Raft of pop-up clinics offer COVID-19 vaccinations this weekend

POP-UP clinics are being held across Hampshire and Isle of Wight this weekend as health and care teams support even more people to get their COVID-19 jab.

Churches, universities, community centres and walk-in clinics provided by GP practices are just some of the venues supporting the programme in our communities by holding walk-in clinics in the coming days.

These pop-up clinics are being held in addition to vaccines being offered at mass vaccination sites at St James’s Hospital, Portsmouth, Oakley Road in Southampton and Riverside on the Isle of Wight. More appointments are also regularly added to the National Booking Service.

Dr Matt Nisbet, GP and Clinical Lead for the Hampshire and Isle of Wight COVID-19 Vaccination Programme, said: “A range of walk-in COVID-19 vaccination clinics are being held across Hampshire and Isle of Wight in the coming days and appointments continue to be added to the National Booking Service.

“The offer is not time-limited so anyone invited can have the vaccine – even if they have previously declined and changed their mind. I strongly encourage anyone who has not yet taken up the offer of a vaccine to do so as soon as possible.”
