The latest figures show that almost 320,000 life saving Covid-19 vaccinations have now been administered across Wolverhampton.

To date, 169,258 people have had the first dose of their vaccine and 150,372 have had their second dose and are fully vaccinated, with the best level of protection from the deadly virus.

Councillor Jasbir Jaspal, the City of Wolverhampton Council’s Cabinet Member for Public Health and Wellbeing, said: “It’s great to see that more than 60% of residents have now been fully vaccinated, but there are many people still haven’t had theirs and who aren’t protected from the virus.

“As case rates have increased recently and are expected to do so further as pupils return to schools and colleges this week, we are seeing increasing numbers of people needing hospital treatment too. That’s why it’s so important that people get vaccinated as soon as they can.

Councillor Jaspal added: “Dozens of vaccination clinics are open each week across Wolverhampton, so it is easy to get a jab. First doses for under 18s, and first and second doses for anyone over 18, are available without needing to book, you just simply walk-in.”
