A series of pop-up COVID-19 vaccination clinics will be taking place across Haringey over the upcoming weeks as part of ongoing efforts to increase take-up of the vaccine.
The following clinics are confirmed to take place:

The clinics, set up by the local NHS in partnership with community organisations, is open to people aged 50 and over and those with an underlying health condition such as diabetes, who have not had their first vaccine.
It is a walk-in service, so people can drop in on the day without pre-booking. You will need to bring a form of identification so that you can be logged on the system and be invited for your second vaccination at a later date.
Everyone is entitled to primary care regardless of their immigration status in the country. Residents over 50 years of age who are not registered with a GP or have previously declined the vaccine are also welcome to attend the clinics. You can download here a flyer with more information.
You will need to wear a mask and adhere to social distancing rules. Please do not attend if you are feeling unwell.

This is an important health message – please do not ignore
Public Health England has discovered that one household in the Tottenham Hale area has the South African variant of the Covid-19 virus.
This variant is more easily passed from person to person.
To see if it has spread in the community and to help contain the virus, all local people aged 16 and over are being asked to get tested.
We will soon be going door to door offering home testing kits which we will collect.
A Mobile Testing Unit for people who do not have symptoms will also be in the local area.
You can find more details of what we are doing by going to haringey.gov.uk/covidvariants.
Help protect your friends, family and loved ones, and your community by getting tested.
Our team will be going door to door offering free test kits during the next week.
The team will:
• be wearing ‘Haringey’ printed high visibility vests
• be wearing the appropriate PPE
• maintain a safe distance
• help you as much as possible in explaining your test and registering it
