Everyone over 40 is now eligible for the vaccination. Unpaid carers and anyone with a serious long term health issue can also book by calling 0300 303 8060.

The mobile vaccination ambulance will be outside St Peter's Church again this weekend

Anyone who has already booked to have their vaccination somewhere else but would prefer to go to the mobile service should make sure they cancel the other appointment so that someone else can have the slot.

To book to get vaccinated at the Brighton Centre or Brighton Racecourse, visit Book a coronavirus vaccination - NHS (www.nhs.uk) or call 119.

A free transport service is also available to help people who do not have the means to travel to their vaccination appointment and need help to get there and back.

The booking service is available by phone on 0300 303 8060 from 10am to 1pm and 2pm to 5pm, Monday to Friday.
