Teams from Sussex Community NHS Foundation Trust are running a number of vaccination centres in Sussex. These centres are in addition to the local GP-led vaccination services that now cover all patients in Sussex.

Vaccinations are by appointment only.

Appointments are currently available to people who are most at risk of coronavirus. These groups have been identified by the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI). An up to date list of who can receive the vaccination is available here.

This leaflet explains more: Why do I have to wait? 

The NHS is contacting people who are eligible to have the vaccine.If you receive a letter inviting you to book an appointment at the vaccination centre, you can choose to wait to be contacted by your local GP-led vaccination service if that would be more convenient.

Appointments cannot be booked directly with any of the centres, so please do not contact them, the building owners or the local council directly.

Update 8 April 2021: Oxford/AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine

The MHRA is carrying out a detailed review of reports of a very rare blood clotting problem affecting a small number of people who have had the Oxford/AstraZeneca vaccine. The problem can also happen in people who have not been vaccinated and it's not yet clear why it affects some people.

If you have a vaccination appointment booked, please attend as planned. The COVID-19 vaccine can help stop you getting seriously ill or dying from coronavirus, so it is important that you still come forward and get this vital protection.

If you have already had your vaccination, there is no change to your planned second dose unless you had had significant side effects with the first dose.

If you experience any of these symptoms between four days and four weeks after your vaccination, please contact 111 immediately:

  • a severe headache that is not relieved with painkillers or is getting worse
  • a headache that feels worse when you lie down or bend over
  • a headache that's unusual for you and occurs with blurred vision, feeling or being sick, problems speaking, weakness, drowsiness or seizures (fits)
  • a rash that looks like small bruises or bleeding under the skin
  • shortness of breath, chest pain, leg swelling or persistent abdominal (tummy) pain

A Government statement about the Oxford/AstraZeneca vaccine says:

“The Oxford/AstraZeneca vaccine is safe, effective and has already saved thousands of lives.

“As the MHRA – the UK’s independent regulator – and the JCVI have said, the benefits of the vaccine far outweigh the risks for the vast majority of adults.

“Everybody who has already had a first dose of the AstraZeneca vaccine should receive a second dose of the same brand, irrespective of age, except for the very small number of people who experienced blood clots with low platelet counts from their first vaccination.

“The government will follow today’s updated advice, which sets out that, as a precaution, it is preferable for people under the age of 30 with no underlying health conditions to be offered an alternative vaccine where possible once they are eligible.

You can find more information about the vaccine on the NHS website. There is also a factsheet about the COVID-19 vaccination and blood clotting, which you can read here.

You can also find the answers to a number of frequently asked questions about the COVID-19 vaccine on the Sussex Health and Care Partnership website.

Attending your appointment

There are plenty of signs at each vaccination centre to show you where you need to go. We also have plenty of staff and volunteers on hand to help you and answer your questions.

Remember to wear a face covering (unless you are exempt) and stay at least 2m away from other people. We have a one way system in place and measures in place to help you.

Please do not arrive more than five minutes before your appointment time as space in the buildings is limited and you may need to wait outside until your appointment time.

Our centres are well ventilated for your safety, so please dress warmly. 

If you need extra assistance, please make yourself known to one of our friendly staff and volunteers and they will be happy to help.

Getting to your vaccination appointment

If you have no means to get to your COVID-19 vaccination appointment, free transport is available to help you attend. 

Please book your vaccination appointment first, then call to speak to a travel coordinator on:

  • 01444 275008 (if you live in West Sussex)
  • 07871 603235 (if you live in East Sussex

The booking service is available Monday to Friday, from 10am - 1pm and 2pm - 5pm.

The travel coordinator will ask:

  • Do you have access to transport to attend your vaccine appointment?
  • Do you have a family member, friend or carer who can help with transport? (They do not have to be in your bubble as per government guidelines)

If neither of these options is available to you, the travel coordinator will arrange transport, including any additional needs such as wheelchair-friendly vehicles.

All transport providers have signed up to a COVID-19 safety policy to ensure that all precautions are in place for a safe journey.

