Apologies. The information about booster vaccination in the Mosque turned out not to be quite correct. The 4th booster at the mosque basement (next session Sunday 1030am to 230pm)  is currently available only for people who are immune-suppressed or who meet the criteria for classification for emergency anti-virals. To get the 4th shot you need to provide relevant evidence; letter from doctor or consultant. If you have that backup the service is very useful as 4th Covid booster jabs are hard to find even for those whose vulnerability makes them eligible. Mr Amjid Ali Riaz, the surgeon running the service, says that the vaccination doctors can come to street level for people unable to manage the stairs down to the basement. 
And the Vaccine bus is coming to Cricklewood (Oaklands Road) on Thursday 24 March and 31 March 11am-5pm. No need to book appointment, bring ID, have NHS no or be registered with GP. And if you are unable to leave your home you can arrange to get vaccinated at  home by phoning 020 3114 7185

Opportunistic intruders …

.. in Teignmouth Road (and no doubt elsewhere) checking door security and back gates late at night. At 1.30am on Monday night a member’s security camera recorded a guy trying the strength of the front door and then checking out the back gate.
