COVID-19 vaccinations

The NHS will contact you when its your turn.

The coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccines are safe and effective and give you the best protection against COVID-19.

Some people, including those aged 50 years or over, those at higher risk or who are pregnant, and frontline health and social care workers, will be offered a seasonal booster (autumn booster).

Anyone invited to take up both their autumn booster and flu jab is strongly encouraged to give you maximum protection this winter.

St. Mary’s Vaccination Hub on the St. Mary’s Hospital site is offering the COVID-19 autumn booster by appointment only. The Hub does not offer a walk-in service. 

Appointments are booked through the National Booking Service or find your nearest walk-in site offering jabs for your chosen age group.


If you are unable to see a suitable appointment time, more slots across the Island are being released regularly, so please keep checking back.


The NHS will notify you when you are eligible to have a COVID-19 booster and your GP surgery may be in touch to invite you for your COVID and/or flu vaccine in the coming weeks.


A number of pharmacies on the Island will also be offering the booster and there will be local vaccination sessions held in various towns and villages. These will be advertised in the local area.

Please do not contact St Mary’s Vaccination Hub or St. Mary’s Hospital direct about COVID-19 vaccinations or flu vaccinations.


If you booked your appointment through the National Booking Service and need to change it, please visit the website again or call 119 between 8am and 8pm. Calls to 119 are free from mobiles and landlines. They can provide support in over 200 languages.


You can also contact the Hampshire and Isle of Wight COVID-19 Vaccination Helpline if you need help finding your nearest clinics, getting information in other languages such as Polish, Arabic, Chinese, Bengali and more, as well as the latest information on eligibility.  You can contact the helpline on 0300 561 0018 from 9am to 5pm, Monday to Friday, and 9am to 1pm at weekends.


For people that have booked appointments, the St. Mary’s Vaccination Hub is located in the South Block building, opposite the Duck Pond. Accessible parking is available to the rear of the building which can be accessed from the Laidlaw entrance.
