Hammersmith & Fulham residents aged 38 or over (or at high risk from coronavirus) can now get a Covid vaccination jab without needing an invitation from their GP. Eligible frontline health workers and social care workers of any age can also receive the vaccine.

Here's how:

  • Book your vaccination appointment online
  • Call 119, free of charge (7am to 11pm, seven days a week) to book your appointment
  • Or, if you are eligible, you can walk in to the Novotel hotel NHS mass vaccination centre in central Hammersmith – no appointment needed. The walk-in services are open 9am-7pm. If you walk-in, you will need to bring proof of age, your name and address and your NHS number (if you don’t have your NHS number you can still walk-in). You cannot walk-in to get your 2nd dose vaccination - these must be booked via the NHS in advance. Novotel vaccination centre is not open for walk-ins on Tuesday 18 May.

The walk-in services are dependent on vaccine availability and it is possible you will be asked to return at a later date if supplies run out on a particular day. So you may prefer to book to guarantee a vaccine slot.

You can also book your appointment to receive the jab at smaller vaccination clinics held in White City, Hammersmith Grove and Parsons Green. 

If you have any questions about the vaccine, getting to the vaccine centre or facilities at the centre please contact the H&F CAN helpline on Freephone 0800 145 6095, open 8am to 6pm seven days a week, or email:

Free transport is being offered to your Covid-19 vaccination appointment. If you’re over 50 and live in H&F, Age UK is organising free minicab rides to and from the vaccination to make it even easier to get your jab. The service runs until the end of June. Call Amy Shallon on 07947 188 221 or email

If you would prefer to receive the vaccine at a GP surgery, please wait to be contacted.

The sooner we’re all vaccinated, the sooner we can see our friends and get London back to normal. The Covid vaccine is safe, effective and gives you the best protection from coronavirus.
