The Covid-19 vaccination pop up clinic is available at Bilston Market again this week, offering first, second and booster vaccinations to anyone aged 18 and over.

It is open today (Monday 7 November) and from Wednesday to Friday (9 to 11 November) between 9am to 3pm each day. No appointment is necessary and both the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines are available.

The pop up clinic is also operating at Park Village Education Centre, Cannock Road, Low Hill, every Saturday to Monday from 10am to 6pm, and on Tuesdays from 1pm to 7pm.

Following its stay at Bilston Market, the pop up will move to the car park of Wednesfield Library, Well Lane, where it will be open from 10am to 4pm every weekday – except Tuesdays – from next Monday (14 November) to Friday 25 November.

The pop up clinics, run by the City of Wolverhampton Council, Central Health and St John Ambulance, operate alongside a number of regular vaccination sites across the city, including clinics which offer vaccinations to children aged 5 and over. For details of these clinics, please visit Find a walk-in coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccination site. Appointments can be booked at Book or manage a coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccination or by calling 119. 

Councillor Jasbir Jaspal, the City of Wolverhampton Council's Cabinet Member for Public Health and Wellbeing, said: "As we move into the winter months, we are strongly advising residents to get their Covid-19 vaccinations when they are due, to give them added protection against the virus.

“We know that infection rates remain high, with latest estimates suggesting that up to one in 30 people in Wolverhampton had Covid-19 in recent weeks.

"Vaccination is the best protection people can give themselves against Covid-19, and please remember that getting your booster when it is due is particularly important as the effectiveness of the vaccine wanes after time."

Sally Roberts, Chief Nursing Officer for NHS Black Country Integrated Care Board, added: “Getting vaccinated helps you and the NHS, which is already facing extreme pressures in the run up to the very busy winter season. 
“So, if you’ve not had your first, second or your booster vaccination yet, it’s not too late. The offer of a vaccine is evergreen, whichever dose you are due.”
