Covid pop-up vaccination clinic in Romsey Rapids

A POP-up vaccination clinic opened to the community today.

Residents will be able to visit Romsey Rapid to get their jab until 6pm tonight.

The clinic, run by Solent NHS Trust, aims to target people in the community who might not have been able to make it to a larger site.

Speaking to a Daily Echo reporter on the site, matron Julie Sizer explained that the team was reaching out to the community to try and get people to get vaccinated.

“It’s really important that everyone gets vaccinated, as many people as possible, so that we can try to get out of this pandemic,” she added.
