Here's the latest information from the local NHS:

Vaccination Update

Over 43,000 people have received their first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine in Redbridge. This figure includes health and social care staff, residents over the age of 70 and those who are clinically extremely vulnerable. We are among the highest in North East London with regards to the proportion of staff and residents vaccinated. This is a testament to your hard work in encouraging your communities to take up the vaccine.

Updated Vaccinations Guidance

Please note that until now, the NHS has asked people to wait until they are contacted to help ensure those most vulnerable are protected first but it has been announced that people aged 70 and over who have not yet been vaccinated against COVID-19 can now contact the NHS to arrange a jab.

Over 70s can now book their COVID-19 vaccination appointment without needing an invitation letter here, or by calling 119, free of charge.

More information can be found here, and see also the attached documents.