Need to cancel or change your appointment?

If you are unable to attend your appointment, please call 119 and they will help you to rebook. Alternatively, if you received an email confirmation of your appointment, it will contain a booking link which you can click to cancel and rearrange your appointment.

More information about the vaccination programme in Sussex is available on the Sussex Health and Care Partnership website.

Frequently asked questions

Eligibility and booking an appointment

How do I get an appointment at a vaccination centre?
The national NHS booking service is writing to eligible people, living within 60 miles of a vaccination centre, inviting them to book an appointment at the centre online or over the phone. The letter contains all the details people will need to book their appointment. At present eligible people prioritised by the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) are:

  • people aged 45 and over
  • people who are clinically extremely vulnerable
  • people who live or work in care homes for older adults
  • frontline health and social care workers
  • People with a learning disability
  • carers

In the case of the centre at Etchingham, local GPs are also contacting residents direct to invite them for appointments.

Who do I contact if I have any problems with my appointment?
Appointments are organised by the NHS national booking service. They can be contacted free of charge on 119.

Are the vaccination centres still open even if it snows?
Yes, our vaccination centres remain open in bad weather. In the unlikely event that your appointment needs to be changed, someone from the national booking team will contact you.

If you are unable to make it to your appointment because of bad weather, you can call 119 to rebook your appointment for another day.

Can I receive my second vaccination at one of SCFT’s vaccination centres if I received my first dose elsewhere?
No. You will need to return to the same service that gave you your first dose, unless they tell you otherwise.

I’ve heard I can get a vaccine late in the day without an appointment
You will be contacted directly when you are eligible for vaccine, either directly by a GP or via the national booking service. You cannot turn up at any vaccination centres without an appointment

How do I get onto the ‘reserve list’ for vaccinations at the centres?
You will be contacted directly when you are eligible for a vaccine, either directly by a GP or via the national booking service. You cannot turn up at the vaccination centre without an appointment.

How do vaccination centres differ from GP-led local vaccination services?
Vaccination centres are larger facilities with many more vaccinations taking place at once. They are located with good transport links and serve a much wider population. However, just like GP-led services, the vaccination centres are still focused on the same priority cohorts. At present that remains is the over 80s, with the over 70s and clinically extremely vulnerable to follow shortly. Vaccination centres also differ from GP-led services in how appointments are arranged.

While GPs invite their patients to get vaccinated at their local vaccination service, appointments at the vaccination centres are made through the national booking service.

How do people use the national booking service?
The national booking service will be writing to eligible people, living within 60 miles of a vaccination centre, inviting them to book an appointment at the centre online or over the phone. The letter contains all the details people will need to book their appointment. Anyone receiving a letter from the national booking service can choose whether to book an appointment at the vaccination centre, or wait until they are contacted by their GP for an appointment at their local vaccination service if that would be more convenient.

Will people receive invitations from both their GP and the national booking service?
When you receive your first dose, or book an appointment through the national booking system, this will be recorded on the national vaccination database. Until then, you may receive one invitation to book at your local service from your GP and another to book at a vaccination centre from the national booking service. If you receive two invitations, you can choose which is more convenient for you. In time, as more vaccination centres come online, there will be more options available through the national booking system.

At the vaccination centre

What can I expect when I attend my appointment at a vaccination centre?
Please arrive no more than five minutes before your appointment as queuing at our sites can be difficult. If you do arrive early, please dress warmly as you might have to wait outside. This is to make sure that we maintain social distancing and keep everyone safe.

We are asking everyone who attends an appointment to wear a face covering, unless you are exempt from doing so.

Please do not attend your appointment if you have any of the symptoms of coronavirus:

  • a new continuous cough
  • high temperature
  • loss of taste or smell

While you wait for your vaccination you will be asked some questions by NHS staff:

  • Are you currently unwell with a fever?
  • Have you ever had any serious reactions to a vaccine that needed admission to hospital?
  • Do you have any allergies?

Staff will be on hand to help you if you answer yes to any of these questions.

