If you had your first vaccine at Etchingham and have not got a second appointment booked please contact the surgery and we can advise you how this can be arranged.
Vaccinations will continue to be provided at the Etchingham site, however the surgery is no longer booking first vaccines for the Etchingham site, if you wish to book a first vaccine appointment please contact the national booking system online at https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/coronavirus-vaccination/book-coronavirus-vaccination/ or telephone 119
