Haringey and Islington Community Vaccination service
Our roving service was set up in December 2020 in response to the rapid COVID vaccination rollout. We aim to provide COVID and seasonal influenza (flu) vaccinations for care home residents and housebound patients who are unable to attend a local vaccination service.
Our administration team are in regular contact with all local care homes, and can be reached via telephone or email with queries or to book a visit. For housebound patients, we require a GP referral to our dedicated email address to confirm a patientís housebound designation.
Telephone: 07557 795 950
Frequently Asked Questions
A patient is deemed to be housebound when they are unable to leave their home environment through physical and/or psychological illness. An individual will not be eligible for a home visit if they are able to leave their home environment on their own or with minimal assistance to visit public or social recreational public services (including shopping).
If we havenít visited you before, we need a referral from your GP. You can ask your GP to contact us, or you can ask us to speak to your GP on your behalf by calling us on 07557 795 950 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our service visits patients between 10am and 4pm, Monday to Friday.
Our vaccinators are made up of teams of either one or two people. This will be a registered healthcare professional, and someone to assist them in setting up and carrying out the vaccination. All our staff carry ID badges, so please ask to check them when they arrive.
