With latest estimates suggesting one in 30 people in Wolverhampton had Covid-19 in the week ending 11 October, residents are being encouraged to get their vaccination as soon as it is due.

Covid-19 vaccination clinics are operating throughout Wolverhampton again this week, offering first, second and booster doses.

They include regular sites, such as the one at the Guru Nanak Sikh Gurdwara open to people aged 18 and over, and some for that are open to people aged 5 and over, including those at the Mander Centre and Alfred Squire Health Centre. For details of all 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. 

Alternatively, anyone aged 18 or over can get a first, second or booster vaccination at the pop-up clinic run by the City of Wolverhampton Council, Central Health and St John Ambulance which returns to Bilston Market this week. It is open today (Monday 24 October) and again from Wednesday to Saturday (26 to 29 October), from 9am to 3pm each day.

The pop-up clinic is also available at Park Village Education Centre, Cannock Road, Low Hill, tomorrow (Tuesday 25 October) from 1 to 7pm, and this Saturday and Sunday (29 and 30 October) from 10am to 6pm.

Councillor Jasbir Jaspal, the City of Wolverhampton Council's Cabinet Member for Public Health and Wellbeing, said: "We are seeing Covid-19 infection rates increasing once again, with latest estimates suggesting that around one in 30 people in Wolverhampton had Covid-19 in the week ending 11 October.

"We have worked hard with our health partners to ensure people can get their Covid-19 vaccination where they want it, and when they want it – and, with plenty of clinics operating across Wolverhampton again this week, I would strongly urge people who are eligible for their vaccination, whether that’s their first, second or their booster, to get it as soon as they can."
