Message from The Hive COVID Vaccination Centre

Dear Watch Member,

Message from The Hive COVID Vaccination Centre- Barnet Football Ground.

Staff/volunteers at location ask people not to just turn up without an appointment but to wait until they are invited.

Staff are currently only vaccinating over 80 year olds.

The site is being inundated with people turning up hoping there are spare vaccines left at the end of the day.

The site has strict criteria on who they can offer a vaccine to and at the moment they can only vaccinate over 80 year olds and healthcare professionals, again with an appointment.

 

Please respect these rules.

Rational behind the names.

Tithe Farm Club becomes Covid-19 vaccination centre in Harrow

From Harrow Times Reporter Joseph Reaidi.

A second vaccination centre in Harrow has launched in a push to protect those in high-priority for a Covid-19 vaccination.

The grounds for Rayners Lane FC, the Tithe Farm Club, has begun to operate as a vaccination centre from today (January 8).

Time slots will be four-hour slots and seven days a week.

Car parking at the site is said to be limited, and only the patient (and if necessary one carer) will be allowed into the building.

Vaccinations are issued by appointments only through GPs based on the NHS prioritisation list.

Harrow West MP. Gareth Thomas met with chairman of the club Martin Noblett, in a meeting before the opening.

This marks the second vaccination centre in the area, after The Hive London, home of Barnet Football Club in Cannons Park, launched one earlier in December.

And as part of a bid for more Covid-19 support in the area, St Ann’s Shopping Centre opened up as a Covid-19 testing centre on January 7.

The new vaccination centre is currently looking for volunteers to help administrate the vaccine, anyone who can help out is asked to contact [email protected]

 

Fake Text regarding Covid-19 Vaccines

Dear Watch Member,

Today, we have been alerted to a highly believable scam which starts with a text message and advises the user that they are eligible to apply for the vaccine and to click on the link in the message. The user is then led to a webpage, which looks very convincing and asks them to complete some details, in order for them to be able to apply for the vaccine.

The details asked for are:

  • Name
  • Address
  • Date of birth
  • Proof of address
  • Card payment details

With the recent approval of multiple vaccines in the UK, these types of scam attempts are likely to continue, as fraudsters continue to take advantage of the rollout to primarily vulnerable people.
