The NHS in West Sussex has delivered a significant increase in vaccinations, just four days after the Prime Minister announced the acceleration of the vaccination programme.
On Sunday, it was announced that from this week all adults would be eligible for a booster vaccination when they reach 3 months from the date of their second.
It was also announced that all eligible adults would be offered a booster by the end of December.
Since then health and care partners have been working to increase the number of appointments available on a daily basis, extend opening hours and offer pop up vaccination services to reach out to communities.
More than 10,000 new appointments have already been released and booked this week across Sussex, and more appointments are being added to the National Booking System website and 119 every day.
On Wednesday 20,000 people in Sussex had a vaccination in one single day.
It comes after the NHS in Sussex called on the public yesterday to play their part to Keep Sussex Safe and come forward for their vaccination, as well as using services appropriately as NHS services work to focus on this effort.
