Get your first COVID-19 vaccination at a walk-in clinic on Saturday
If you’re aged 40 or over and you’ve not had your first vaccination, come to Guy’s Hospital on Saturday 12 June from 8am to 6pm to get an AstraZeneca vaccine. No need to book.
Don’t miss your second COVID-19 vaccine dose
The first dose of the vaccine should give you good protection from COVID-19 from 3 or 4 weeks after you’ve had it. But you need both doses of the vaccine to give you longer lasting protection.
If you book online, you’ll need to book appointments for both doses. If you have your first dose through your GP surgery, you’ll be contacted when it’s time to book your second dose.
