Vaccinations are now open to anyone over the age of 18, at Brentford Leisure Centre. The Centre will be open from 9.00 am-7.00 pm Monday-Sunday for people with appointments.

You will need to bring photo ID and your NHS number if you have one. They say queues are likely, so please remember to social distance and observe the Hands, Face, Space guidance.

‘You will only ever be turned away from a queue due to a lack of vaccine supply – this may vary from day to day as we are operating this programme using surplus vaccines.

‘Queueing will not guarantee a vaccine, but teams on the doors will be able to advise at 5.30pm if there is availability that day.

‘If there is availability, please join the queue between 5.30 and 6.30pm. Last admittance will be at 7.20pm each day’.

Hounslow no longer a ‘surge’ area

On 18 June Health Minister Lord Bethell wrote to Hounslow Council’s Leader, Cllr Steve Curran and Hounslow Council’s Chief Executive, Niall Bolger, to inform them that Surge status in Hounslow will come to an early close fromMonday 21 June. The Council considers this to be an acknowledgement of ‘phenomenal efforts made by the borough’s residents’.

The Surge programme, which began on 23 May, has seen tens of thousands of residents getting vaccinated at pop-up clinics across the borough and getting a PCR test, which helps the Council understand spread of the Delta variant in the borough.

Steve Curran, said:

“Around 53,000 vaccinations have been given in the borough over the past four weeks alone. Over 100,000 residents are now fully vaccinated.

“The Government’s decision recognises the incredible efforts everyone has made to ‘Step Up For Hounslow’. With our partners, Hounslow Council mobilised at terrific speed to deliver this excellent work, and it is because of the fantastic, committed response of residents that Government has been able to bring Hounslow‘s surge status to an early close.

“But while the virus continues, there can be no room for complacency. This is the end of our surge status, but it must not be the end of our work together to defeat the virus. That is why I’m appealing to everyone; Don’t Blow It. Keep getting regular LFT rapid tests. Get vaccinated when you can. Follow the rules and remember the importance of hands, face, space.”
