News from the area's Vaccine Champion

Published: 31 March 2021

Hi all, hope you are keeping well and safe and looking forward to a careful easing of lockdown!
In the seven days to Saturday 20 March there were 271 new cases in the WSCC area, and in those aged 60+ there were 39 new cases.

So we know that our vaccination programme has made strong progress and more than 900,000 vaccinations have now been delivered across Sussex.
However, we also know that there are just over 138,000 people who are in the eligible priority groups and are yet to have their vaccination.

If you are aged 50 and over, are clinically extremely vulnerable, have an underlying health condition, or are an unpaid carer - you are eligible and you can arrange your appointment today.

There are appointments available at the vaccination centres - book now online or via 119. Alternatively contact your local vaccination service to arrange an appointment.

Please pass this email to anyone you know who might be hesitating and for those friends and relatives of different ethnicities, below is a video of encouragement from Sir Lenny and several well-known actors. Also, a video below of encouragement for those working in Care Homes and Health Care settings who may also be hesitant.

Don't forget that we can now meet outdoors again as gatherings of six people or two households, along with the return of some outdoor sports activities, as part of the government’s roadmap out of lockdown.

If you have questions, please don't hesitate to get in touch with me via this email or call me on 07968 296759

Best regards
Vaccine Champion
