Vaccinators in Haringey are urging local people to take up invites to get a Covid-19 jab. 

The clinical lead at a vaccine centre in Bounds Green - which serves the whole of the borough - said it was vital that people didn't hesitate and went to get their jabs. 

Dr Marlene Neary, who has been running the centre at the Bounds Green GP practice in Gordon Road, told this newspaper: "It so important that when someone is called to have their vaccine that they book. 

"We are finding a lot of people aren't booking for their second one - that's where perhaps we are struggling a little bit.

Dr Neary said at the practice they were running walk-in vaccine clinics for those who had been told to book an AstraZeneca vaccine.
