Coronavirus: Vaccinations for the Over 70s

 

BACK TO MAIN INDEX

 

Thousands of people are set to receive their vaccination in Sussex this week as teams across our services work to offer the vaccination to all those in the first four eligible groups by the middle of February.

To date, more than 350,000 people have received this vital protection, including 10,000 over the weekend.

To ensure everyone has been offered the opportunity to have the jab, people aged 70 and over who have not yet been vaccinated and who would like to, are now able to contact the national booking service directly to arrange an appointment.

People can go online here or call 119.

The national booking service shows appointments at the larger vaccination centres and at the select pharmacy led services and allows patients to choose a time slot and location that suits them.

GP led vaccination services are also continuing to work this week, and their teams are contacting people in the eligible groups directly over the coming days to offer appointments at these local services.

If you have an appointment both through the national booking service and then through your local GP led team, please cancel the one you do not want so the slot can be used by someone else. To cancel your appointment through the national booking service, simply visit Manage my appointments and you will be guided to be able to cancel.
