Matt Nisbet, GP and Clinical Lead of the Covid-19 Vaccination Programme, said: “Health and care teams have worked tirelessly to rapidly increase the availability of Covid-19 vaccines across Hampshire and Isle of Wight in recent weeks.

“We are hugely grateful to all of our colleagues, partners and volunteers for their efforts in helping to ensure as many people as possible are protected against the virus.

“Latest evidence shows that two vaccines to do not give us the protection we need from Omicron due to the speed at which the variant spreads, However a booster can restore protection to around 75%, so I strongly encourage everyone eligible to take up the offer of a booster as soon as possible.”
