With the majority of the population vaccinated against COVID-19 and take up dwindling over time, the Riverside Vaccination Centre will now only open 2 days a week – and is currently completely closed.

Hampshire, Southampton and Isle of Wight Clinical Commissioning Group has confirmed that as well as a change in opening times, the centre is completely closed until Sunday 26th June and is therefore not currently accepting appointments or walk-ins for vaccination.

Moving forward, appointments through the National Booking System and walk-ins will be available at Riverside on Fridays (for those 12+) and Sunday (for those 5-11).
