COVID-19 vaccinations are available to thousands of teenagers this weekend.

Those aged 16 and 17 are eligible for one dose of the Covid-19 vaccine as part of the continued roll out of the vaccination programme.

Local vaccination services have been contacting 16 and 17 year olds who are registered with GP practices to invite them for appointments.

While some walk-in sessions have been taking place, more walk-in clinics have been set up for this age group this week in an attempt to make it easier for teenagers to receive their vaccination.

A Sussex Covid-19 vaccination programme spokesman said their teams have been working hard to call 16 and 17 year olds.

“There are more than ten sites which are open for walk in vaccinations – with Brighton, Chichester and Eastbourne open every single day.

“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.”

Free transport is also available to anyone who could not get to a vaccination site.
