Coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccine
Your COVID-19 vaccine – information for people living in Essex and Suffolk
The NHS is vaccinating people in Essex and Suffolk against coronavirus as part of the biggest immunisation programme in NHS history.
The vaccination programme is well underway and is being ramped up following the approval and roll out of the Oxford/AstraZenaca vaccine.
Health and care staff are pulling out all the stops to open as many centres as possible as supplies become available. We now have five hospital vaccination hubs, more than 40 GP-led services and new vaccination centres opening shortly.
On Monday (18 January), the Lodge at Wickford in Essex is one of ten new large-scale vaccination centres opening this week – more than one million people aged 80 and over have now been invited to book their coronavirus jab as the NHS accelerates the immunisation programme, with a further 380,000 receiving their letters this weekend (16/17 January).
People aged 80 or over living up to a 45-minute drive from the centre are being written to with the option of choosing to arrange a vaccination there through the new national booking service. Alternatively people can choose to wait to be contacted shortly by their local GP-led vaccination service. More information can be found on the NHS England and NHS Improvement website.
There are more than 1,000 vaccination sites nationally with the programme rapidly accelerating.
All information on Essex and Suffolk will be posted on this page as the new centres go live.
