A proposed scheme to offer university students walk-in Covid vaccinations has been halted on its second day after too many people reportedly turned up.
Bournemouth University said it was told “all students” could queue for jabs at Bournemouth International Centre for seven days, beginning on Tuesday.
On Wednesday, hundreds turned up on a long queue for up to eight hours, while others were turned away.
Dorset Healthcare NHS Trust said its offer was intended for priority groups.
On Tuesday, the university informed “all BU students over the age of 18” they could attend walk-in vaccinations from 18 to 24 May.
But on Wednesday afternoon, the institution on its Facebook page said: “Due to the high numbers, unfortunately no further student slots are available for the time being.”
