A series of pop-up Covid-19 vaccination clinics will be taking place over the next few weeks, making it even easier for people to get their life-saving jabs.

First, second and booster vaccinations will be available at the clinics, operated in partnership with Central Health and St John Ambulance, which are taking place at:

  • Queen Square, Wolverhampton, Friday and Saturday, 29 and 30 July, 5pm to 10pm
  • Bilal Mosque, Newhampton Road West, Monday 1 August to Sunday 14 August, 10am to 4pm
  • Molineux Stadium, Monday 15 August to Sunday 21 August, 10am to 4pm
  • Bilston Market, Monday 22 August to Friday 2 September, 9am to 3pm
  • Queen Square, Wolverhampton, Friday and Saturday, 26 and 27 August, 5pm to 10pm
  • Phoenix Park, Blakenhall, Saturday 3 September to Sunday 11 September, 10am to 4pm
  • Whitmore Reans Library, Avion Centre, Monday 12 September to Sunday 18 September, 10am to 4pm

The pop-up clinics are open to anyone aged 18 and over, and no appointment is necessary.

Data released on Friday by the Office for National Statistics showed that a total of 3,760,200 people in private households in the UK were estimated to have had coronavirus in the week to 14 July – up from 3,498,700 people the previous week.

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 can see that in the latest data, because while infection rates are very high at the current time, the number of people falling seriously ill or dying with Covid-19 thankfully remains low – and that's primarily because of the impact of the vaccine.

"We are working closely with our health partners to make it as easy as possible for people to get their jabs when they want them, and so we are pleased to be offering these pop-up clinics over the next couple of months which is making vaccinations available in the heart of our communities.

"We don’t want Covid-19 to ruin people’s summer so, if you haven't already had your first or second jab, or your booster, please get it as soon as possible. Remember that getting your booster when it is due is particularly important as the effectiveness of the vaccine wanes after time."

Michelle Dyoss, Director of Central Health, said: "We have been working with the City of Wolverhampton Council since December 2021 vaccinating vulnerable people and those in areas with low vaccination uptake who may not be able to travel to other vaccination centres. 

"We are proud and happy to be working alongside St John Ambulance to provide pop-up vaccination clinics across the city during the summer months, ensuring residents are protected against coronavirus."

The pop-up clinics are operating alongside regular walk-in Covid-19 vaccination clinics, including those offering vaccinations for people aged five and over. For details of these clinics, please visit NHS.  Appointments can be booked at NHS or by calling 119.
