Bromsgrove residents who are aged 18 and over, can grab their Covid jab at a walk-in clinic which is being set up at a family fun day event.

The walk-in clinic will be at the event, run by Bromsgrove District Housing Trust, at the Recreation Ground in Lyttleton Avenue from 12.30 - 2pm on Wednesday August 25th.

The clinic is being delivered by St John Ambulance, and will be offering first doses for anyone aged over 18 and second doses for those eligible who had their first dose at least 8 weeks prior. The clinic will be offering the Pfizer vaccine only so can only provide second doses for those who had the Pfizer vaccination initially.

All adults are now eligible to receive the vaccine, and this is a simple, convenient, and easy way to do so. Those who have not received a first dose of a COVID vaccination are particularly encouraged to attend this walk-in clinic.

BDHT’s Director of Housing and Communities Graeme Anderson, said: “Our family fun days are really well attended so we hope we are making it easier for those people who struggle to get to vaccination centres, for whatever reason, to get their jab.”

Bromsgrove District Council Leader, Cllr Karen May, said:“While we are the right side of Freedom Day now, we still need to remain vigilant and keep each other safe.

“This latest clinic is great to make grabbing a jab more accessible and I hope as many people as possible visit it – and enjoy the fun event too.”

The walk-in clinic is part of an ongoing initiative to give those who haven’t already had their first vaccination an opportunity to do so, as well as encouraging the take up of second doses. Booking prior to attending the clinic is not needed making it simple and easy to get a jab and it is not necessary to be registered with a GP to receive a vaccination.
