Variants of concern

Public Health England has found COVID 19 variants of concern in some parts of Brent. To see if it has spread in the community and to help contain the virus, everyone aged 16 and over who lives or works in the affected areas is being asked to get tested.

The affected areas are:

  • St Raphaels
  • Stonebridge
  • Wembley North 
  • Wembley West
  • Alperton West
  • Tokyngton
  • Kensal Green

If you live or work in one of these areas, please do get tested by calling 020 8937 4440 or booking online at www.gov.uk/coronavirus

The best way to protect yourself, your friends and family is to get vaccinated. It's as easy as 1,2,3.

  1. The Vaccine Bus will be out and about in the borough five days a week 
  2. Pop-up clinics and GP sites are also available across the borough
  3. Or make use of the walk-in service at the mass vaccination site (Olympic Office Centre, 8 Fulton Rd, Wembley, HA9 0NU) open every day between 9am and 7pm

You can now book your NHS COVID-19 vaccination if you are any of the following

  • Aged 25 and over
  • At high risk from coronavirus (clinically extremely vulnerable)
  • Live or work in a care home
  • Are a Health or social care worker
  • Have a condition such as Asthma that puts you at higher risk (clinically vulnerable - people who are offered a free NHS flu jab each winter)
  • Have a learning disability
  • Are the main carer for someone at high risk from coronavirus.
