Kew next on hyper-local COVID jab tour!
25 March 2022
Residents in Kew will be able to get their COVID-19 vaccination at the next hyper-local pop-up clinic.
Over 120,000 people have now had the first two jabs and their booster vaccinations in the borough. However, there are still some people who are yet to have their first jab. As part of a series of hyper-local clinics, the NHS and Richmond Council has partnered with LiveWell in Kew to host a seven-hour drop in. Making it as easy as possible for those who have not yet been vaccinated, or due their latest jab, to have it in their local community.
The information and vaccination event will be at LiveWell at Kew, Quadrant House, Levett Square, Kew, TW9 4FF on Thursday 7 April from 11am to 6pm. A location just footsteps away from the Kew Retail Park.
Similarly to the last sessions, anyone who is hesitant to have the vaccination because they have questions or concerns can also come along and discuss their worries and facts with our expert NHS team in a private and confidential area. There will be no pressure to have the vaccine on that day, but the facility will be there if people want it.
Anyone aged 12+ who is due their first, second, or booster vaccinations will be able to have their jab throughout the day. No appointments are required, and people can just walk in.
Most children aged 12 to 17 can get a second dose from 12 weeks after they had their first dose. If your child has tested positive for COVID-19 and is not at high risk from COVID-19, they need to wait 12 weeks before they can have a COVID-19 vaccine. This starts from the date of their positive PCR test.
Those aged 18+ can get a second dose from 8 weeks after their first dose. Those aged 16 + can get a booster vaccination from three months after their second dose. If you are aged 18+ and have had COVID-19 recently, you need to wait 28 days before you can have a vaccination.

Those wanting to attend the session in Kew, are reminded that it is within the ULEZ boundary area. If you are wishing to attend, to avoid paying the TfL charge you are advised to either walk, cycle or use public transport. If you are driving to the event, parking is available at the National Archives.
