Children aged 12-15 will need to attend a pop-up clinic with a parent or guardian, who will be asked to give consent.

Across Hampshire and Isle of Wight, more than 100 firefighters and support staff have volunteered to work as vaccinators, or to provide administrative support to the booster programme.

Vaccinations are also available at the Riverside Centre in Newport.
