Latest figures for Shoreham and Southwick
Well over 90% of patients over 65 have now been vaccinated and we are getting close to this figure for the 50+ age group too.
Are you over 50 years old?
If you are aged 50 and over and have not yet booked in for your appointment please do so asap. We still have a lot of appointments to offer for Saturday 10th April for first vaccination at Northbourne Medical Centre.
Second vaccination update
We are now in the process of carrying out second vaccinations. This week several teams have been out to our Care Homes and have started the second vaccinations for the residents.
Housebound patients will follow shortly.
We have lots of clinics coming up over the next few weeks:
Friday 2nd April – Fully booked
Saturday 10th April – Appointment available for first and second Astra Zeneca vaccination.
The next clinics following those dates will be: Friday 16th April, Sat 16th April and Sunday 17th April for second dose Pfizer vaccinations.
Will you have difficulty getting to your vaccination:
Sussex residents who have no means to get to their COVID-19 vaccination appointment are now able to book a free return journey to help them attend.
To book free travel please book your vaccination appointment first and then call:
- 01444 275 008 for West Sussex residents
to speak to a travel coordinator. The booking service is available between 10:00-13:00 and 14:00-17:00 Monday to Friday.
Once you are through to a travel coordinator you will be asked the following questions:
- Do you have access to transport to attend your vaccine appointment?
- Do you have a family member, friend or carer who can help with transport? They do not have to be in your bubble as per government guidelines.
If both of these options are not available the travel coordinator will arrange transport for you, including any additional needs such as wheelchair-friendly vehicles.
All transport providers have signed up to a COVID-19 safety policy to ensure that all precautions are in place for a safe journey.
