Hello,

We hope you are keeping well.

Attached to this email is an update on the COVID-19 vaccination programme

– if you are in groups 1-4 you can still book your appointment by calling 119 or going online http://www.nhs.uk/covid-vaccination

– If you are aged 65 or over you can also use the above options to book your appointment.

– People aged 16 or over who are classed as ‘at risk’ are being contacted from this week by their local GP-led vaccination service to have their vaccinations. If you are unsure as to whether you are ‘at risk’, a good indicator is that such people are usually called by their GP practice every year to have their free flu jab. See more information about the ‘at risk’ group

–  Informal carers are also eligible in group 6, and further information as to how carers will be identified and invited for their vaccinations will be available within the next few days.

More than 460,000 people have now had their first COVID-19 vaccination in the first phase of the roll out to our communities.

Thanks to the hard work of our vaccination teams, we have achieved the national target and across Sussex more than 90% of everyone aged 70 and over has received the first dose of their vaccination.
