Angela Anderson, Solent NHS Trust’s clinical director of Covid-19 vaccinations, said: ‘We want to ensure as many people in our communities as possible have access to the Covid-19 vaccine and our roving pop-up clinics are proving to be a very popular way for people to receive their first, second or booster vaccine.

‘The Covid-19 vaccine is the best way to protect yourself and your loved ones from becoming seriously ill and we know that the booster vaccine will give increased protection against the Omicron variant.’

Further clinics will take place on:
