There are 3 GP vaccine delivery sites in Enfield administering COVID 19 Vaccinations
Patients over 80 have been called first by their own GP surgery and offered an appointment as soon as possible; or you may receive a letter to book via the internet at a Vaccine Centre. As sites are informed of their delivery dates, appointments will be released. You may receive a text message or a phone call to ask if you would like a vaccine at one of these three locations. If you are over 70 and have not received a vaccine yet please contact your GP to obtain an appointment.

Medicus Health Partners is delighted to confirm this week that we have started delivering Covid vaccines to Enfield patients over 65 years of age, clinically extremely vulnerable (shielding) patients and frontline workers to ensure essential medical services are protected through the Pandemic. As more vaccine is released by the manufactures we will start to contact other patient groups. Medicus have created a dedicated environment at Carlton House with separate vaccine pods and screened waiting areas to monitor patients afterwards if required, plus a heated area outside for patients waiting to be seen
How to prepare for your Vaccine
- Ensure you have a booked and confirmed appointment via your GP Practice at one of the locations above. Please note we do not accept walk-in patients at these clinics.
- Please do not attend if you have been diagnosed with COVID 19 or are showing any symptoms.
- Please arrive on time and follow guidance from our staff at all times
- You must wear a mask (unless you are exempt)
- Best to have clothes on that allow easy access to the top of your arm
- To assist with social distancing and safety we can only accommodate one carer or family member to accompany patients who need support in the clinic. Please do not bring children to the clinic.
- If you are taking medication, please bring details with you
- You will need to come back for a second dose of the vaccine after the first dose; this can be up to 12 weeks later.
- Please bring your vaccine card back to the second appointment
- You still need to take precautions, wash hands, use sanitiser and wear a mask until the national guidance changes. You could potentially spread the virus. However, after your first dose and a 10-14 day period afterwards you are more protected from catching the virus.
