Highgate's Well Pharmacy in Junction Road is to offer Covid-19 booster vaccines.

Government guidelines state that booster jabs will initially be offered to people aged 50 and over, health and social care workers and the most vulnerable.

The boosters will be offered around six months after the second Covid jab was given.

Well Pharmacy said people will also be offered an NHS flu jab at their booster vaccine appointment.

Pharmacy superintendent Ifti Khan assured customers that it was safe to have both jabs at the same time.

Ifti said: "Every vaccination is a life protected or saved. 

"Having both vaccinations will give you and your loved ones the best protection this winter from getting seriously ill from Covid or flu."
