A spokeswoman for the Sussex COVID-19 Vaccination Programme confirmed more than 278,000 people have now been given the lifesaving jab.

She said: “We are on course to have offered the vaccination to everyone in the top four priority groups across Sussex by mid-February, in line with the national target.

“To date more than 278,000 people have received this vital protection across Sussex, and thousands more are receiving theirs every day this week thanks to the teams working across the larger vaccination centres, local vaccination services, home visiting teams, pharmacies and hospital hubs.”

Anyone who is eligible but has not yet heard about an appointment can use the national booking system to arrange their vaccine at a vaccination centre or pharmacy service, the spokeswoman added.

She said: “GP teams are following up with any of their patients they are yet to vaccinate.”
