Wolverhampton’s Covid-19 vaccine bus is returning to Phoenix Park tomorrow, 8 weeks after it was there last.

The bus will be in Phoenix Park car park, off Dudley Road in Blakenhall on Thursday 5 August between 1pm and 6pm and then from Friday 6 to Sunday 8 August between 11am and 6pm daily, with both Pfizer and AstraZeneca vaccines.

Anyone over the age of 18 can get the first or second dose of their lifesaving Covid-19 vaccine at the bus without needing to book an appointment, but there must be a gap of 8 weeks between doses.

It is 8 weeks since the bus was last in Phoenix Park, in early June, so anyone who had their first dose then is due their second one now.

Councillor Jasbir Jaspal, the City of Wolverhampton Council’s Cabinet Member for Public Health and Wellbeing, said: “It is 8 weeks since the vaccine bus was at Phoenix Park last, so anyone who had their first jab then is ready for their second one now in order to get the best protection from the virus. Those people, plus anyone else who is due their second dose, can get them at the bus in Phoenix Park this week, or at any of the other walk in clinics around the city.

“The vaccine bus is also offering first doses too, so anyone over the age of 18 who has not yet had their first dose, can come along as well.”

In addition to the vaccine bus at Phoenix Park, other walk in vaccination clinics are open across the city this week. For full details, including the types of vaccine available, please visit Walk in vaccinations.   

Covid-19 vaccinations are also available by appointment and can be booked online at Coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccines or by calling NHS 119.
