Teddington Health and Social Care Centre

We are currently running booked Covid-19 vaccinations at THSCC. This may mean some disruption to existing clinics. We are very sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.

Vaccinations must be booked via the National Covid Vaccination Service.

What to expect at your vaccine appointment

  1. Please ensure you arrive at the appointment time you are given. (If it's hot, make sure you eat and drink before you come to your appointment.)
  2. On arrival at THSCC, you will be asked to confirm that you have no symptoms of coronavirus
  3. You will need to put on a fluid resistant face mask (we’ll provide this) and sanitise your hands.
  4. You’ll be checked-in by a member of staff and asked to confirm your name and date of birth
  5. When it’s your turn to receive the vaccine, you will be directed to one of our clinic rooms. You’ll be asked for some basic health information, which includes questions about any allergies you may have.
  6. You’ll be asked to give your consent, confirming you’re having the vaccine.
  7. You’ll then be given the vaccination. This is given via a needle into your non-dominant arm/shoulder and will feel no more than a quick sharp scratch (similar to a flu jab).
  8. After you’ve been vaccinated, you’ll be given your vaccine record card and leaflets about aftercare.

You will be asked to wait for 15 minutes before you leave THSCC so we can be sure you’re OK before you travel. It’s recommended that you avoid driving for at least 15 minutes after the vaccination.

After your appointment

The vaccine has been shown to reduce the chance of you suffering from severe symptoms of Covid-19.

It may take a week or two for your body to build up some protection from the first dose of vaccine. Like all medicines, no vaccine is completely effective, so you should continue to take recommended precautions to avoid infection. Some people may still get Covid-19 despite having a vaccination, but this should be less severe.

The vaccine cannot give you the Covid-19 infection, and a full course will reduce your chance of becoming seriously ill. We don’t yet know whether it will stop you from catching and passing on the virus, but we do expect it to reduce this risk.

To protect yourself and your family, friends and colleagues you still need to:

  • practice social distancing
  • wear a face mask
  • wash your hands carefully and frequently
  • follow the current guidance
