We at The Lighthouse Medical Practice are excited to announce that South Downs Health & Care (SDHC) will be giving our eligible patients both the flu vaccine and Covid-19 autumn booster vaccine this year. NHS England have advised that the vaccines should be given together and one appointment for both vaccinations makes this much simpler for you.
SDHC have been responsible for giving the Covid-19 vaccine to our patients since it was first available and we are grateful for their ongoing commitment, which allows us to focus on providing day-to-day medical care for patients.
Eligible patients will receive an invitation to book a vaccine appointment via SMS, with clinics being available from Tuesday, September 26th.
Those unable to book an appointment via SMS will be able to phone SDHC to book their appointment on 01323 402530 (please do not call the surgery). Please note that these combined appointments are exclusively available to patients at Lighthouse Medical Practice and will therefore be on specific days when other patients are not invited to the centre.
Please do not contact the surgery about your flu or Covid vaccines, as this prevents patients who need medical attention getting through to us quickly.
SDHC will be holding clinics at:
Hampden Park Health Centre, 12 Brodrick Close, Hampden Park, Eastbourne BN22 9NQ.
Eligible children and young people under the age of 18 will be vaccinated at The Lighthouse GP surgery and will receive a separate invite from the surgery.
