Hounslow Council’s Health Outreach Team (HOT) bus will be travelling across the borough throughout December to administer flu and COVID-19 vaccines to all eligible residents. 

The bus will be set up in various locations across Hounslow from 6-20 December. Members of the public do not have to make an appointment to get their winter vaccines, they can simply turn up on the day and get vaccinated. 

For a full list of dates and locations, people can save and refer to the attached graphic. 

A team of health professionals travelling with the bus can also answer people’s questions about staying well more generally this winter. 

This roving vaccination programme is just one of the ways Hounslow Council is supporting people to get their free vaccinations this year. 

Flu and COVID-19 vaccinations are available at venues across Hounslow, including GP surgeries, pharmacies and health centres.  

For information on how to book vaccine appointments in these locations, people can refer to the Council’s Get Winter Ready pages on the website

Groups that are eligible for both the flu and Covid-19 vaccines include people aged 65 and over, people with lower immunity, and people who live with them. Anyone who is pregnant is also being urged to get their flu vaccination to protect themselves and their babies.  

All children aged between 2 and 17 years old are being offered the flu vaccine, with older children receiving it through their schools. 

Councillor Samia Chaudhary, Hounslow Council’s Cabinet Member for Adult Social Care, Public Health and Transformation, said: “Getting your winter vaccinations is the best way to protect yourself, your family and your community from the spread of these viruses.  

“These vaccinations are safe, for you and your family members, and will reduce the risk of severe illness if you catch the viruses. By getting your vaccination, you will also be helping to prevent a surge in cases which could have a serious impact on our local health services.”
