A new walk-in Covid-19 vaccination clinic has opened in Bilston.

The clinic, at Church Street Surgery, will offer first, second and booster jabs without an appointment from 1.30pm to 6pm on Wednesdays and from 10am to 4pm on Saturdays. People can also book an appointment via Book or manage a coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccination or by calling 119. Anyone aged 12 and over is welcome, though children must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. 

The surgery is one of a number of clinics operating throughout Wolverhampton offering life-saving Covid-19 vaccinations. For a full list, please visit Find a walk-in coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccination site

Councillor Jasbir Jaspal, the City of Wolverhampton Council's Cabinet Member for Public Health and Wellbeing, said: "We are pleased to have worked with the Black Country and West Birmingham Clinical Commissioning Group and Health & Beyond to open this new clinic in the heart of Bilston, making it even more convenient for local residents to grab their Covid-19 jabs.

"Vaccines provide strong protection against serious illness from Covid-19 and will help keep you and your loved ones safe so please remember, if you're due a vaccination and you haven't yet had it – whether it’s your first, second or your booster – it's not too late."

Sally Roberts, Chief Nursing Officer for NHS Black Country and West Birmingham Clinical Commissioning Group, said: “Our new site at Church Street Surgery provides much needed extra capacity for vaccinating people who live in Bilston and surrounding areas. 

“It has been a monumental effort to get the clinic set up so quickly and I’d like to thank everyone involved including our local healthcare partners and the City of Wolverhampton Council.  

“Getting the vaccine is the best way to protect yourself, your friends and your family, and I would encourage anyone due a dose to come and pay us a visit as soon as possible.”

There were 234.1 new cases of Covid-19 per 100,000 people in Wolverhampton over the last seven days. That means 616 people tested positive for the virus in that same period – though the true number of cases will likely be higher.
