The combined efforts of the eight Bognor Regis practices to deliver the COVID vaccinations to those over 50 years old and those with significant underlying health conditions will be drawing to a close next week. By that time our teams will have delivered over 60,000 vaccinations to our patients – this includes care homes, housebound patients and approximately 55,000 given in the local vaccination centre.
This project has involved large scale organisation and the assistance of many people. We say a huge thank you to all of those involved in the booking team, the organisation of the programme, the administrative and clinical staffing involved in running the centre and delivering vaccinations. We don’t forget the large team of volunteers who have given up hours of their time for free to help ensure that the centre has run as smoothly as possible.
Over 30’s and those with underlying health conditions:
If you have received a national vaccination letter, or are in an eligible cohort please call 119 to book your vaccination, or book online.
Should you have problems booking via the national service or have any queries about the Covid-19 Vaccination programme please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. Alternatively you can phone 0800 433 4545 (open 9am – 4pm, Monday to Friday, not including bank holidays)
The local vaccination centre will be reopening from 7th June for those under 50, who will contact you by text message or phone call in addition to being able to book by 119 and online.
Please do not call the surgery as we will not be able to assist with booking vaccination appointments.
Proof of Vaccination:
You can get proof of your vaccination by downloading the NHS app, or by calling 119 who can arrange a letter to be sent to you. The latest government guidance for obtaining proof of vaccination is available here.
