We recognise that some people will have to travel further than others to get their vaccination, depending on where they live. If anyone is concerned about how they will travel to get a vaccine during lockdown, it should be noted that, under the national guidance, it is permissible to receive a lift from someone and there are community transport providers offering support for getting to medical appointments. You can find information about community and non-emergency transport on the Brighton and Hove City Council website.

A new campaign to combat any barriers stopping people getting their COVID-19 vaccination is now taking the vaccine to local residents in the heart of their communities, offering vital protection closer to peoples’ homes.
The ‘No one’s safe until we’re all safe’ campaign was launched earlier this month by the local NHS and Brighton and Hove City Council to ensure no one misses out on their COVID-19 vaccine offer, and to make it as easy as possible for people to get the protection they need to stay safe.
Our roving ambulance vaccine service is offering the COVID-19 vaccine in the community for anyone over the age of 50 years old, those who are aged under 50 and have a serious long term health issue, and unpaid carers.
If you are eligible and are yet to receive your vaccination, simply call 0300 303 8060 to book your appointment with this community service this week. Limited drop in appointments are also available.
Getting the vaccine in the community is easy; just bring one form of ID (photo ID not required) and NHS number, if known.
This week, vaccines are being given in the community:
