The NHS is urging everyone eligible to get vaccinated against Coronavirus, in light of the new Omicron variant which is spreading rapidly in London.

You can book your first, second or booster dose of the vaccine online at on the NHS website now or call 119, free of charge. 

This service is currently open to anyone aged 18 and over or aged 16 and over with a health condition that puts you at high risk from Covid-19. 

The Science Museum in South Kensington is open as a vaccination centre, for walk-ins and pre-booked appointments.  It is open every day up to Thursday 30 December from 8.30am to 7.15pm.   On New Year's Eve it will be open from 8.30am to 1pm.  It will then reopen on Tuesday 4 January, from 8.30am to 7.15pm seven days a week.

You can also book or walk-in to a pharmacy or vaccination centre or visit our vaccine bus, which is at locations around the borough.

Vaccination sites are run by NHS professionals and have extra measures in place to keep you safe during your visit. 


Cllr Cem Kemahli, Lead member for Public Health and Adult Care, said:

“Please get vaccinated. The Omicron variant is highly transmissible and spreading fast through London. I have had my booster at our mobile vaccine bus – it was quick and easy. 


“Boosting your immunity with a booster vaccine, or getting your first or second dose if you haven’t already, will help fight the worst symptoms of Covid. It’s the strongest defence against the virus, to protect ourselves, our families and the NHS this Christmas.”
