WALK-in Covid vaccinations are available in Bromsgrove this Saturday (June 26) as the 'Grab a Jab' initiative gets underway.

With the rise of the Delta variant of the virus, the government is pushing out the vaccine to all adults in the UK, with the Artrix offering walk-in appointments for those over 18 who are yet to receive their first jab.

No booking is required, with as many people as possible wanted to come forward for their jab.

Residents are reminded to bring photo I.D to prove your age. The Artrix will be open from 2pm to 6pm

Dr Kathryn Cobain, director of public health for Worcestershire said: "Across Worcestershire, our vaccine programme has been really successful, the numbers of people taking up the offer of a vaccine have been positive.

"We are so grateful to everyone who has come forward so far across the county.

"I am so thankful to Bromsgrove District Council and our local NHS partners who have once again joined with us to put on a walk-in clinic at the Artrix in Bromsgrove.

"This should make it easier for our younger residents to get their first vaccine, as they can just drop by and be seen. Clinics like these make it much easier and more convenient for people come forward and to get vaccinated.

"Vaccination is so important, not only as it protects the person receiving the vaccine but it also helps to protect their loved ones and local residents.”

Councillor Karen May, leader of Bromsgrove District Council and cabinet member for health and wellbeing for Worcestershire County Council added: “Our vaccination programme has been a real success story so far and it allows us to look forward to brighter times ahead as we loosen restrictions and return to a pre-pandemic way of life.

"The vaccination clinic is available to anyone who hasn’t had their first vaccination, as long as you bring ID that proves your date of birth. This is an ideal chance for those who haven’t had their first vaccine yet to take that first step in protecting themselves and others.”
