COVID-19 Vaccination update
The Arch team are actively engaged in preparation for the Covid-19 vaccine roll-out. We are working closely with the other surgeries in central and East Brighton to ensure that when the opportunity arises our patients will be able to receive the vaccine. We are looking forward to enabling you to feel safe in the company of others again.
Delivering the Pfizer vaccine is complex as it needs to be stored at very cold temperatures and moved carefully, so large hospitals have been the first sites across the country to receive the vaccine. The Oxford/Astra Zeneca vaccine will be available very soon in some settings and we expect use of this vaccine to be much more straightforward.
The Government has said that vaccines should first be given to care home residents and staff, people aged over 80, and health and care workers, before being rolled out to the rest of the population in order of age and risk.
We will be in touch with you when it’s your turn to have the vaccine. Please act on your invite when it comes in, and make sure to attend your appointment. If you know anyone who isn’t registered with a GP, please encourage them to register, as this is how we will reach everyone eligible for a Covid-19 vaccination.
Visit the NHS Sussex website for more information on the COVID-19 vaccination programme across Sussex. To give you an idea of how the vaccination will be phased, the graph below (from the BBC) illustrates the priority groups for the vaccination, and the numbers of people in each group.
COVID-19 Response trailer
We are incredibly proud to have worked together with Brighton and Hove City Council and St Mungos during COVID-19 to offer over 400 homeless people accommodation. Here is the trailer for our film showing the inspiring work that has taken place.
