If you had your first Covid vaccination at the Etchingham site between 20th January and 5th March and you do not have an appointment for your second vaccination, please call the surgery and we will be happy to appoint you.
If you attended any other site and you do not have a second vaccination appointment you will need to call 119 to book.
The Covid vaccines are all designed to work across two doses. Having two doses leads to a stronger, better immune response from your body and a longer-lasting protection. It is important that everyone gets two doses.

Astra Zeneca Second Dose Vaccinations

If for any reason the practices has not been able to contact you to appoint you within the 12 week timeframe please call the surgery.
We are aware that some patients are receiving fraudulent calls and text messages offering the COVID-19 vaccination, including asking for payment for the vaccination. Sussex Health Care Partnership have published information on this. Please follow the link for details on how to deal with, and report, any calls you may receive.

This is to protect other patients and our staff, who will continue to wear PPE, including surgical masks, for all face to face appointments. Thank you for your continued co-operation and support.
