Step Up for Hounslow! Surge testing and increased vaccinations in Hounslow

Work Hounslow.jpg

As you will be aware, Public Health England has found clusters of a COVID-19 variant of concern in your area and mass testing is underway.

We need every member of the community to come forward for PCR testing in order to give us the best chance of suppressing this outbreak. Please help us by encouraging your members to get a test as soon as possible. Details of testing centres are available at

Here is a pack which explains how we are managing the virus and what communities can do to help us. I hope it will answer the majority of your questions.


Testing will, in combination with measures such as hands-face-space and following national guidance, help to suppress and control the spread of the virus, while enabling a better understanding of the new variant. 

32 or older? If you're eligible, find out how to get your vaccine

If you are aged 32 or over, are clinically vulnerable, a frontline worker or a carer, you can now book your COVID-19 vaccination through the NHS website even if you haven’t yet received a letter. Appointments are available at sites across the borough and also Ealing, Wembley and Hammersmith.

Please note Brentford Fountain Leisure Centre is now only a drop-in vaccination clinic for everyone aged 18+ from 5:30pm, Monday-Thursday only on a first-come, first-served basis. Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee you a vaccine if you drop in, as the programme operates from the vaccine surplus on any given day.

We are aware of other scam messages circulating – please ignore them. The NHS will never ask you for money or your bank details for your vaccination – it is free. 

You can book an appointment now if:

  • you are aged 32 or over
  • you are at high risk from coronavirus (clinically extremely vulnerable)
  • you are an eligible frontline health or social care worker
  • you have a condition that puts you at higher risk (clinically vulnerable)
  • you have a learning disability
  • you are a main carer for someone at high risk from coronavirus

You can book appointments at a larger vaccination centres or a pharmacy that provides COVID-19 vaccinations.

Please make sure you plan your journey responsibly to allow for as much social distancing as possible.
