The Covid-19 vaccine bus is returning to All Saints this week, 8 weeks after its first visit.

The vaccine bus will be at ASAN Southside Car Park, off All Saints Road today (25 August) from 1pm until 6pm and then on Thursday 26 and Friday 27 August between 11am and 6pm.

Councillor Jasbir Jaspal, the City of Wolverhampton Council’s Cabinet Member for Public Health and Wellbeing, said: “This is the second time the Covid-19 vaccine bus has been in All Saints, 8 weeks after it was last there. This means that anyone who had their first dose of the coronavirus vaccine last time, can come back now and get their second dose, so that they are fully vaccinated and fully protected.

“Anyone over 18 who is still to have their first jab, or is due their second, can also come along to the vaccine bus. There is no need to book, and we have both Pfizer and AstraZeneca vaccines available.

“Although over 16s are now eligible to have their vaccine, the bus can only accept people aged 18 or older. However, there are lots of other walk in vaccination clinics open across the city where 16 and 17 year olds can get their jab.”

She added: “With infection rates high in Wolverhampton at present – nearly 1,000 people tested positive for the virus in the last week alone – I'd urge everyone to get vaccinated as soon as possible.”

The latest figures show there were 375.9 new cases of Covid-19 per 100,000 people in Wolverhampton over the last 7 days. That means 989 people in the city tested positive for the virus in that same period – though the true number of new cases will likely be higher.
