Health chiefs have said that anyone wanting the latest covid-19 booster jab has their last chance this weekend.
The public health team at Brighton and Hove City Council said: “The covid-19 primary and autumn booster vaccinations are only available until Sunday 12 February for anyone who’s eligible.
“A primary booster is the third covid-19 vaccination for all those aged 16 and over.
“Autumn boosters are available for those aged 50 and over, at higher risk due to a health condition or those who care for people at risk.
“Make sure you’ve had all the covid-19 vaccines you’re eligible for so that you have the best possible protection against serious illness.”
