Streatham Covid vaccination Pop Up Clinic - Saturday 10th April 2021 11am to 3pm

Who is the clinic for?

This clinic is a 'one-off' opportunity for people invited to vaccination in 'Phase 1' of the NHS Covid-19 vaccination programme. That is people aged 50 and above. People with underlying health conditions(see below for details) and front line health and social care staff including carers who give care to someone who is very dependent on them. THIS IS FOR FIRST DOSE ONLY. IF YOU HAVE ALREADY HAD ONE VACCINATION you should wait until 11 weeks after the first dose and generally the second dose will be given at the same place the first dose was given. 

Do I need an appointment?

You don't need an appointment - this is a drop in clinic

Where will the clinic be run?

This will be at Streatham Library. The entrance is from Pinfold Road, across the High Road from Iceland. 

What vaccine will be available?

As is currently the case nationally the vaccine available is the Astra Zeneca product. This is safe, more than 18 million doses having been given in the UK and effective at protecting against serious and against mild Covid infection. 

What if I am taking some medication that means I shouldn't have the vaccine?

There are generally no medications that would prevent you being vaccinated. We will check with you about these things when you attend. 

What if I have a health condition that might mean I have a problem with the vaccine. 

In general the only absolute reason not to have the vaccine is a previous severe allergy to the vaccine. When you attend we will ask you some questions to check the vaccine is safe and appropriate for you. There are knowledgeable clinical staff on hand who can answer your questions. 

Are there some reasons not to be vaccinated?

If you have symptoms of Covid infection (fever, cough, loss of taste or smell) currently or had a positive covid test in the last few weeks then you should not attend. If you have had another vaccination in the last 7 days you should not attend. Women who are currently pregnant need to have a considered discussion with a doctor to review the pro's and cons. There is no need to avoid pregnancy in the weeks after vaccination.
