Update on the COVID-19 booster programme
Across Sussex the NHS and its partners are working extremely hard to roll out the COVID-19 booster vaccination programme to our communities.
All adults are eligible from Monday 13 December, and you will be able to book via the National Booking System from Wednesday 15 December.
You can book your booster for 3 months from the date of second vaccine, and you can access the National Booking System to book the appointment from 2 months.
We are working at pace to increase the availability of appointments so that there are plenty of options for people on the National Booking System. Some local vaccination services will also contact patients directly.
New appointments are being added every day across our vaccination services. We have been offering more than 80,000 appointments a week and in the last two weeks we have increased the number of available appointments by more than 10,000 a week. Further availability will come online from Wednesday 15 December.
We will be working with all of our sites to take further steps to increase what they can offer again, including opening later and on more days.
All of these appointments will be added to the National Booking System and so we encourage everyone who is aged 18 and over, is yet to have their booster and who is approaching 3 months from your second vaccine to use the National Booking System to arrange your appointment when you are able to do so.
In terms of any planned appointments with the Meads Medical Centre, there are no changes at the current time and everyone should attend your planned appointments as normal. If we need to make any changes, we will contact you directly.

We are pleased to announce that we have reinstated our online bookings for those wishing to book a routine telephone appointment with a GP.
Patients using the online booking system should record a brief reason for their call in the "Reasons" box.
If booking an appointment time between 7.30am and 12.30pm, patients should expect to receive a telephone call the day of their appointment before 1pm. Patients booking an appointment between 2pm and 6.30pm should expect to receive a telephone call in the afternoon before 7pm.
Patients should keep their telephones with them and switched on as the GP will not be able to keep trying to reach you in the event that you do not answer your telephone.
We hope that restoring our online booking option will be helpful for our patients
