UPDATED 08/06/2021 CoVID19 Vaccinations

Posted on December 11th, 2020

COVID Vaccinations – Updated 6th June 2021

Covid-19 vaccination update – June 2021

 After 23 weeks supporting the Covid-19 vaccination programme, our team’s direct involvement has now come to a close.

With the increasing demand at all GP practices and the wider range of services we provide starting to resume, we have agreed it is the right time to focus fully back at the practice.

Over the time we have been involved in the programme, we have delivered more than 64,000 vaccinations and 48,500 people have now received their vaccine thanks to the work of the entire CHAMP team from the vaccinators to the hundreds of volunteers.

It remains really important to us that all of our patients are able to receive their vaccination.

 

We have worked with our NHS colleagues so that any of our patients who are eligible and have not yet had their vaccination are able to easily, and that there are services available for our patients as soon as they become eligible.

For all enquiries about vaccination please email sxccg.vaccinenequeries@nhs.net Please do not call the surgery as we are unable to provide answers to any queries regarding vaccination bookings or concerns.

The Selsey vaccination centre and Tangmere vaccination centre have now closed but here is where you will be able to receive your vaccination – and how to book it:

 

If you are aged 40 and over and need your first dose – please call 119 or visit the national booking system to arrange your appointment. Services will only show when they have available appointments and so if there isn’t a local centre showing please try again at a later time and more options will become available.

 

If you are aged 39 and under and need your first dose – it is recommended that you have an alternative to the AstraZeneca vaccine. Please call 119 or visit the national booking system to arrange your appointment. Services will only show that have the recommended vaccine for you, and so if there isn’t a local centre showing please try again at a later time and more options will become available. The Westgate vaccination centre is expecting to be able to offer the Pfizer vaccine by the middle of June, and appointments will be available on the national booking system’s website and 119 as soon as this is confirmed. Until that point, alternative services, such as the vaccination centres in Portsmouth and Brighton and other GP led services will be options for you.

 

If you are waiting for your second dose and had the AstraZeneca vaccine for your first vaccination – please call 119 or visit the national booking system to arrange your appointment. Westgate vaccination centre will be able to offer this appointment for you. Services will only show when they have available appointments and so if there isn’t a local centre showing please try again at a later time and more options will become available. Please make sure you do book and attend your second dose appointment to make sure you receive the highest level of protection.

 

If you are waiting for your second dose and had the Pfizer vaccine for your first vaccination – your details have been passed to the Sussex Vaccination Programme team to arrange your second dose appointment so that you can receive the same vaccine as your first dose. The clinics for your appointment will be taking place at Bognor Health Centre and you will shortly receive an update on how to arrange this. Transport is available for anyone who will find it challenging to get to the Bognor vaccination service. Details about the transport service will be shared with you with the details of your appointment.

 

If you have any further questions about the Covid-19 vaccination programme, there is lots of information on the SHCP website: Sussex COVID-19 Vaccination Programme | Sussex Health & Care Partnership (sussexhealthandcare.uk)

 

We want to take this opportunity to thank all of our patients who have supported our vaccination services, and all of the teams across CHAMP who have made it possible.
