16 and 17 year olds can get vaccinated
If you're 16 or 17 years old, you can get the vaccine in one of three ways:
- Visit a walk-in clinic – find your nearest at nhs.uk/service-search/find-a-walk-in-coronavirus-covid-19-vaccination-site/
- Visit or book an appointment on our COVID-19 vaccine bus – find out more at camden.gov.uk/getting-the-vaccine
- Wait to hear from your GP who will get in touch via letter or text message
Eligible 12 to 15 year olds can get vaccinated
If you, or a child in your care, are aged 12 to 15 and live with someone at increased risk of COVID-19 or you are clinically vulnerable, it is also recommended that you get vaccinated. Find out more at northcentrallondonccg.nhs.uk/my-health/covid-19/covid-19-vaccinations-in-north-central-london/vaccinations-for-under-18s/. Please be aware that eligible children under the age of 16 cannot get vaccinated on the COVID-19 vaccine bus.

All COVID-19 vaccination centres are COVID-safe
Wherever you choose to go to be vaccinated, please rest assured that it will be a COVID-safe environment, which means extra precautions are in place to keep you safe - like extra hand-washing, extra cleaning and social distancing in waiting areas.
You can find more information on the NHS website.
I’m not registered with a GP and/or I don’t have an NHS number – can I still get vaccinated?
Yes, everyone is entitled to the free COVID-19 vaccine regardless of whether you’re registered with a GP or not. If you aren’t registered with a GP, please complete the online form at feedback.camdenccg.nhs.uk/north-central-london/ncl-covid-19-vaccination-registration/consultation/intro/
However, we strongly recommend that you do register with a GP because it will help you access a wide range of local medical and preventative care year-round. You don’t need proof of identity, address or immigration status to register. To find out more, visit your local GP surgery or go to nhs.uk/nhs-services/gps/how-to-register-with-a-gp-surgery/.
