Spring booster COVID-19 vaccination

COVID-19 is more serious in older people and those with certain underlying health conditions.

For these reasons, people aged 75 years and over (by 30 June 2023), those in care homes, and people aged five years and over with a weakened immune system, are being offered a spring booster of the COVID-19 vaccine.

To book your booster appointment you can either visit the NHS website, use the NHS app or call 119.

If you haven’t had the first or second dose of the COVID-19 vaccine, book now to make sure you get both jabs before the offer ends for many people on 30 June. You’ll need to wait several weeks between doses.

Free life-saving workshops

Our West Sussex Fire & Rescue Service has launched a series of free Biker Down workshops, designed to help make the county’s roads safer.

Currently, nearly a quarter of all people killed and seriously injured on the road are riding a motorcycle – a stark figure as motorcycles only account for around 5% of vehicles on the road.

If you were first on the scene of an accident involving a biker, would you know what to do? If the answer is no, then our courses are for you.

Spring safety in the countryside

It’s the time of year when more of us get out and about and enjoy the countryside, so be aware of ticks.

Read tips on how to stay safe from ticks and more information about Lyme Disease, a bacterial infection that can be spread to humans by infected ticks.

Also be aware that contact with farm animals carries a risk of infection. Find more information on how to avoid becoming unwell when you visit a farm.
