Hammersmith & Fulham residents aged 18 or over can now get a Covid vaccination jab.

If you've been invited to book because you're turning 18 soon, please book a date for your first dose vaccination that is on or after your 18th birthday.

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. Hear from some of the local residents who have already received their vaccine.

  • Book your coronavirus vaccination
  • Call 119, free of charge (7am to 11pm, seven days a week) to book your appointment.
  • Walk-in - there is a limited walk-in service at the Hammersmith Novotel NHS mass vaccination centre but demand for vaccinations is high and most slots are booked in advance. If no walk-in slots are available or supplies have run out you will be asked to return at a later date. The walk-in service is open from 9am to 7pm every day except Tuesdays. You will need to bring proof of age, your name and address and your NHS number if you have it. Find out about walk-in availability at the large vaccination centres.

Pop-up vaccination clinics and bus

Find out when the vaccination bus or pop-up tent is in your area and just walk in, no booking needed.

Free transport 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. Call Amy Shallon on 07947 188 221 or email ashallon@aukc.org.uk
