Vaccine information in community languages
NHS doctors, nurses and other frontline staff have come forward to help reassure communities that COVID-19 vaccines are safe, effective and have been independently tested to the highest standards.
NHS staff have recorded messages in some of the most commonly spoken languages – apart from English – in the capital to help ensure messages about the importance of getting a COVID-19 vaccine reach all Londoners.

A guide to vaccinations for COVID-19
The British Society for Immunology have launched a new guide to vaccinations for COVID-19 The free, easy to read guide explains how vaccines work and answers common questions as well as providing up-to-date information on the current approved COVID-19 vaccinations in the UK.
Over 70 and not vaccinated?
We have invited all our patients who are over 70 or Clinically Extremely Vulnerable (CEV) for a COVID-19 vaccination. If you are over 70 or in the CEV group and have not heard from us you can now book your vaccination in two ways.
Please either contact us and let us have your up to date contact details so that we can arrange an appointment for your vaccination, or alternatively to book your vaccination at another location you can now book by visiting www.nhs.uk/covid-vaccination or ringing 119 free. You no longer need a letter.
Covid-19 vaccinations will be provided through a range of local NHS services. The vaccines will be available to everyone over 18 years old. People will be invited for vaccination based on a nationally set priority list. The elderly and most at risk from Covid-19 will be vaccinated first
You do not need to contact the surgery until you receive a letter, text or phone call about getting the Covid-19 vaccines. Our phone lines are very busy and we would appreciate your support to keep phone lines open for people needing to make appointments for other health matters.
The vaccination programme will take several months to work through everyone, so it could be some time before you are contacted.
Please help protect yourself, friends and loved ones by getting vaccinated when you are invited.
