Barts Health opens a large-scale Covid-19 vaccination centre in Newham

We’re stepping up our contribution to the country’s Covid-19 vaccination programme by opening a large-scale vaccination centre for members of the public in the ExCeL conference centre at Newham.

The NHS Covid-19 Vaccination Centre, Newham, which goes live this week, will serve the whole of London.

The NHS will invite people to have a vaccine via a letter, which will provide information on how to book an appointment through a national booking system.

Anyone wishing to join the national effort can apply for a number of clinical and non-clinical opportunities at the centre, including vaccinator, clinical supervisor and front of house jobs.

These roles are available on a flexible basis.

Whatever your role, you will receive appropriate training and a comprehensive induction, and be provided with the PPE you need to safely do your job.NHS Covid-19 Vaccination Centre

Deputy group director of people Delvir Mehet said: “This is a fantastic opportunity to join the large-scale vaccination programme, protect the people of London and the south east and help return our lives back to normal.

“There are a number of newly-created roles available for both clinical and administrative staff, and I would encourage everyone who can to put their name forward.

“We look forward to welcoming you as part of the team.”

    I am messaging on behalf of my mum Mary Lawrenson who had the covid vaccination on Wednesday 20th Jan at the Excel Centre, she wanted to say thank you to all of the staff at the centre for all of the work they are doing. Everyone involved from the marshalls telling her where to go to the staff doing the vaccinations where excellent. Thank you to all of them for the fantastic job they are doing.
    If I have sent to the wrong place please could you let me know where I can send her thanks onto the correct people as I have found where you can make complaints on the website but not where I can send on her thanks.

    The excel has given me your email address as I had my 1st COVID vaccination last Monday 18th January. It has not been registered on the NHS website and unable to book second vaccination. My wife has been able to book for the 6th April. My telephone number is 07947465027.

    I have received a text message, ostensibly from you, offering me a walk in appointment at the ExCel centre today or tomorrow. Please would you let me know if that was a bona fide message.
    Many thanks

    I just had a weird text saying I should ignore an earlier text asking me to attend here. I never had the first text and now I’m confused. And of course no contact details to query any of this.

    Hi, I just received a text message identifying themselves as Barts Health offering me a walk in appointment tomorrow for a first dose of Covid vaccine at the Excel. I was told that I have to show the text and an ID at arrival. And 07783 813614 (kept going into voicemail) if I need to reschedule. Please confirm if this is a genuine invitation?

    I have had a text today (31st March) inviting me for my vaccine on 1st April at the Excel but I would like to alter it to somewhere more local for me. I've tried to call the contact number on the text but am unable to get through - is there any other number to call to rebook?

    Hi, I've just received a message offering me a walk in appointment at EXCEL centre is this a genuine message?
    07526971977 (this was the number to ring to change dates)
    Do let me know.

    Like many of the comments on this page I received a text message today from ‘MESSAGE’ inviting me for a walk-in vaccine at your Newham ExCeL centre this weekend and told to bring my ID. I’m not keen to call the mobile number in the message in case it is indeed a scam. As there are no replies posted on this webpage, it’s hard to know the other enquiries like mine are genuine or not.
    As I am a healthy woman in my 30’s and able to self-isolate, I would rather a more vulnerable person receive the vaccine or their second dose before me. Please let me know if the invitation is legitimate and if you can offer my dose to someone else more in need. Many thanks.
