COVID-19 cases are rising across Barnet and getting vaccinated is still the best way to keep yourself and your community safe.

Barnet Council and the NCL CCG invite everyone aged 18 and over to get their COVID-19 vaccine on a special vaccination bus which will make stops in Barnet throughout the summer.

A free shuttle bus is also operating between Oaklodge Medical Centre in Edgware and StoneX Stadium, taking people on a round trip to get their jab.

Anyone aged 18 or over can get the Pfizer vaccine by simply walking up to the bus and getting their jab.  You do not need an appointment, or an NHS number and second doses are also available if people have had their first jab at least 8 weeks earlier.

Vaccinators will be on board to answer any questions about the COVID-19 vaccine.

People are encouraged to bring their relatives and friends with them – the more people that get vaccinated, the safer our community can be.

Dr Tamara Djuretic, Barnet's Director for Public Health, said: "With the virus spreading in the local community fast just as the Government is removing all COVID-19 restrictions, it is more important than ever that we all get vaccinated as soon as possible. Vaccines are safe and effective and provide the best possible protection against getting seriously ill from the virus.

"Our vaccine bus makes it quick and easy to get your first or second Pfizer jab (as long as its after 8 weeks). Our trained vaccinators can also answer any questions you might have and reassure you about the vaccine’s safety. You can also use our new free shuttlebus to get to StoneX Stadium for a walk in vaccine."
