Oxford/AstraZeneca Alternative Now Available at Riverside Vaccination Centre
Vaccination appointments are available for residents who are eligible at the Riverside Vaccination Centre in Newport on the Isle of Wight, including those who are aged 30 years and over.
Vaccinations continue to be offered in line with recommendations from the independent JCVI.
If you’re under 40, you’ll be offered a Pfizer appointment as the alternative vaccine to Oxford/AstraZeneca.
If you’re 40 or over, you’ll be asked if you’re pregnant to make sure you’re only shown appointments for the right vaccine for you.
