    Infection rates are rising in Lambeth and across London. 

    Check this NHS information on where and when you can get tested and jabbed locally, including new walk-in vaccination clinics that are open from 8am to 7pm every and will not ask for immigration status, proof of address, ID or NHS number.

    There are also details support for those who have to self-isolate.

    As well as the new walk-in vaccination clinics opening every day, existing sites are opening for longer and on more days.

    Vaccination centres at Guy’s and St Thomas’ Hospitals are open 8am to 7pm every day and offer the Pfizer vaccine.

    Montgomery Hall, 58 Kennington Oval SE11 5SW, is also now open seven days a week.

    Walk-in sessions in local pharmacies have opening and closing times ranging from 8am to midnight.

    You do not need proof of address, NHS number or immigration status to come to one of these clinics.

    Details of all walk-in vaccination clinics are below and also on the local NHS website.

    Get tested

    If you meet people outside your household, the NHS urges you to protect those around you and take a rapid test twice a week.

    One in three people with Covid have no or very mild symptoms. Regular testing is the best way to make sure you are not accidentally infecting others.

    You can order your free test kits online, or visit a local pharmacy or a mobile testing unit. Details here

    Self isolating if you have symptoms or test positive

    If you have Covid symptoms or have tested positive, Lambeth council may be able to help you.

    It offers rapid financial, practical and emotional support to help you self-isolate for 10 days and an option to stay in a hotel to protect the people you live with.

    Call 0800 054 1215 to get support and find out more.

    Getting vaccinated

    If you have questions about the vaccination, you can speak to an NHS Covid wellbeing ambassador.

    The NHS Vaccine Facts website answers common questions about the COVID vaccine, and what happened when local people had the jab.

    Visit a walk-in clinic or the NHS health and wellbeing bus which will be stationed at different places across the borough throughout the summer.

    It has information about health services and support in the area.

    You can also speak to Covid wellbeing ambassadors, pick up and drop off testing kits, get tested and receive a vaccination.

    Details of walk-in vaccination clinics are below and on the local NHS website.

    New dates and venues are added all the time. You do not need an appointment to visit the bus or vaccination walk-in clinics, but if you want to book ahead …

    Book online or by phone

    Book your appointment online or by calling 119 free of charge.

    New appointments are added regularly, and you will be able to choose from locations across the area, including hospitals, local pharmacies and GP surgeries.

    Book through your GP

    If you are registered with a GP, you should get or have got a text message, email or letter when it is your turn to be vaccinated. You can then book an appointment at a clinic close to you.

    If you are eligible for a vaccination but have not heard from your GP get in touch with them.

    When should you get your second dose?

    Second doses of the Covid-19 vaccine have been brought forward for people over the age of 40 from 12 weeks to eight weeks.

    This change has been made to ensure people have the strongest possible protection against the virus as early as possible.

    The NHS is sending text messages to people who are already booked in for their second dose inviting them to rebook their appointment.

    You can also rearrange your appointment at nhs.uk/covid-vaccination or by calling 119 free of charge
