Covid Vaccinations – Booster Programme

We’re doing everything we can to vaccinate patients during the Christmas period. In partnership with Alliance for Better Care, we have announced further Walk-In Clinics and have added more appointment slots to the NHS booking system. To book an appointment, please do this via the NHS website www.nhs.uk/covidvaccine For a list of local walk-in clinics, please visit the Alliance for Better Care website https://abcltd.org.uk/covid-vaccination-programme/walk-in-clinics/

We kindly ask you not to call the surgery about your Covid-19 Vaccination as we need to keep the lines open for urgent patient enquiries during this busy time. For those not online, you can call 119.

Across Sussex the NHS and its partners are working extremely hard to roll out the COVID-19 booster vaccination programme to our communities.

All adults are eligible from Monday 13 December, and you will be able to book via the National Booking System from Wednesday 15 December.

You can book your booster for 3 months from the date of second vaccine, and you can access the National Booking System to book the appointment from 2 months.

We are working at pace with our ABC Federation Partner and our CCG to increase the availability of appointments so that there are plenty of options for people on the National Booking System. Some local vaccination services may also contact patients directly.

New appointments are being added every day across our vaccination services. We have been offering more than 80,000 appointments a week and in the last two weeks we have increased the number of available appointments by more than 10,000 a week. Further availability will come online from Wednesday 15 December.

All of these appointments will be added to the National Booking System and so we encourage everyone who is aged 18 and over, is yet to have their booster and who is approaching 3 months from your second vaccine to use the National Booking System to arrange your appointment when you are able to do so.

In terms of any planned appointments with the Practice, there are no changes at the current time and everyone should attend your planned appointments as normal. If we need to make any changes, we will contact you directly.
