Seaford residents have again been contacting Cllr Carolyn Lambert, Liberal Democrat County Councillor for Seaford South about the lack of a local vaccination centre. Cllr Lambert explains:
“Older and more vulnerable residents simply cannot travel to vaccination centres in Eastbourne, Brighton, Hove and Haywards Heath for their jabs which is what they are being offered. This was abundantly clear during the pandemic when I called on the government and the MP to set up a local centre. It is more than disappointing that the Conservative government have once again not bothered to make any provision for these residents, some of whom are caring for frail partners who cannot be left and who therefore need home vaccinations.
"I simply cannot understand why the biggest town in Lewes District is once again being let down not just by the government but by the MP who is apparently perfectly content with the provision on offer.
There needs to be alternative local provision either by the surgeries or by the local pharmacies so that residents get the service they both need and deserve. Life is hard enough for some people without this added pressure and worry”.
