Everyone aged between 55 and 59 in East Sussex is now being contacted with the offer of a vaccination against the virus.
The life-saving jab can be given at a time and place convenient for you.
When you receive a letter it will invite you to go online to the national booking service to arrange this. If anyone is not able to go online, they can call 119 free of charge.
Do you look after a relative, friend or neighbour who couldn’t manage without your support?
If you’re not already in contact with local carers services or registered with your GP as a carer, you can register to be updated on getting a COVID vaccination once information is available:
If you’re aged 18 or over and in receipt of Carers Allowance, or registered with your GP as a carer, you can book your vaccination appointment directly. For more information, visit: Vaccination for carers, frequent questions
It’s good news that the number of Covid cases in East Sussex has been falling steadily – as reported by East Sussex County Council.
The situation is still fragile. Please continue to follow the restrictions in place, even if you have been vaccinated. Stay at home wherever possible, don’t meet more than one other person outdoors and keep a distance from other people.
