Offering both first and second dose vaccines – remember to bring your vaccine card, if you’ve had your first vaccination.
With Covid-19 cases rising in Sandwell and across the West Midlands region, being fully vaccinated Is the best way of protecting yourself and others from becoming seriously ill.
Dr Lisa McNally, Director of Public Health in Sandwell, is urging as many people as possible to get fully vaccinated.
“We’ve been pleased to see lots of people come forward for their vaccination at our recent ‘pop-up’ clinics.
“As well as wanting to protect their health, those getting vaccinated have also been making sure that they have no trouble going abroad on holiday this year. With media reports suggesting that many holiday destinations will require us to be fully vaccinated, as well as how vaccination may help us avoid self-isolating when we get home, it’s no surprise so many people are getting their jabs.
“Holding vaccine clinics in the community makes it easier than ever for people to get vaccinated. No appointments are needed – just turn up and we’ll make sure you get jabbed.”
More clinics will be announced over the coming days.
