Covid-19 booster jabs: Sussex figures revealed

Data from NHS England has been released to show the number of people who have had their booster vaccine in Sussex.

As we head towards the winter months there is a national push for people to get their booster/third covid jab.

Not everyone who has received a second dose is eligible for a booster/third dose. You’re eligible if you were vaccinated in Phase 1 of the vaccination programme and received your second dose at least six months ago.

Now data from NHS England has been revealed to show how many people have had their booster jab in areas across the UK, looking at the percentage of residents aged 50+ and 16+ who have had the booster vaccine.
