New walk-in clinics organised as top South West London GP urges people to get second Covid-19 jab without delay

With the number of Covid-19 cases starting to rise, a top south west London GP is urging people to get their second vaccination as soon as possible.

Lead GP for the Covid-19 vaccination programme in south west London Dr Nicola Jones has issued a reminder that a second Covid-19 vaccination is needed to give people maximum, longer-lasting protection and the Wandsworth doctor revealed a series of walk-in clinics to help people get the jab quickly and easily.

Last week it was revealed that millions of people are now fully vaccinated – more than half of people in England. However, infections are rising with the latest test and trace figures showing 45% more infections week-on-week in England.

Dr Jones said: “Getting fully vaccinated is the single most important step we can take to protect ourselves, our families and our communities against Covid-19, including the Delta variant first identified in India.

“The first dose of the Covid-19 vaccine offers a high level of protection, but to get maximum and longer-lasting protection, that second jab is vital, so I would urge everyone who is eligible to get it as soon as possible.

“If you had your first dose of the AstraZeneca vaccine on or before mid-April, we’re now inviting you to one of the walk-in clinics we’ve organised to make things quicker and easier for you – no appointment is needed.

“People who have been contacted to bring forward their second vaccine appointment are also asked to rebook as soon as possible.”

The new south west London walk-in clinics for second doses are being held at:

Crystal Palace FC:

9am to 7pm, Friday 11 to Sunday 13 June 2021
