If you are over 18 you may be able to get a Covid-19 vaccine by going to the Brentford Fountain Leisure centre towards the end of the day.

Unadministered doses are being given out regardless of age after 5.30pm from Monday to Thursday. There is no guarantee there will be spare vaccines and you may need to queue for some time before receiving them. There were reportedly teething problems with the queueing system on the first day of operation this Wednesday (12 May) with people waiting for over three hours before being told there were no doses left. It is hoped that in future staff will be able to advise people when they join the queue if there is a chance of the vaccine being available for them.

You will need to bring photo ID and your NHS number if you have one.

Both Brentford Fountain Leisure Centre is also drop-in vaccination clinics for the eligible age categories (currently 38+) operating 9am-7pm from Monday to Thursday.

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 is currently giving out thousands of vaccinations each week.
