Leader of Havering Council urges everyone to get their COVID jab

The leader of Havering Council is urging everyone in the borough aged 18 and over to get their COVID vaccine – and the over 40s to get their second jab.

The doors have now been opened so that any adult, 18 and over, can book to get their first jab. It can easily be booked on the NHS site.

Cllr Damian White, said: “We are on the last leg of this massive exercise in making sure everyone gets their jab. I urge everyone to help us get over the line.

“With the Delta variant growing, one of the best ways of fighting back is booking that appointment. This is why we are also ensuring the Hornchurch centre remains open for at least another month.

“If you are 18 and over book your first jab. If you have had your first one already, please get your second one when asked. If you have friends or family who are still undecided, why not book together to give them reassurance.

“We saw a massive response from people on super Saturday who got their jab, and I thank all those in the NHS and at councils who supported this work. So if you haven’t done so already, please get vaccinated and join those thousands of others who have already done so.”
