Croydon Covid-19 Oxford-AZ vaccine walk-in sessions

Please see below a message from Dr Agnelo Fernandes and Matthew Kershaw

The coronavirus vaccine is safe and effective and remains our best protection against Covid-19 and the surest route to a return to normal life.   Millions of people have now received a Covid-19 vaccine and across Croydon we have now delivered over 320,000 doses of the vaccine.

Covid-19 infections rates are currently rising across England with the latest test-and-trace figures showing 45% more infections week-on-week.  The first dose of the vaccine offers a high level of protection, but to get maximum and longer-lasting protection, everyone will need to get a second dose. Across South West London, we are working to tackle the spread of Covid-19 by creating additional opportunities for people to vaccinate, including walk-in clinics.

Over the next week we will be offering the following walk-in clinics in Croydon for the Oxford-AZ vaccine:

  • Selhurst Park, Crystal Palace, SE25 6PU:
    • 9am to 7pm, Friday 11 to Sunday 13 June 2021
  • Centrale Shopping Centre, CR0 1TY:
    • 9am to 7pm, Monday 14 to Sunday 20 June 2021

We will be advertising these walk-in clinics for those who received their first dose of Oxford-AZ before mid-April but have not yet had their second.  We will also be encouraging anyone who is eligible for a first dose to come forward. Anyone under 40 can also come and speak to a clinician about their vaccination options.

These walk-in clinics complement the work we continue to deliver across the borough to vaccinate local people including our GP led vaccination centres, GP and nurse led pop-up clinics across the borough and outreach and engagement work for priority groups locally. As you know, you can read more about the programme on our website at www.swlondonccg.nhs.uk/covid

All those eligible can book a vaccination appointment to suit them online at www.nhs.uk/covid-vaccination 

We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for everything you are doing to help with the Covid-19 vaccination programme.

Best wishes,

Dr Agnelo Fernandes

Bogus Surveyor – Warning

Please be aware, if you are having building work done, resident in Palace View this morning had smartly dressed man knock pretending to be his surveyor, luckily he realised he was not genuine. This appears to be common at the moment, stealing valuables once inside.
