NELFT Vaccination Centre features in National Press

With all 16 and 17 year olds in England now being offered the COVID-19 jab, The Sun newspaper visited the pop-up clinic vaccination centre in the Liberty Shopping Centre, Romford last week (18 August 2021) to highlight the work of NELFT’s vaccination teams in vaccinating young people.

A media campaign to encourage young people to get vaccinated has included short films with actors such as Jim Broadbent and Thandi Newton, and football figures Harry Redknapp and Chris Kamara.

The government has also partnered with dating apps and social media platforms as well as companies such as Uber, Bolt and Deliveroo to encourage take-up from the younger generation.
