Vaccinations for over 70s – Message from Rother District Council Chief Executive

To ensure everyone has been offered the opportunity to have the jab, people aged 70 and over who have not yet been vaccinated and who would like to, are now able to contact the national booking service directly to arrange an appointment.

People can go online – www.nhs.uk/covid-vaccination or call 119.

The national booking service shows appointments at the larger vaccination centres and at the select pharmacy led services and allows patients to choose a time slot and location that suits them.

GP led vaccination services are also continuing to work this week, and their teams are contacting people in the eligible groups directly over the coming days to offer appointments at these local services.

If you have an appointment both through the national booking service and then through your local GP led team, please cancel the one you do not want so the slot can be used by someone else. To cancel your appointment through the national booking service, simply visit Manage my appointments and you will be guided to be able to cancel.
