Spring COVID-19 Booster Vaccinations
Thousands of people eligible for a Spring COVID-19 booster have not yet come forward.
The NHS in Sussex is calling for anyone who is now due a second COVID-19 vaccination to book theirs this week.
Latest figures show that 116,628 of those who are eligible have had their spring or second booster, but 91,894 people are now eligible and are yet to come forward or be vaccinated.
With hundreds of appointments available this week, people are being urged to book theirs as soon as possible.
People are eligible for a spring or second booster if they are aged 75 and over or they are aged 12 years and over and have a weakened immune system.
People living in older people’s care homes are also eligible and specific visits are being planned in order to make sure these people get their vaccination.
In the majority of cases, people will receive the Moderna vaccination – one of the three approved vaccines in the UK widely used throughout the programme to date.
People can book an appointment from three months of the date of their original booster.
No invite is needed.
The NHS is also calling on family members and friends to make sure their loved ones have received their vaccine if they are due.
Call 119 from 8am to 8pm or use the National Booking Service website to book a local appointment.
Walk in sessions are also available every day.
