The pop-up Covid-19 clinic has arrived at the home of Wolverhampton Wanderers this week, making it even easier for local residents to get their life-saving jabs. It is offering first, second and booster vaccinations at Molineux Stadium from 10am-4pm every day until Sunday 21 August. The clinic is open to anyone aged 18 and over; no appointment is necessary.
Dr Rob Chakraverty, Head of Performance and Medicine at Wolverhampton Wanderers FC, said: “We are delighted that we are able to contribute to the health of the nation in this small but very important way, by opening up the Molineux for Covid-19 vaccinations.” The clinic is part of a series of pop-ups operating throughout August and September in partnership with Central Health and St John Ambulance.
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 are working closely with our health partners to make it as easy as possible for people to get their Covid-19 jab when they want them, and so we are pleased to be offering a series of pop-up clinics over the school holidays and into September to offer vaccinations in convenient locations.
"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, and they are now due, please get down to Molineux Stadium or one of our regular clinics this week. Remember that getting your booster when it is due is particularly important as the effectiveness of the vaccine lessens after time."
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 https://bit.ly/3HmGV5a. Appointments can be booked at https://bit.ly/3dtsler or by calling 119.
