Next week will see the launch of Haringey’s very own vaccine bus – bringing a hyper-local Covid-19 vaccine service to the borough.

The bus will visit areas where people may find it harder to access large-scale vaccination centres or other vaccine clinics and will be fully accessible.

It is intended that the bus will support the vaccine rollout by reaching people eligible for a vaccine who have not yet come forward for the jab.

The vaccine bus will begin its tour at the College of Haringey, Enfield and North East London campus next week.

Dr Will Maimaris, Director of Public Health for Haringey said: “Uptake in some parts of Haringey is less than what is required to offer maximum protection from COVID-19 to all our communities.

“We know that certain communities may need extra reassurance or assistance to access vaccination, so we are introducing the vaccine bus to bridge that gap.”

The bus will initially operate two days each week for scheduled vaccine clinics.

Residents should continue to book their Covid-19 jab at a vaccine centre or GP surgery if they can get there.
