We are delighted to support the COVID-19 vaccination effort by working with the NHS and Islington Council to host a mass vaccine clinic at Emirates Stadium.
Thousands of over-18s will be encouraged to get their first jabs over the four days, from Friday, June 25 to Monday, June 28.
To encourage take up of the vaccine and make it a memorable experience for our supporters, we are also pleased to offer everyone vaccinated over the four days a complimentary behind-the-scenes tour of Emirates Stadium!
The site will offer first doses only of COVID-19 vaccines between 8am and 8pm each day. Anyone over the age of 18 who hasn’t yet been vaccinated is invited to either book a slot in advance or to come on the day to get a walk-in appointment, subject to availability.
Close to 10,000 vaccinations are expected to be given over the four days, with all attending receiving the Pfizer vaccine.
Jonathan O’Sullivan, acting director of public health in Islington, said: “The vaccine is helping to bring us out of the pandemic. But we need more people in Islington and London to get vaccinated. It’s the best way to protect yourself and your loved ones, and having the jab really will help us all get back to enjoying the things we’ve missed doing.
“So, I urge everyone who is eligible and has yet to be vaccinated to book their appointment today. We hope the pop-up at this iconic landmark in the borough will provide some extra incentive. We’d love to get even more people down there than were at Spurs’ stadium last weekend!”
If you are registered with an Islington GP, are eligible and haven’t had your first dose yet, look out for a text message today (Monday, June 21), inviting you to book your appointment. Use the link in the text message to book at this pop-up at Emirates Stadium.
Alternatively, you can book here or by calling the We are Islington helpline on 020 7527 8222. There will also be walk-in appointments during the opening hours.
Entry to the stadium will start at Block S, near The Armoury at Hornsey Road. It is fully wheelchair accessible via a street level lift. There will be a managed queueing system for those with appointments and those turning up on the day, to ensure social distancing is maintained at all times. Vaccinations will be carried out in the stadium’s concourse, delivered by trained vaccinators from the NHS.
Remember to wear your face mask, unless you’re exempt.
