Three COVID-19 and flu vaccine pop-ups coming up in January

11 January 2023

Residents in and around Hampton and Richmond will be able to access a COVID-19 or flu jab at two upcoming pop-up clinics on Saturday 28 January, being held at both the Tangley Park Children’s Centre and Richmond and Hillcroft Adult Community College.

Cold weather can make some health problems worse and even lead to serious complications, especially if you are 65 or older, or if you have a long-term health condition. Having a flu and/or COVID-19 jab can help make sure you and those you care for are well protected during the winter months.

The pop-up vaccine clinics on Saturday 28 January will take place at the following times and locations:

  • Tangley Park Children's Centre, 1 Bramble Lane, Hampton, TW12 3XB, from 10.30am to 3.30pm. Located a short bus journey from Hampton train station.
  • Winter Health Fair Richmond and Hillcroft Adult Community College, Parkshot, Richmond, TW9 2RE, from 11am to 5pm, across the street from Richmond Station.

Anyone aged 12+ who is due their first, second, or booster vaccinations will be able to have their COVID-19 jab. The seasonal (winter) booster is only available for those aged 50+ or those considered clinically vulnerable. Flu jabs are available for those aged 50+ or anyone typically eligible for a free flu jab.

Doses of the COVID-19 jab for children aged 5-11 will be available at the Tangley Park Children's Centre clinic only.

More information on the eligibility for COVID-19 and flu jabs can be found on the NHS website. All other services are open for all ages.

No appointments are required, and people can just walk in. If you have recently tested positive for COVID-19, you need to wait before getting any dose of the vaccine and the number of weeks depends on how old you are. Find out more about who is eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine.

If anyone is hesitant about the vaccine or has any questions, the pop-up clinics are an opportunity to speak to experts from the NHS in a private and confidential environment.
