Thousands of people eligible for a Spring COVID-19 booster have not yet come forward

The NHS in Sussex is calling for anyone who 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. For the latest list of walk in sessions and more information about the vaccination programme visit COVID-19 vaccinations – Sussex Health & Care Partnership (sussexhealthandcare.uk)

“It may seem that COVID-19 has gone away but it is still in our communities and we want to make sure our most vulnerable have this extra protection for the coming months.

“By making sure that you have a spring booster when you are due means that it will cover you over the summer and you have had it ahead of the autumn.”

The Vaccine Data Resolution Service (VDRS) has been set up to help people with missing or incorrect vaccination records.

If you have been vaccinated in England, have a current NHS number and are registered with a GP practice in England then the service can help resolve issues with evidence of your vaccinations.

If you have missing or incorrect COVID-19 vaccination data, please call 119 and ask the call handler to make a referral to the VDRS team on your behalf. The VDRS team will then call you back within 5 working days.

Please note they cannot provide clinical advice and cannot assist at this time with queries related to vaccinations received overseas. If the query relates to personal information that is incorrect on a patient record (e.g. name, address), these will still need to be resolved by their GP practice.

People aged 40 to 49 will be able to book their COVID booster. Services are working to make more appointments available over the coming weeks. If you can’t see a service close to you, please keep trying, more appointments are added daily

Contact details for Preston Park Community PCN for any queries/requests for housebound and residential home patients for Covid and flu vaccinations:
