Sussex Community NHS Foundation Trust is pleased to be able to offer a dedicated ‘Quiet COVID-19 Vaccination Session’ for people requiring their first dose COVID vaccination. The details are:
WHEN: Sunday 2nd May, 4.20pm – 7.20pm
WHERE: The Brighton Centre, Kings Road, Brighton, BN1 2GR (the seafront entrance)
BOOK: By calling or texting Lilly from the Public Involvement Team on 07443 770 754. If there is no response please leave a voicemail or text and we will call you back.
This Quiet Session is being offered to people living in Sussex who are who are currently eligible for the vaccine and over the age of 18 who may need more time for their appointment, or who have extra access needs where a quieter and calmer environment would help support them to receive their vaccination. This includes:
You can also book your carer in at the same time if they need their first vaccination dose too. The team will book in your second appointment for your second vaccination date on the day.
The Quiet Session at the Brighton Centre will offer:
A nurse (who will also have an assistant) will greet each patient at the entrance and support them through the Centre to a quiet and private Vaccination area.
All staff will be wearing clear visors so you can see their faces, which will also help those who need to lip read.
They will take you through all aspects of the process on a 1:1 basis, including clinical assessment and vaccination.
We will only use the downstairs of the Brighton Centre and have both the entrance and exit on the seafront side of the building.
Each person can bring a carer who can be present throughout their journey. Your carer can also have their first vaccination booked at the same time if they haven’t already received it.
There will only be 40 appointments being offered, which allows us to give you much more time for your vaccination (up to 20 minutes) and have one nurse per patient to support you throughout.
Bookings can be made by phone (or text) to the local NHS Public Involvement Team on 07443 770 754, who will take relevant details and pass on any additional information to the vaccination team to make the journey on the day as smooth as possible. This includes:
If you need support with transport to get to the Brighton Centre for your appointment during the Quiet Session, we will let you know how to arrange this after you have booked your appointment with our travel team.
A travel coordinator will ask you a few questions, and will help arrange for you to have a safe COVID-secure journey to the Brighton Centre for all Sussex residents.
The Brighton Centre is accessible by public transport and there are a number of public car parks nearby.
Anyone receiving their COVID-19 vaccination at the Brighton Centre will be entitled to one hour’s free parking in the Churchill Square Orange Car Park. Please follow these instructions to claim your hour’s free parking while you have your vaccination:
