UPDATE: COVID-19 Health and Social Care Vaccinations – national booking service open
Eligible health and social care workers who have not booked their vaccination appointment, can now do this through the national vaccination booking system or by calling 119.
This is in addition to the local hospital centres you can book via the local NHS website.
We’re encouraging everyone to try and book their vaccination appointment by mid-February if you can.
Appointments are available for all staff (including agency) health and social care workers working in Sussex. Full details of eligible workers are set out in the Government’s ‘Green Book’ (see page 11). At this stage it does not include informal family and friend carers. The NHS vaccination centres will only vaccinate people who are eligible.
Have you had your COVID-19 vaccination? – please tell us.
The County Council is required to submit data to the Government this Friday (12 February) on the numbers of eligible health and social care staff who have had a COVID-19 vaccination. Please make sure you complete the survey below if you or your staff have had the vaccination so we can help monitor the take up in West Sussex.
The survey will only take you a couple of minutes to complete and will help us to provide accurate data to the Government.
Further information for care providers
Please also see the useful translated vaccination materials, videos and other information about the vaccine in this Provider Zone website which you may find useful to share with your staff.
Vaccination doesn’t negate the need for social distancing and hand hygiene
Whilst having the full course of the vaccine will reduce the chance of you suffering from COVID-19, you may still be at risk of catching it and spreading it to other people. Therefore, it is important that everyone continues to follow current government guidance around delivering care and support and follows current advice to stay safe.
