Update 16th December – no Booster Bus tomorrow (17th)

Healthwatch Portsmouth has just spotted on the Portsmouth City Council Facebook page a message posted at 5.30pm saying

“The vaccine booster bus will NOT be in Portsmouth on Friday 17 December as it isn’t suitable for providing large volumes of vaccinations outdoors in such cold weather. Apologies for any disappointment”



The COVID Booster Vaccination Bus has been cancelled for today 10th December 2021. 

A social media announcement has just been displayed on the Portsmouth City Council website which states that due to adverse weather forecasts for the weekend the Hampshire and Isle of Wight Integrated Care System took the decision to cancel the outdoor COVID-19 vaccinations model for this weekend.


Previously we were informed that the COVID Booster Vaccination Bus would be returning to Portsmouth on Fridays 10th and 17th December after its very successful visit to Guildhall Square on Friday 3rd December 2021.

People aged 40 and over can visit the bus to receive a COVID booster vaccination, no appointment necessary !   When offering jabs on Friday 3rd December the NHS had capacity to see 250 people.

More details will be available here when Healthwatch Portsmouth learn of the timings and location of the Booster Bus for these extra dates this month