People who have tested positive for coronavirus cannot have the vaccine until at least four weeks after their symptoms began or the date of their first positive test.

You will also be asked if you have any special requirements, such as language interpretation/translation, a disability that will make the process difficult for you and require additional support, and whether injections make you feel particularly unwell or feint. Our trained NHS staff will be there to help you every step of the way, and can take you to a more private area if you need extra support.

You will also be asked to give your written consent to having the vaccine. Staff will help you through this process. All the information that you provide is treated in the strictest confidence and stored safely and securely.

After these questions, you will be asked to queue for your injection, keeping socially distanced from the person in front and behind.

You will enter a special area where trained NHS staff will give you your injection and look after you. The whole process should only take a few minutes. You will be given an information leaflet about the vaccination, which should answer any questions you may have. You can read it here.

Can I bring someone with me for support?
Yes, if you need a relative, carer or friend to accompany you to get your vaccine that is absolutely fine, but please limit this to one person as space is limited and we need to carefully manage the number of people inside the Brighton Centre at any one time to keep you and our staff safe.

Are there any precautions I need to take before or after I receive the vaccine?
You should continue to follow existing advice to reduce the spread of COVID-19 as this will enable you to avoid becoming ill with COVID-19 or other respiratory illnesses, before and after vaccination.

Please wear a face covering when attending the vaccination clinic.

How long do I have to wait after getting the vaccine before I can leave the centre?
Everyone who receives a COVID-19 vaccine will be observed for any immediate reactions during the period they are receiving any post-immunisation information and confirmation of their second appointment, if required.

Questions before vaccination

I’ve had COVID-19 already/tested positive for antibodies, do I need to be vaccinated?
Yes, you should still be vaccinated, although not until at least four weeks after the onset of symptoms or the date of your first positive test.

There is no evidence of any safety concerns from vaccinating individuals with a past history of COVID-19 infection, or with detectable COVID-19 antibody, so people who have had COVID-19 (whether confirmed or suspected) can still receive the vaccine when it is their time to do so.

I don’t know anyone who’s had COVID-19, so why do we need a vaccine?
The number of people worldwide who have died with COVID-19 has passed one million, with many regions still reporting surging numbers of new infections.

In Northern Ireland, there have been many deaths and thousands more people hospitalised, or with ongoing health complications.

People continue to get infected, and once the virus starts to spread it can do so rapidly. Even if you, your family or friends haven’t experienced it firsthand, that doesn’t mean it isn’t a threat. Protect your family and others. Being vaccinated will help to protect you and reduce the spread of this deadly virus.

Do I have to wait after getting the flu vaccine before I can get the COVID vaccine?
Current recommendations are that you should wait for seven days after having another vaccination before having the COVID-19 vaccine. This is to avoid incorrectly attributing any side effects to the COVID-19 vaccine.

Can I get the vaccine if I’m pregnant or if I’m planning to get pregnant?
The Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) has amended its previous highly precautionary advice on COVID-19 vaccines and pregnancy or breastfeeding. Vaccination with either vaccine in pregnancy should be considered where the risk of exposure SARS-CoV2 infection is high and cannot be avoided, or where the woman has underlying conditions that place her at very high risk of serious complications of COVID-19, and the risks and benefits of vaccination should be discussed.

Those who are trying to become pregnant do not need to avoid pregnancy after vaccination, and breastfeeding women may be offered vaccination with either vaccine following consideration of the woman’s clinical need for immunisation against COVID-19. The UK Chief Medical Officers agree with this advice.

Further information is available in this leaflet.

I have a health condition. How will I be sure the vaccine is safe?
The vaccines do not contain living organisms, and so are safe for people with disorders of the immune system. These people may not respond so well to the vaccine. Any person with a history of immediate-onset anaphylaxis to a vaccine, medicine or food should not receive the Pfizer BioNtech vaccine. A second dose of the Pfizer BioNtech vaccine should not be given to those who have experienced anaphylaxis to the first dose of Pfizer BioNtech vaccination.

