Our pop-up Covid vaccination clinic at Besson Street Community Garden on May 21 was, by all accounts, an astounding success.

New Cross Gate Trust worked in league with the NHS, local doctors, Lewisham Homes and Lewisham Public Health to run the clinic.

More than 150 local people – mainly aged between 40 and 80 years old – were vaccinated.

Alongside the vaccination, people got the chance to get blood pressure, height and weight and diabetes checks. With plenty of tea, coffee, cake and a small plant to take away to all taking part.

We are offering the same benefits when you get your follow up jab or your first time jab on Friday 23 or Saturday 24 July 11am-5pm.

The vaccination will be free and you do not need to be registered at a GP to qualify. There’s no need to tell us you’re coming but if you’d prefer to book in advance please call Jill on 07904 944 771.

The jab administered will be the AstraZeneca vaccine. Find out more about the Covid-19 vaccine in our FAQ or visit the NHS website.

Be safe, get the jab!
