A dedicated ‘Quiet Covid-19 Vaccination Session’ for people in West Sussex requiring their first dose Covid vaccination is now available.
The session is taking place on Saturday 22 May 2021, 8.30 am – 3.45 pm at the Children and Family Centre (Home Start Portacabin), St James’ Road, Chichester PO19 7AB This Quiet Session is being offered to people who are eligible for the vaccine and over the age of 40, who may need more time for their appointment, or have extra access needs where a quieter and calmer environment would help support them to receive their vaccination. People can also book their carer in at the same time if they need their first vaccination dose too. How to book, together with useful easy read documents, including reasonable adjustments form, and how to access free transport if required, can all be found on the Sussex Health & Care Partnership
Everyone under the age of 40 will be offered an alternative to the Oxford AstraZeneca vaccine when they become eligible. If you are eligible and are recommended to receive an alternative vaccine, you will be able to book an appointment through the national booking system very soon. Read more about the latest guidance
Please don’t forget to follow government guidance around ‘hands, face, space and fresh air’ once you’ve had your vaccination.
