The closure comes as more than 100 new positive cases were confirmed on the Isle of Wight yesterday (Wednesday).

Meanwhile, today is the final day for the Riverside Vaccination Centre — for now.

The centre is closing after a successful programme that saw the centre and Island GPs give more than 200,000 Covid vaccines.
