Queues form in Woolwich as walk-in vaccinations begin

Queues could be seen snaking across General Gordon Square yesterday as walk-in jabs begun at the Late Night Pharmacy in Woolwich’s Equitable House.

Normal hours a job without prior booking will be 8am to 2pm until 25th July.

Yesterday saw an influx as times were extended until 6pm – though this is NOT happening today and in coming days and weeks as things stand.

According to those waiting, the queue moved quickly and efficiently.

Locations across south east London

A number of locations are offering walk-in vaccinations today. Click here to view locations across a number of south east London boroughs.

Do check the details of locations – some are over 40s such as First Care Pharmacy in Thamesmead, while others are open to all such as Plumstead Health Centre.

No booking is needed nor ID – it’s simply turn up and be seen.

However some boroughs have far more choice than others. Bexley borough however is far more restrictive with just one location (Erith Health Centre) – with just three hours a week (Friday 1:30pm to 4:30pm) and you must be registered at a GP in the north of the borough.

Lewisham borough has no details at all.

Take up

Nationwide data shows that 77 per cent of people have now had their first jabs, and 53.6 per cent having the follow-up.

However in Greenwich borough numbers lag some way short:
