The Trust's Covid-19 vaccination programme has been running since December 2020 and to date we have vaccinated around 12,000 people including staff, patients and local residents. We began with the Pfizer vaccine and are now offering the AstraZeneca vaccine.
Second doses must be the same brand of vaccine that you received for your first dose, and we will be receiving a new delivery of the Pfizer vaccine in March, when second doses are due.
Since the beginning of February the Trust has been designated a Mass Vaccination Centre, which means people who are eligible can book an appointment at one of our clinics using the National Booking Service or by calling 119, free of charge. Language translation services are available on 119. You no longer need a letter from the NHS, just your NHS number or date of birth and postcode.
Alternatively, you can book an appointment for next week using the Trust's online form. By selecting a date and time, you will effectively be booked into the clinic and can come to one of our clinics on the date and time you choose on the form.
Next week our clinics at the Lessof Auditorium, University Hospital Lewisham, and the Conference Centre, Queen Elizabeth Hospital, will be open Tuesday 16 February, Thursday 18 February and Friday 19 February, 8am to 7pm.
We can vaccinate anyone who falls into the top priority groups, which are:
- People aged over 65
- Health and social care workers
- People who are clinically extremely vulnerable (for a definition of clinically extremely vulnerable groups, please see the government website).
