LGBTQ+ & not had your vaccine yet?

What you waiting for?

Getting vaccinated not only protects you and your family but also protects the wider communities across the UK and world. Help stop the spread of Covid, get yourself fully vaccinated in the conformable Queer friendly space of the Rainbow Hub up on  St James St.

The Rainbow Hub is hosting their second walk in jab session for LGBTQ+  communties in the city, so if you’re in town and need your first jab or second (and it’s 8 weeks since you had your first) then pop in and get it sorted.

10.30-14.30 – Rainbow Hub, St James’s Street, Brighton, BN2 1TP. For all adults, 1st and 2nd doses (2nd dose after 8 weeks), Pfizer

You can just walk in or if you would prefer to book call  0300 303 8060.

Very friendly NHS vaccine staff will be there if you have any questions about the vaccines, along with the charming vaunters from the Rainbow Hub providing a safe space for LGBTQ+ people.

The Sussex COVID-19 Vaccination programme is offering more walk-in vaccinations over the next few weeks. 75% of people in Brighton have had their first dose, but rates are lower for those aged 25-34 year olds (60%)

Alister Hill, Director of Public Health in Brighton & Hove said


If you, or anyone you know, hasn’t started to get vaccinated yet, please don’t put it off any longer.

Rates of Covid-19 infection in our city went up again this week and they remain much too high for comfort. Added to that, we still have high numbers of unvaccinated adults in our community.

This week we learned the great news that nine in ten of the UK adult population have had their first jab and three in four are fully vaccinated after having both doses. But here in Brighton & Hove we’ve got some catching up to do.

So far, only 75% of adults in Brighton & Hove has had their first vaccine dose. Take-up is especially low among 25 to 34 year olds at just 60%

With Covid circulating so widely among us we really must protect ourselves and each other. It’s important that everyone takes up the vaccine offer, especially because so many more of us are mixing socially again in our homes and venues across the city.  ”
