The vaccination programme is going extremely well – across Hampshire and Isle of Wight we have delivered more than two million vaccinations.
On the Isle of Wight we have delivered more than 183,000 doses, and to help the vaccination drive further, we are now offering COVID-19 walk-in vaccination clinics.
This means anyone aged 18 and over can go to a walk-in clinic, without needing to book an appointment, and get their first dose. This week and next, you can go to:
Michele Legg, Clinical Director for Hampshire, Southampton and Isle of Wight Clinical Commissioning Group, said: “Having two doses of the vaccine helps protect you and those around you, so I urge you to get vaccinated.
“A recent study from PHE found that vaccine effectiveness against the Delta variant first identified in India, is similar after two doses when compared to the Alpha variant first identified in Kent.
“The vaccines offered have been tested and are safe for use and offer protection against different variants.”
When attending a walk-in clinic, please remember you may have to queue. Please do wear your face mask and observe social distancing guidelines as outlined by the centre you are visiting.
If you get an invitation letter or text from the National Booking Service or your GP practice, then you can still book a timeslot at one of our vaccination centres, if that is more convenient for you.
You can make an appointment by calling 119, visiting NHS.uk or responding to your GP practice invitation.
