My mother (who lives in Rye Harbour) will be 94 years old in April, and she has pulmonary fibrosis.
She is still able to get about and loves life although she gets very breathless and can’t walk far. She is shielding as her survival rate, if she contracted Covid-19, is zero. I can’t understand why she has not been invited for her vaccine yet.
No one wants to speak to you and I do understand the NHS can’t take all these calls, but I am wondering if this is a postcode lottery. She should be one of the first and yet we have heard nothing and don’t know where to go for help. I don’t know if you can help at all with this.
[Editor’s note: Apparently the vaccinations are being organised by the Chief Nursing Officer of the Sussex Community Foundation Trust headquartered in Lewes, but mainly active in Brighton, who have organised a vaccination centre in Etchingham in a community centre said to be a mile’s walk from the station (if you don’t have a car) which is supposed to open next Monday January 18].
