The Covid-19 vaccination clinic at Aldersley Leisure Village will be closed for the next 2 weeks while the Cazoo Players Championship snooker tournament takes place.

During this time, a number of alternative vaccination clincs are continuing to operate in Wolverhampton, offering first, second and booster doses with walk-in and pre booked appointments available.

People aged 12 and over and some children aged 5 to 11 can get a first and second dose of the vaccine. Boosters are available to people aged 16 and over, and some children aged 12 to 15.

For a full list of local vaccination centres, please visit NHS. To book an appointment in advance, please visit NHS or call 119. 

The vaccination clinic at Aldersley Leisure Village is scheduled to reopen on Wednesday 16 February.

Councillor Jasbir Jaspal, the City of Wolverhampton Council's Cabinet Member for Public Health and Wellbeing, said: "It's important that you get your Covid-19 vaccinations as soon as you are able to and, while the clinic at Aldersley may be temporarily unavailable over the next couple of weeks, there are plenty of other locations in the city where you can grab your jab."

There were 1,030.6 new cases of Covid-19 per 100,000 people in Wolverhampton over the last 7 days. That means 2,710 people tested positive for the virus in that same period – though the true number of cases will likely be higher.
