More than one million people in Sussex have now had their second COVID-19 vaccination and have the highest level of protection against the virus.

This means that, according to the most recent government guidance they no longer need to self-isolate if they come into close contact with someone who has the virus.

However, as cases of COVID-19 are rising in Brighton and Hove, the NHS is calling on the remaining people who are not yet vaccinated, or have yet to get their second dose, to now come forward to prevent further spread.

The Brighton Centre is open for walk-in appointments every day

A spokesperson for the Sussex COVID-19 vaccination programme said: “We have made great progress in Brighton and Hove but there are still people who have yet to have either of their vaccinations. Having two doses of the COVID-19 vaccine means you are far less likely to catch the virus and less likely to pass it on.

“There are lots of benefits to being vaccinated, not only does it protect you and your family and friends, but also means you can continue to enjoy nightlife in the City and now, you won’t have to self-isolate if you do come into contact with someone who is positive.

“Now is the time to come forward. There are lots of sessions and walk in clinics where you can have your first dose this week. And whilst you must leave an eight week gap between your two vaccinations, if you had your first vaccination on or before July 5, it is now time for you to have your second jab.”
