150,000 people vaccinated with first dose in Tower Hamlets

Posted on: 21 June 2021


150,000 residents in Tower Hamlets have now received the first dose of COVID-19 vaccine, with over 73,000 residents fully vaccinated with two doses. While the numbers mark a huge achievement for the GP Care Group, Tower Hamlets Council, and healthcare professionals, there are still more eligible residents yet to take up the vaccine.

We want to say a huge thank you to residents, our healthcare professionals, volunteers, and everyone working behind the scenes, who have taken the vaccine so far and vaccinated residents in the borough! Your incredible efforts towards helping to keep Tower Hamlets safe are appreciated. 

In Tower Hamlets, residents can book their vaccine at a number of local clinics including The Art Pavilion in Mile End, Cable Street GP Surgery and community pharmacies, Lincoln pharmacy and Lansbury pharmacy. The council also runs pop-up clinics at the East London Mosque, Granby Hall, and other community spaces.

Anyone eligible can book their appointment at mass vaccination clinics. The closest to Tower Hamlets is Westfield Vaccination Centre (Olympic Park East). 

Please continue to encourage take-up of the COVID vaccines to eligible cohorts to reduce risk of the virus spreading.
