People aged 55 to 59 now eligible for their vaccination

Wednesday, 10 March 2021

People aged 55 and over are now being invited to book their Covid jab at mass vaccination sites.  

People receiving their invitation by letter are invited to go online to the national booking service to arrange a jab at a time and location that is convenient for them at one of the vaccination centres or pharmacy led services. If you are unable to go online, call 119 free of charge.  

The NHS is vaccinating in line with JCVI guidance which sees people invited to be vaccinated in order of risk, which increases with age. People aged between 50 and 55 are set to be invited shortly

- Preston Park Community PCN patients in group 6 (people aged 16 to 64 with underlying health conditions) are still being invited to Brighton Racecourse for their vaccinations, so please continue to wait to receive your invitation.

- All people with a learning disability are now in group 6. This means you will be invited for your COVID-19 vaccine very soon. Don’t worry if you haven’t been contacted yet.

- If you don't yet have a date for your second dose, please be patient. Unless you have already booked both doses through the national booking service, you must have your second dose at the same place you received your first. You will soon be contacted to arrange your appointment.

Please email us if you have any questions regarding vaccinations:
