We have visited over 700 residents of care and nursing homes in Bexhill and they have all had their first dose of vaccine.
When you arrive for your appointment, please note the following.
- You must wear a face covering.
- You must Social Distance at all times.
- Please do not arrive early for your appointment, this will increase the queue times.
- Come alone if you are able to. Only one carer may accompany you.
- If you develop any symptoms of Covid, please do not attend your appointment.
- Be prepared to queue outside. There will be chairs for those who cannot stand for long.
- Most importantly, please keep your spirits high! This is new to all of us and we are dealing with a very delicate vaccine and have to handle with care. There may be delays to your appointment time, especially when we are transporting the vaccine to the clinic rooms. The staff are working hard to get this rolled out as smoothly as possible.
We thank you very much for your support, we look forward to getting all patients who want the vaccine completed as soon as we are able to.
