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:

Vaccinations for 12 to 15 year-olds 

If you, or a child in your care, is aged 12 to 15 and is clinically vulnerable or lives with someone at increased risk of COVID-19 it is also recommended that they get two doses of the vaccine. 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 12 to 15 year-olds will be offered a first dose of the COVID-19 (Pfizer) vaccine soon. The NHS will deliver vaccinations to most children at school. Children and their families will be contacted by their school to let them know when they can get vaccinated. For more information visit nhs.uk/coronavirus

If you are aged 18 and over and haven't had your first dose or you are due your second dose there are several ways to book your free appointment in Camden:

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/.
