Covid-19 Vaccination Campaign 2021
The vaccination programme will continue to offer first dose vaccinations to those within the defined Cohorts 1-9 from the JCVI.
We have completed 72% of our second dose vaccinations including almost all those in Residential , Nursing and Supported Living care as well as those who are housebound in Bexhill area. This programme will continue until mid June 2021
Beyond this Bexhill Primary Care Network has made the shared decision not to continue the programme to younger age groups within Cohorts 10-12. This would have meant the programme continuing until late August 2021.
At this time we have all recognised the need to realign our GP service and Primary Care provisions to match the increasing needs of our patients as we gradually recover from the pandemic.
Sidley Medical Practice received 15,000 telephone contacts during last month April 2021 which is 5,000 more than in any previous month the last two years. This is alongside the Community Services contacting us by email and patient electronic communications.
Patients aged 49 or less in Cohorts 10-12 will be contacted by text or letter from the National Booking Service and will be able to book at vaccination centres at Hastings, Eastbourne and Brighton.
Please read the article provided to the Bexhill Observer in the link below for more information.
