A vaccination clinic for Hackney’s Turkish, Kurdish and Turkish Cypriot communities is being organised by local GPs to help encourage uptake of the COVID-19 vaccine.
Hackney Council and the NHS, including local doctors want to make sure all communities in Hackney can take up the offer of the free COVID-19 vaccine, which is the best way to be protected from the deadly virus and key to ending the current lockdown.
The vaccine clinic is for 1st dose of vaccinations and will take place on Sunday, 9 May at the John Scott Vaccination Clinic on Green Lanes, from 9.30am-2.30pm.
There is no need to book. If a person is eligible for the vaccine, they can simply turn up to the clinic during opening hours and get vaccinated.
To be eligible for the vaccine a person must be a resident of Hackney or the City of London and be either:
- Aged 40 or over
- A carer
- A health and social care worker
Local medical professionals will be on hand to answer any questions you may have about the vaccine, with local community groups providing information in community languages, including Turkish.
