Large-scale vaccination centres trialled in Hampshire

Eligible people are able to walk-in for their coronavirus vaccination at four large-scale vaccination centres across Hampshire and the Isle of Wight.

For a trial period of seven days, walk-in appointments will be offered at Solent NHS Trust run centres including: Basingstoke Fire Station, St James’s Hospital in Portsmouth, The Riverside Centre in Newport on the Isle of Wight and Oakley Road in Millbrook, Southampton.

The walk-in service is being offered to people in line with recommendations from the JCVI: people age 64 and over; people who have received a letter from the government saying they are at high risk from coronavirus (clinically extremely vulnerable); and adults in receipt of Carer’s Allowance.

David Noyes, Chief Operating Officer at Solent NHS Trust, said: “We know that the vaccination programme is our way out of this pandemic. Opening the walk-in appointments at the four large-scale vaccination centres for this group of people will help us to vaccinate even more people with the highest need quicker. We are delighted to be able to offer this service for a trial period.

David continued: “Eligible people can now choose to either walk-in, or pre-book appointments by visiting www.nhs.uk/covid-vaccination, where they can choose a time slot and location that suits them, or they can call 119 free of charge, anytime between 7am and 11pm, seven days a week.”
