Visitors to Bilston Market still have time to get their Covid-19 vaccine at a special pop up clinic which is open all this week.

The clinic, which arrived at Market Way last week, is open from 9am to 3pm from today (Tuesday 30 August) until Thursday (1 September) and from 8.30am to 12pm on Friday (2 September).

Pop up clinics will also be operating at the Bilal Mosque, Newhampton Road West, on Friday (2 September) from 1 to 4pm, and at the car park at Phoenix Park, Blakenhall, from Saturday 3 September to Friday 9 September, and again on Sunday 11 September, from 10am to 4pm each day. 

The clinics offer first, second and booster jabs to anyone aged 18 and over and no appointment is necessary. They are the latest in a series of pop up clinics operating throughout the summer in partnership with Central Health and St John Ambulance.

Councillor Jasbir Jaspal, the City of Wolverhampton Council's Cabinet Member for Public Health and Wellbeing, said: "Vaccination is the best protection people can get against Covid-19.

"We are working closely with our health partners to make it as easy as possible for people to get their Covid-19 jab when they want it. We are pleased to be offering a series of pop up clinics, with the latest at Bilston Market proving to be very popular with customers taking the opportunity to get their vaccination as they pick up their shopping.

"If you haven't already had your first or second jab or your booster and they are now due, please get down to either one of the pop up clinics or one of the regular clinics. Remember that getting your booster when it is due is particularly important as the effectiveness of the vaccine lessens after time."

The pop up clinics are operating alongside regular walk in Covid-19 vaccination clinics, including those offering vaccinations for people aged 5 and over.
