Walsall residents can still get their COVID-19 booster vaccines by visiting a pop-up vaccination clinic across Walsall without an appointment. 

The Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) recommended that the booster offer should end when the autumn booster campaign ends. Sunday 12 February marked the last day for booster vaccine appointments booked through the National Booking System. 

However, residents can still access COVID-19 booster vaccines (as well as 1st and 2nd doses and the flu vaccine) at pop-up vaccination clinics across the Borough until the end of March:

  • The Square, New Invention, Willenhall - every Wednesday from 10am - 2pm.
  • Walsall Town Centre (Lower Hall Lane near Primark) - Saturday 11 and 25 March, both from 9am - 1pm.
  • ASDA Car Park, Darlaston - Tuesday 7 and 21 March, both from 10am - 2pm.
  • ASDA Car Park, Bloxwich - Monday 20 March from 10am - 2pm.
  • Aldridge Community Centre - Thursday 7, 16 and 30 March, all from 10am - 2pm.
  • Blakenall Village Centre - Monday 6 and 13 March and Thursday 23 March, all from 10am - 2pm.
  • Stan Ball Centre - Tuesday 14 and 28 March, both from 10am - 3pm.

Further details are on the NHS Black Country Integrated Care Board (ICB) website.

“ Winter illnesses like COVID-19 and flu are still around, and it is vital that we continue to protect ourselves, our loved ones and the wider community.

Vaccination is still our best defence, reducing our risk of becoming seriously unwell. I would urge anyone who has not yet taken up their 1st, 2nd or booster COVID-19 vaccine to come forward as soon as possible while the offer is still available. Flu vaccines also continue to be offered. You can turn up to a pop-up clinic without an appointment.

In addition, the friendly vaccination team are also happy to answer any questions you may have.

We should also continue to follow simple steps to protect each other. Stay at home if you or your child feels unwell until you feel better and avoid mixing with others, including those who are more vulnerable; catch coughs and sneezes with a tissue and keep hands clean with soap and water or sanitiser. These simple steps make a difference in reducing the spread of illnesses. “

Stephen Gunther, Director of Public Health
Walsall Council

“ It’s important to remember that winter isn’t over yet and with winter illnesses such as COVID-19 and flu still circulating, getting vaccinated remains the best protection against these viruses, especially for those living with a long-term health condition.

If you are eligible for a booster, whether that’s an initial booster dose or an autumn booster, please come forward and visit our pop-up clinics while you still can.

Flu vaccines, as well as first and second doses of the COVID-19 vaccine, are also available and it’s not too late to come forward if you haven’t already done so.

If anyone is hesitant about having a vaccine or has any questions, the pop-up clinics are an opportunity to speak to experts from the NHS in a private and confidential environment, so please do pop along even if it’s just to have a conversation. “

Sally Roberts, Chief Nursing Officer
