Flu and COVID-19 vaccinations

COVID-19 autumn booster vaccinations and seasonal flu vaccinations are now available for eligible people at our vaccination centre at Guy’s Hospital.

We offer vaccinations in line with the Government’s guidelines.

Those who are at greatest risk will be offered their vaccination first and the NHS will let you know when it is your turn.

COVID-19 vaccinations will also be available for eligible people who have not completed their original course.

How to book

Book your COVID-19 vaccination appointment using the national booking system on the NHS website. Flu appointments are not yet available to book online but you will be offered the flu vaccine when you come to our vaccination centre.

We also offer some walk-in appointments, although we recommend you book to avoid disappointment. Please check the national find a walk in site website for opening times.

If we send you an invitation to come for your vaccine you do not need to reply if you want to be vaccinated elsewhere.

Changing or cancelling your appointment

Please log in to the national booking system to make the changes you need.

Vaccinations for children and young people

To find out more about COVID-19 vaccinations for children and young people, please visit Evelina London website.

Flu vaccinations for children and young people are available through their GP, school or community clinic. Please visit the NHS website to find out more.

You cannot usually choose which vaccine you have. When you book, you'll only be offered appointments for vaccines that are suitable for you.

Most people can have any of the COVID-19 vaccines, but some people are only offered certain vaccines based on medical suitability.

When you come for your appointment, we will ask you questions about your relevant medical history. This will tell us whether you are medically suitable for the vaccine you have been booked for. If because of your medical history you are not suitable for that vaccine, we will offer you an alternative vaccine. 

Please check the NHS website for the latest guidance.

The COVID-19 vaccines approved for use in the UK have met strict standards of safety, quality and effectiveness.
