Walk in vaccinations

All adults remain eligible to have for life saving vaccinations. 

Walk in services are available. Just turn up, and walk in for your first vaccination! No appointment necessary!

Pop-up and mobile vaccination sessions are taking place in various locations across the county to deliver first vaccinations.

Second jabs are also available at some of the walk-ins, if it has been at least eight weeks since the first dose (please note: your second dose must be the same vaccine as your first). 

Getting your vaccine is easy, just bring one form of ID (photo ID not required) and your NHS number, if you know it. Dates and times are subject to change at short notice, so do double check by clicking the link below.

COVID cases in our city.

Brighton & Hove continues to have one of the highest case rates in the South East of England, and a similar infection rate to that of England as a whole.

In the 7 days up to 23 July (based on data published on 28 July) we had 1,166 confirmed new COVID-19 cases in Brighton & Hove – down from 1,584 in the previous week.

This is:

  • a 26% decrease on the previous week
  • equivalent to a weekly rate of 400.8 per 100,000 residents – down from 544.5 per 100,000 in the previous week
  • higher than the south east which was 323.3 per 100,000
  • almost equal to the rate for England, which was 401.4 per 100,000 

What this means for Brighton & Hove

For the first week since early May we have seen a reduction in confirmed cases of COVID-19 in our city.

Although numbers have come down this week, the rate of infection is still very high compared with earlier in the year. The virus is spreading in all age groups, not just young people.

Unfortunately, there are now in-patients with COVID-19 in our local hospital, although the numbers are lower than earlier in the pandemic thanks to the effectiveness of the vaccines.

Our local vaccination programme has delivered a first vaccine dose to nearly 3 quarters of our residents.

However almost half of adults in Brighton & Hove are not yet fully vaccinated with 2 doses. You need the full course of 2 jabs for full protection.

There are still too many unprotected people in our community who are at risk of serious illness if they become infected.

Everyone who can be vaccinated, but have not yet done so, should get their first dose as soon as possible.

And we urge everyone who has already had their first jab to arrange to get their second dose at 8 weeks for maximum protection.
