About the new vaccination hub
Enfield residents with a diagnosed Learning Disability can now have a Coronavirus vaccine at the Chase Farm Hospital Vaccination Hub. Anyone providing direct care to the person with a learning disability (paid or unpaid) can also get a vaccination at the same time.
The Hub is committed to providing reasonable adjustments, so as many people can get the vaccine as possible. When you book your appointment, you will be able to say what reasonable adjustments you need to help you have the vaccine. Easy Read information is also available on the council’s website: https://mylife.enfield.gov.uk/enfield-home-page/content/learning-disabilities/coronavirus-vaccine-hub/
How to book
To register for a vaccine, please email LDVaccinehub@enfield.gov.uk
If you do not have access to email you can phone 020 8363 6388, 020 8379 2450 or 07773 009096 between 9am and 4pm Monday to Friday and ask for vaccine bookings. Please email if you can, as phone lines are expected to be busy.
For each person who wants a vaccine, you will need to provide:
- your name and phone number or email address
- date of birth
- address and postcode
- if you have your NHS number this is helpful (but not essential)
- any reasonable adjustments the hub will need to put in place
The hub will then email you a link where you can make an appointment. If you do not have an email address, someone from the hub will call you to make an appointment
If you are worried there may be a medical reason not to have the vaccine (for example; a previous allergic reaction or taking blood thinning medication) you should get advice from your GP.
Also, if they have recently had Coronavirus, Public Health recommend a wait 5 weeks from when symptoms first appear (or from the date of a positive test if they had no symptoms) to have a vaccination.
As with all vaccines, consent is needed. You can find an Easy Read guide about consenting to vaccines to help you make the decision on the London Borough of Enfield MyLife website. https://mylife.enfield.gov.uk/media/35092/covid-19-vaccination-fact-finding-helping-me-make-a-desision.pdf
