A new large vaccination centre has been launched at the Brentford Fountain Leisure Centre on Chiswick High Road.

The site has started offering vaccinations from this Tuesday (23 March).

The centre is run by Chelsea and Westminster Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, as part of a collaborative effort with Hounslow Council.

The large-scale site is located nearby to Gunnersbury Underground Station and Kew Bridge Railway Station, and offers thousands more vaccinations each week. The launch of the centre comes as the NHS focuses on the latest priority groups who are eligible for the vaccine - people aged 50 and over and people with long term health conditions.

You don’t need to wait to be invited if you are eligible for the vaccine, and can go online or phone to book your appointment at the centre. Visit this link anytime or call 119 free (7am to 11pm, seven days a week).

Pippa Nightingale, NW London lead for the vaccination programme said, “We are very pleased to open a new vaccination centre at Brentford Fountain Leisure Centre, which will allow more of our local residents to receive a Covid-19 vaccine when they are eligible to do so. Our vaccination programme across NW London continues to progress at pace, and is helping to protect an ever greater share of people from the harmful effects of coronavirus.”

Cllr Steve Curran, Leader of Hounslow Council, said, “Thanks to hard-working healthcare workers, the vaccination programme has reached borough residents safely and quickly over recent months. High vaccine take-up levels have been achieved and that's a real morale boost for everyone on our way back to normal life. This new centre makes vaccination even more accessible as the eligibility criteria gets broader and we work along the roadmap towards coming out of national lockdown.”

We’ve always done that and won’t be changing, in fact we’d like to do more.

However, the readership that these stories generates is often below that needed to cover the cost of producing them. Our financial resources are limited and the local media environment is intensely competitive so there is a constraint on what we can do.

We are therefore asking our readers to consider offering financial support to these efforts. Any money given will help support community and public interest news and the expansion of our coverage in this area.

If neither of these amounts is suitable for you then contact and we can set up an alternative. All payments are made through a secure web site.

One-off donations are also appreciated. Choose The Amount You Wish To Contribute.