Vaccine recipients should be monitored for 15 minutes after vaccination, with a longer observation period when indicated after clinical assessment.

Women of childbearing age, those who are pregnant, planning a pregnancy or breastfeeding should read the detailed information here.

Can the vaccine affect fertility?
There is no evidence to suggest that COVID-19 vaccines will affect fertility. Claims of any effect of COVID-19 vaccination on fertility are speculative and not supported by any data.

Will the vaccine be free if I’m in a priority group? Will it be free if I’m not?
The vaccine will be provided free to those recommended to be vaccinated by JCVI. It may take a while to get to everybody, but, when you are invited, make sure you get yours.

Questions after vaccination

Will other measures (social distancing/face coverings/lockdowns) still apply to me if I’ve had the vaccine?
Yes, you should still act to prevent the spread of coronavirus in the community and stick to the regulations.

Can I still spread the virus to others if I am vaccinated?
The purpose of the vaccine is to prevent you from getting COVID-19 infection, this should reduce the chances of you being able to spread the infection by becoming ill. However, as the vaccine is new it is not been possible to establish if vaccination will prevent carriage of the virus in the nose and throat of people who have been vaccinated. Therefore, the best protection you can have is to have the vaccination when you are invited to attend.

If a person has received the vaccination and is subsequently notified that they have been in direct contact with a positive case - are they still required to isolate?
Yes. While the purpose of the vaccine is to prevent you from getting COVID-19 infection, which should reduce the chances of you being able to spread the infection by becoming ill; as the vaccine is new it is not been possible to establish if vaccination will prevent carriage of the virus in the nose and throat of people who have been vaccinated. Therefore if you are a household contact of or are advised by Contact Tracing or the STOPCOVID NI App you are a close contact of a case of COVID-19 you need to self-isolate.

Once we get a vaccine, can we end restrictions and lockdowns?
An effective vaccine will be the best way to protect the most vulnerable from coronavirus and the biggest breakthrough since the pandemic began. It will be a huge step forward in the fight against coronavirus, potentially saving tens of thousands of lives. Once vaccinations begin, the Government will closely monitor the impact on individuals, on HSC pressures and on the spread of the virus.

The full impact on infection rates will not become clear until a large number of people have been vaccinated, but as larger numbers do get vaccinated, we will hopefully move further along the path back to a more normal way of life.

As large numbers of people from at risk groups are given a vaccine, the Government will be able to examine the impact on infection rates, hospitalisation and reduced deaths; if successful this should in time lead to a substantial reassessment of current restrictions. Given the numbers of people to be vaccinated it is likely to be many months before the full impact of the programme is seen in the community.

What percentage of the population needs to get the vaccine to have herd immunity?
When a high proportion of a population receive an effective vaccine it becomes difficult for the disease to spread, this gives protection to vulnerable people such as newborn babies and other people who can’t be vaccinated which is known as herd immunity. It is not clear what proportion of people would be required to be vaccinated to achieve this because the vaccines against the disease are new and COVID-19 is a global pandemic infection.

Therefore, the best protection you can have is to have the vaccination when you are invited to attend.

Questions about the vaccine itself

Will the vaccine become a yearly injection like the flu vaccine?
Booster doses of COVID-19 vaccine are not yet recommended because the need for, and timing of, boosters has not yet been determined.

How effective is the first vaccine injection without getting the second one?
It is important to have both doses of the vaccine to give you the best protection. While the first dose acts as an important immune response primer, the second dose is needed to boost your body’s immune response to the COVID-19 virus providing the best protection for you.

Which vaccine will I get?
You will be offered a vaccine which has been approved by the independent Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) as safe and effective and recommended by the JCVI for persons of your age or risk group.

Is one vaccine better than another?
Each candidate vaccine will have completed a full programme of research, including considerations of vaccine efficacy and safety. Each vaccine will be reviewed by the independent Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) which will grant approval and licencing of vaccines if they meet the required effectiveness and safety requirements. Any vaccine offered will be effective and safe.

Can I choose which vaccine I receive?
As people have to complete a course of two vaccinations and the programme will be delivered in a phased approach to ensure those most at risk are vaccinated first, it is not possible to choose one vaccine over another.

