Walk in vaccination

Colleagues across UHSussex, along with patients and the public, can get their first, second or booster doses of a Covid-19 vaccine at walk in clinics, seven days a week, until 3 February thanks to the extension of our successful walk-in vaccination service.  

Anyone who needs a first, second or booster dose of a Covid vaccine can turn up without an appointment at dedicated clinics at Worthing, St Richard’s and the Royal Sussex County Hospitals in Brighton.

Running from 11am to 4pm each day until 3 February, the clinics are a collaboration between University Hospitals Sussex NHS Foundation Trust (UHSussex) and the Sussex Health and Care Partnership.

Dr Charlotte Hopkins, Chief Medical Officer at UHSussex said:

“We know vaccination is the best way of keeping ourselves, our patients, our loved ones and our colleagues safe from getting severely ill with Covid. We also know that finding the time to get vaccinated isn’t always as easy as it sounds.

“These walk in vaccination clinics provide the perfect opportunity for people across Sussex to turn up when it suits them and get their first, second or booster vaccines.

“I’m very grateful to the teams who are making this possible and to everyone who makes the decision to get vaccinated. Increasing the vaccination rate across Sussex will help us avoid hospital admissions due to Covid and reduce pressure on our services, helping us make sure we can provide the care people need, when they need it.”

The programme is a system-wide push to boost vaccination across Sussex. Already, 83% of adults across East and West Sussex and Brighton and Hove have had three doses of a Covid vaccine.
