We are fast approaching the first anniversary of the launch of the Covid-19 vaccination programme on December 8 and many residents have already received their first, second and a third or booster dose of the vaccine.

As per last week, booster vaccinations remain a key focus. Booster doses will now show on the NHS app, and online bookings for booster doses can be made by everyone over 40’s and 16 to 17 years old who are now eligible. Young people aged 12-17 who have previously tested positive for Covid-19 and who are not in a high risk group should wait 12 weeks after their positive test before getting their first (or second) vaccine dose. Together with local NHS partners, we are continuing to encourage as many of those as possible who are eligible to come forward and get their Covid-19 booster and flu vaccine. Up to 19 November, over 226,000 booster vaccines and over 271,000 flu vaccines have been given to residents across North Central London.

As more sites switch over to delivering the Moderna, we know that many people are less familiar with the Moderna vaccine. The London regional communications team have prepared a toolkit to provide clinicians, operational teams and communications colleagues with messaging that can be used to reassure the public that the Moderna vaccine is safe, effective and appropriate.