Is it a live vaccine?
Neither of the first two vaccines expected to be used in the UK are live vaccines. They are therefore suitable to use in those who are immunosuppressed, although the response may be sub-optimal and other measures to reduce risk will need to continue to be observed.

Who can get the vaccine?
It is expected that all adults aged 18 years will be offered the vaccine in due course. There are very few individuals who cannot receive the Pfizer-BioNTech or AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccines. Where there is doubt, rather than withholding vaccination, appropriate advice should be sought from the relevant specialist, or from the local immunisation or health protection team, to allow individuals to make an informed decision.

The vaccine should not be given to those who have had a previous systemic allergic reaction (including immediate-onset anaphylaxis) to:

  • A previous dose of the same COVID-19 vaccine
  • Any component of the COVID-19 vaccine being offered

or to individuals with:

  • Current COVID-19 infection or history of COVID-19 infection within the last four weeks.
  • Severe illness and a high fever on the day of vaccination.

Vaccine recipients should be monitored for 15 minutes after vaccination, with a longer observation period when indicated after clinical assessment. The Pfizer BioNTech vaccine contains polyethylene glycol (PEG), which is from a group of known allergens commonly found in medicines and also in household goods and cosmetics. Known allergy to PEG is extremely rare but people with this allergy should not receive the Pfizer BioNTech vaccine. Patients with undiagnosed PEG allergy may have a history of unexplained anaphylaxis or of anaphylaxis to multiple classes of drugs. The AstraZeneca vaccine does not contain PEG and is a suitable alternative.

Have the vaccines been tested in people over 80 years old or just in younger populations?
The vaccines have been tested in people aged 80 years and above. SARS-C0V-2 vaccine trials have only just begun in children and there are therefore, very limited data on safety and effectiveness in this group at present.

If I receive a RNA-based vaccine what are the implications for it tampering with my DNA in longer term?
The Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine is a messenger RiboNucelaic Acid (mRNA) vaccine. The mRNA that is used to make a virus protein is read by your cells and that protein is produced for a short time. The code for creating that protein is never incorporated into your DNA, mRNA is read directly by the cells and a protein which generates a protective immune response is produced from it. The vaccine will therefore not affect your DNA.

Is there gluten in the vaccine as I am coeliac?
Gluten is a family of proteins found in certain cereal grains. COVID-19 vaccinations do not contain gluten.

Can the COVID-19 vaccine lead to people having a positive COVID-19 nose or throat swab test?
No. The vaccines being used produce a protective immune antibody response which can be measured by serology blood tests. They do not affect a PCR swab test, which is the basis of diagnosing COVID-19 infection by detecting viral RNA in the nose and throat. PCR tests will be used as part of the vaccine effectiveness assessment in those who are.

How long do I have to wait between the first and second doses of the vaccine?
You will be given an appointment to receive your second dose up to 12 weeks after the first. More information on rescheduling of the second dose of the Pfizer vaccine is available here.

What happens if I don’t go for my second appointment?
The first dose of both COVID-19 vaccines will provide short term protection. It is important to get the second dose to provide more full, longer term protection against COVID-19.

Will the vaccine fully protect me against COVID-19?
The current vaccines have demonstrated a high level of protection against COVID-19 but no vaccine provides 100% protection. However, as more people in the population are vaccinated with an effective vaccine the risks of circulating virus should increase protecting those people who either do not respond fully to the vaccine or who are unable to have the vaccine because of allergic reactions.

If I have the vaccine will I be immune for life? Can I still catch COVID-19 after I’ve been immunised?
Duration of protection remains unknown, and further doses may be necessary.

Has the vaccine been rushed? Is it safe?
For a vaccine to reach the general public it will have to work and be safe.

There may be a misconception that vaccine research takes a long time but it isn’t the research that takes the time – it’s all the steps beforehand, like getting funding and approval. What’s sped up in the development of a COVID-19 vaccine is the funding. The UK Government funded trials to get them up and running quickly.

The Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) and Medicines Research Authority have sped up the process of approval – things like administrative paperwork that used to take months is now being done in days. This is what’s brought down the time for delivery of the clinical trials.

Processes have been streamlined and run in parallel. The length of the trials themselves has not been shortened, and the usual safety measures remain in place and high standards must still be met.

It has also been enabled by new technology, including the ability to rapidly manufacture vaccines. And supply – the vaccine is being produced already so that as soon as it’s known to be safe and effective it can be made available.

What happens if I experience side effects/adverse or unexpected events, how do I report it?
Vaccines are very safe. As with all medicines, side effects can occur after getting a vaccine. However, these are usually very minor and of short duration, such as a sore arm or a mild fever. An uncommon side effect is swelling of the local glands. More serious side effects are possible, but extremely rare. Tests have been done in thousands of adults to ensure the vaccine is safe.

At the point of vaccination, you will receive information about how to report any adverse events. It is essential that any events are reported and investigated. The safety of patients/ recipients is paramount.

What’s in the vaccines? Will they have any ingredients which are unsuitable for some religious groups, vegans or people with allergies?
Patient leaflets explaining the different vaccines and ingredients will be developed and information made available to people prior to vaccination so they can make an informed decision.

The Pfizer vaccine does not contain any meat derivatives or porcine products.

The British Islamic Medical Association has released a position statement recommending the AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine for the Muslim community. You can read it here.

Any person with a history of anaphylaxis to any component of the vaccine being offered should not receive it. A second dose of the same vaccine should not be given to those who have experienced anaphylaxis to the first dose of it.

The Pfizer BioNTech vaccine contains polyethylene glycol (PEG), which is from a group of known allergens commonly found in medicines and also in household goods and cosmetics. Known allergy to PEG is extremely rare but people with this allergy should not receive the Pfizer BioNTech vaccine. Patients with undiagnosed PEG allergy may have a history of unexplained anaphylaxis or of anaphylaxis to multiple classes of drugs. The AstraZeneca vaccine does not contain PEG and is a suitable alternative.

What about treatments, are there effective ways to treat COVID-19?
There are some treatments that have been proven to make a difference, for example antiviral drug remdesivir can reduce the length of illness. Two steroid drugs, dexamethasone and hydrocortisone, have been shown to save lives but only in people who are seriously ill in hospital.

However, it is best not to get the illness at all, rather than get it and treat it. A vaccine can help stop you getting it, lessen the impact of the disease and slow it spreading. This will help stop others getting it and passing it on.

COVID-19 vaccination scams

We are aware that fraudulent text and email messages are being send to patients about COVID-19 vaccinations.

It's important to be on your guard, as new scams emerge regularly.

People are receiving a text or email notification of their ‘vaccination appointment’ and are being asked to confirm it by clicking on a link.

This looks very similar to the genuine texts being sent to patients to arrange their appointments at the GP led vaccination services.

Please follow the advice below.

  • The COVID-19 vaccination is ONLY available from the NHS and it is FREE – you will never be asked to pay for it or give your bank details.
  • If you receive a call you believe to be fraudulent, hang up.
  • If you receive a text or email that you believe to be fraudulent please delete it. Please be assured that if you don’t respond because you are worried and it is a genuine text or email, you will remain on the vaccination list and be contacted again
  • If you believe you have been the victim of fraud or identity theft you should report this directly to Action Fraud on 0300 123 2040. Where the victim is vulnerable, report it to Sussex Police online or by calling 101.

Guidance on official NHS texts

  • An official NHS text message from your GP practice or the organisation arranging the appointments for your GP practice such as the local GP Federation will include their details such as the name of the Practice, group of Practices or the name of the Federation working on their behalf. It may also include details of the vaccination centre. Scam text messages and emails usually don’t include his information
  • An official NHS text message from the national booking system will be a reminder text so will include details of your booked appointment include date, time and location

If you have any further concerns about something you have received please contact the Sussex COVID-19 vaccination programme team on sxccg.vaccineenquiries@nhs.net
