To make it as easy for people to have their lifesaving Covid-19 vaccination, most of the clinics are open to anyone aged 16 or over, with a few for those aged 18+. The clinics all offer first and second doses, without needing to book ahead. All have the Pfizer vaccine and most have AstraZeneca too.
This week’s walk in clinics include Mayfield Medical Practice, Woodcross Health Centre, Aldersley Leisure Village, Springdale Methodist Church and more.
Additionally, the vaccine bus will be returning to All Saints Community Centre, All Saints Road, later this week, 8 weeks after it was there last. The bus will be open on Wednesday 25 August from 1pm until 6pm and then on Thursday 26 and Friday 27 August from 11am until 6pm.
Councillor Jasbir Jaspal, the City of Wolverhampton Council’s Cabinet Member for Public Health and Wellbeing, said: “With 16 and 17 year olds now eligible to get their jab, most of the walk in clinics across the city are now open to anyone aged 16 plus.
“If you haven’t had your first vaccination yet, or if you’re over 18 and are due your second dose, it’s important that you do so as soon as possible, to protect yourself and others around you.
“Having the vaccine bus back in All Saints 8 weeks after it was there last means it’s the perfect time for anyone who had their first dose then to have their second dose now.
“All of the clinics have Pfizer vaccines available for anyone aged 16 to 39 and most of the clinics have AstraZeneca too, for people over 40 having their first or second doses.”
Details of the latest clinics, including times and vaccine types available, can be found at Walk in vaccinations and information is posted daily on social media channels. Please note, clinics are subject to change, so check the website for latest details.
Latest figures show there were 378.6 new cases of Covid-19 per 100,000 people in Wolverhampton over the last 7 days. That means 996 people in the city tested positive for the virus in that same period – though the true number of new cases will likely be higher.
