Preparations to launch the COVID-19 vaccination programme for people aged over 80 in Hailsham and the surrounding area are further progressing this week with the aim to start vaccinating next week.

GPs from the town’s three surgeries – Bridgeside Surgery, Hailsham Medical Group and The Quintins Medical Centre – are working in partnership with Sussex Community NHS Foundation Trust to provide the vaccination to their patients, starting with those over the age of 80.

Vaccinations will be provided from surgery sites in Hailsham as soon as vaccine supplies are received. Preparations are progressing with the aim that the first vaccinations will begin next week subject to vaccine delivery.

People are asked not to contact your GP practice but to wait until you are contacted. You will be contacted as soon as an appointment is available for you.

The COVID-19 vaccination programme is the biggest immunisation programme ever undertaken by the NHS.  As we roll out vaccines, we’d like to remind people of 3 things:

  1. The NHS will contact you when it’s your turn, so please do not contact us beforehand.
  2. Please act on your invite when it comes.

Remember Hands, Face, Space. It will save lives and help the NHS.
