Thousands of vaccines available for 16-17 year olds in Sussex this weekend

‘Thousands’ of Covid-19 vaccines are being made available to 16 and 17 year olds throughout Sussex this weekend, as the start of a new school year looms.

Teenagers were made eligible for one dose of the life-saving vaccine last month, as part of the continued roll-out of the vaccination programme.

Vaccination centres, GPs and hospitals have been contact 16 and 17 year olds throughout the county to invite them to receive the jab and some targeted walk-in sessions have been taking place.

But, this week, even more walk-in clinics have been set up to make it as easy as possible for young people to get their vaccination.

Teenagers are now being invited to receive their first dose of a Covid-19 vaccine.

A spokesperson for the Covid-19 vaccination programme said “Our vaccination teams have been working hard to call in 16 and 17 year olds for their vaccine, but we know that walk-in clinics really work for this group so they can come with family and friends.

“There are more than ten sites which are open for walk-in vaccinations- with Brighton, Chichester and Eastbourne open every single day.

“With schools and colleges re-opening next week after the summer, we want as many 16-17 year olds to be protected before term starts, and so we encourage anyone who is in this age group and who hasn’t had it yet to come forward this week.”
