Where to get your Covid jab this half-term in Greenwich, Lewisham or Bexley – however old you are

Covid-19 test centre in Greenwich
The UK recorded more than 50,000 Covid-19 cases yesterday

Walk-in clinics are available open this weekend and across the half-term holidays to get teenagers and adults vaccinated as Covid-19 cases continue to rise again across the UK.

Young people between 12 and 15 are having jabs arranged through their schools, but some are missing out because of illness or other issues. Others are finding that the national booking service is not offering any local services.

But just as over-16s can use walk-in clinics, special clinics have been arranged across south-east London to make sure younger people can get Pfizer jabs. All services are open to all residents in the NHS South East London area – Bexley, Bromley, Greenwich, Lambeth, Lewisham and Southwark.

Coronavirus jabs for 12-15 year-olds:

  • St Thomas’ Hospital, close to Waterloo station, is offering a daily walk-in service from Monday to Saturday from 9am to 6pm.
  • Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Woolwich is offering jabs to 12 to 15-year-olds every Friday, Saturday and Monday from 8.30am to 4.30pm.
  • Lewisham Hospital also is hosting a walk-up clinic on Fridays, Saturdays and Mondays, this time from 8am to 4.30pm. Next week it is also open on Tuesday 27th, Wednesday 28th and Thursday 29th October from 9am to 4.30pm.
  • In Bexley borough, there is a walk-up clinic at Westwood Masonic Centre in Bellegrove Road, Welling, on Thursday 28th October from 10am to 3pm.
  • Bexley Civic Centre has a walk-up clinic on Friday 29th October from 9am to 2pm.
