Vaccination clinic at Baggies again this Friday and Saturday

 

‘Grab a jab’ is back at the Baggies this Friday (6 August), and Saturday (7 August) between 10am and 6pm.

West Bromwich Albion fans are being urged to ‘grab a jab’ at The Hawthorns, as the club continues to support the vaccination drive, after five successful clinic sessions already being held this summer. And it’s not just Albion fans who are welcome – ‘away fans’ and people not into football can go along to get vaccinated at The Hawthorns, or at several other locations around Sandwell if they are aged 18 or over.

Sandwell Council – in partnership with NHS colleagues and local community and faith organisations – is continuing with its programme of pop-up clinics giving residents the opportunity to get vaccinated.

Tuesday 10 August  7pm-9pm at Church of God Of Prophecy, Unit N, Park Lane, West Bromwich, B21 8LE (Pfizer only)

Thursday 12 August 11am-5pm at YMCA (West Brom Bid) – 38 Carters Green, West Bromwich, West Bromwich, B70 9LG (Pfizer only)

Details of clinics are available online at the Healthy Sandwell clinics webpage.

More clinics around the region are also available online via the NHS.

Remember:
• No appointment is necessary.
• No NHS number is needed.
• No need to be registered with a GP.
• No residential address is needed.
• Offering both first and second dose vaccines – remember to be bring your vaccine card if you’ve had your first vaccination.
• With Covid-19 cases high both in Sandwell and across the West Midlands region, being fully vaccinated is the best way of protecting yourself and others from becoming seriously ill.

Anyone aged 40 or over who needs their second dose of the AstraZeneca vaccine, can also go to Tipton Sports Academy, Wednesbury Oak Road, Tipton, Monday to Sunday from 8am-6pm. (First and second dose Pfizer and AstraZeneca available).

Please make sure it’s at least eight weeks since your first dose.

Dr Lisa McNally, Director of Public Health in Sandwell, is urging as many people as possible to get fully vaccinated.

“It’s great to be working with the Baggies again on this. 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.

“We’ve been pleased to see lots of people come forward for their vaccination at our recent ‘pop-up’ clinics, and it’s become really clear how effective the vaccination is in protecting people.

“Many people are also getting their jab because they want to make sure they’ll have no problems going abroad, or getting into nightclubs and events.”

More clinics will be announced over the coming days.
