A POPULAR pop-up vaccination clinic at Brickfields is set to open again this month for people aged 18 and over to get a Covid jab.
The Moderna vaccination is available, so those people who received their first dose of this vaccine – at least eight weeks ago – are particularly encouraged to attend this walk-in clinic.
The clinic at KVG Community Hub, Ash Avenue on Brickfields Road will be open on Thursday (August 12) and Friday (August 13) between 9am and 7pm and on Saturday between 9am and 2pm.
Public Health in Worcestershire, NHS Herefordshire and Worcestershire Clinical Commissioning Group and Worcester City Council are working together to make it easier and more convenient for people to get vaccinated.
Dr Kathryn Cobain, Director of Public Health for Worcestershire said: “This walk-in clinic is now making it much easier and more convenient 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.
“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.”
Coun James Stanley, chairman of Worcester City Council’s Communities Committee, said: “We had a very good response from local residents when we last ran a pop-up clinic in Brickfields in May, with over 500 people getting their first jab.
“All those people are now due their second dose, and this new pop-up clinic is an easy way for them to get it, so I would strongly encourage them to come along, along with anyone over 18 who has not yet had their first jab.”
You don’t need to be registered with a GP to access the vaccination.
