East London Vaccination Centre

East London Vaccination Centre

Westfield Shopping Centre
The East London Vaccination Centre is to relocate to Mile End Hospital.  From 3 October 2022, you will be able to have your COVID vaccination at Beaumont House, Mile End Hospital.  In the meantime, you can book a COVID vaccine or seasonal booster at another site via the National Vaccine Booking website here >>

Everyone aged 5 and over can get a 1st and 2nd dose of the COVID-19 vaccine.

People aged 16 and over, and some children aged 12 to 15, can also get a booster dose.

People aged 5 and over who had a severely weakened immune system when they had their first 2 doses, will be offered a 3rd dose before any booster doses.

Some people, including those aged 50 years or over, those at higher risk or who are pregnant, and frontline health and social care workers, will be offered a seasonal booster (autumn booster).       

 

We can also off the Polio booster at the East London Vaccination Centre.

The London Polio Booster campaign is for all children who live in London aged 1 to 9 years old. However, please note that we are only able to offer the booster to children aged 6 to 9 years old (up to the day before their 10th birthday). If your child is under 6 years old, please contact your GP surgery to arrange their polio booster instead.

Your child should have already received all of their polio vaccinations as per the NHS Childhood Immunisations Programme. The last dose of a polio containing vaccine (The pre-school booster, usually given at around 3 years and 4 months old) needs to have given at least 12 months ago.

If you don’t think your child is otherwise up to date with their vaccines, please contact your GP surgery to arrange catch up vaccinations (and this will also cover the polio booster if required).

Please bring your child’s red book to the appointment, if you have it.

Seasonal Booster Vaccination for 50+ Age Group

We are delighted to be offering a seasonal booster to people over 50 and anyone who is immunosupressed. Those eligible will be contacted by their GP or by the NHS to book an appointment or walk-in to a vaccination centre.

You do not need an appointment. You can just walk in!

If you can ...

  • Please bring your NHS number
  • We want everyone to be safe during their visit and not be in close contact with others so maintain a 2m space from others in the queue
  • You cannot bring any family members into the centre with you unless you need a carer
  • Others will be asked to wait outside
  • We have a separate entrance and exit, and a one-way system to maintain distance

When you arrive, you will be met by our front of house staff.

  • They will ensure that you are wearing a face covering and will provide you with a mask if you are not
  • We will ask you to sanitise your hands using the foot-controlled dispenser by the entrance.
  • We will also take your temperature

We will take you to one of our vaccination pods. You will be given a leaflet about the vaccination and asked to read it.

  • The vaccinator will ask you some of the same questions you have been asked - just to be sure you are safe and well to have the vaccine
  • Talk with your vaccinator about which arm you would prefer to have the vaccination in. If you are especially worried about having injections, tell your vaccinator so they can look after you carefully.
  • Our vaccinators are very gentle and skilled - you really won't feel much
  • The vaccinator will check that you feel ok.
  • You are then free to go

Universal Disability SignOn arrival, please let a member of staff know that you may need additional support during your visit so that we can ensure that we communicate with you clearly and that you know what the next steps are to receive your vaccine.

If you have hearing issues, it can be difficult to communicate when staff are wearing masks. Let us know so that we can take steps to communicate well with you.

The vaccination centre is all on one level with smooth surfaces. Some of our vaccination pods are slightly larger so we can accommodate wheelchairs and walking aids.

Please note

  • To ensure the safety of all patients, at peak times and or when we reach clinical capacity (and in line with current COVID-19 guidance), the centre may need to temporarily pause walk-in appointments without prior notice.

  • We are unable to administer second dose vaccines until 8 weeks after your first dose.
