Three vaccination centres in Worcestershire are now open for walk in appointments.
The vaccination clinics at the Three Counties Showground, Malvern, WR13 6NW, Artrix, Bromsgrove, B60 1GN and St Peter’s Baptist Church, Worcester, WR5 3TZ are now accepting walk-in as well as booked appointments.
People aged 18 and over do not need to book ahead to get a COVID-19 vaccination. You don't need to be registered with a GP to access the vaccination, simply turn up to receive your jab.
Those who have not received a first dose of a COVID-19 vaccination are being particularly encouraged to attend this walk-in clinic.
Opening hours are as follows
Malvern: Monday to Friday 8am to 5pm and Saturday 8am to 1.30pm throughout July (AstraZeneca and Moderna vaccinations available)
Bromsgrove: Monday to Saturday 8am to 7.30pm and Sunday 8am-1.30pm throughout July (AstraZeneca and Pfizer vaccinations available)
Worcester: Monday to Saturday 8am to 7pm throughout July (AstraZeneca and Moderna vaccinations available)
Public Health in Worcestershire, and NHS Herefordshire and Worcestershire Clinical Commissioning Group are working together to make it easier and more convenient for people to get vaccinated.
Councillor Karen May, Cabinet Member for Health and Wellbeing, said: “Many of our Worcestershire residents have taken up the offer of a vaccine so far and I would like to thank everyone who has already done so.
“These walk-in clinics are now making it much easier for more people to come forward to get vaccinated and we would especially like to encourage our younger residents to take this opportunity to get a jab.”
Simon Trickett, Chief Executive Officer for NHS Herefordshire and Worcestershire CCG added: “We are now able to offer vaccinations to people over 18 without a prior appointment making it even easier to get your jab. Vaccination is so important, not only because it protects the person receiving the vaccine, but it also helps to protect loved ones and the community. We hope those people who have not come forward yet, will find this more convenient to get their first COVID-19 vaccination.”
If you are unable to attend this clinic you can find out where you can get your vaccination on the NHS website.
