Why have we used Etchingham?

Home We have had a large number of questions about why the vaccines can’t be done at Northiam. The regulations from NHS England state that all Covid vaccinations must be given in a locality based vaccination centre which for us is Rother, which stretches from Burwash to Rye. People may have seen vaccines being given from GP surgeries on the news these tend to be larger GP practices which will be acting as the vaccination centre for their locality. We are still hoping the regulations will change to allow the vaccine to be given at individual general practice level but there is no certainty that this will happen and we would therefore strongly encourage everyone to attend Etchingham if they are offered an appointment there.
