Thousands of COVID vaccines are available over the coming days for 16 and 17 year olds across our communities.
16 and 17 year olds are now eligible for one dose of the COVID vaccine, as part of the continued roll out of the vaccination programme.
To date more than one in two of teenagers in this age group have received their vaccine, and we are calling for anyone who is yet to have it to come forward.
Local vaccination services have been contacting 16 and 17 year olds who are registered with GP practices to invite them for appointments, and some walk in sessions have been taking place.
But, this week many more walk in clinics have been set up for this age group to make it as easy as possible for teenagers to receive their vaccination.
With schools and colleges re-opening next week after the summer, we want as many 16 and 17 year olds to be protected before term starts, and so we encourage anyone who is in this age group and who hasn’t had it yet to come forward this week.
Every day in Brighton, at the former Top Shop store, Churchill Square, BN1 2RG, daily 8.30am to 7.00pm, using the Pfizer vaccine.
More walk in sessions for 16-17 year olds are being confirmed and will be added here.
