive your first dose at St George’s if you are:
- Aged 25 or over, or if you turn 25 before 1 July 2021
- An eligible frontline health or social care worker and you haven’t had your first dose of the vaccine yet.
The Covid-19 vaccine clinic at St George’s is located on the ground floor of Atkinson Morley wing, in the Cardiac outpatients department.
The vaccine will be offered more widely, and at other locations, as soon as possible. The order in which people will be offered the vaccine is based on advice from the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI).
Meanwhile, we must all continue to adhere to the Covid-19 restrictions and remember hands, face, space – please visit the Gov.uk website for more information on the national guidelines.
