THE Covid-19 vaccine van will be out again over the coming days in locations across the Dudley borough - offering jabs to people aged 18 and over without the need for an appointment.

Drop-in sessions are for first or second doses of the Pfizer vaccine.

The van will be at Pensnett Trading Estate, car park of Building 5, Kingswinford, from 9am to 6pm on Thursday July 8 and 9am to 4pm on Friday July 9.

It will also be at Halesowen Cultural Centre from 9.30am to 5.30pm on Thursday July 8.

It moves to Somers Square, Halesowen town centre, from 9am to 5pm on Saturday July 10 before heading to Wrens Nest Youth Centre from 11am to 5pm on Sunday July 11 and 10am to 6pm on Monday July 12.

Any adult who has not had their first vaccine is invited to pop along. No appointment is needed, people can just turn up.

Those with questions about the vaccine can have a no-obligation chat to the qualified health professionals who will be working there.

People do not need to be registered with a GP to join the walk-in sessions and older adults who have not yet taken up the offer of a vaccine are especially encouraged to take advantage of the opportunity.

People can also walk in and get their jab at Jhoots Pharmacy at Brierley Hill Health and Social Care centre on Venture Way seven days a week 10am to 10pm. No appointment is necessary.

Councillor Nicolas Barlow, Dudley's cabinet member for health and adult social care, said: "This is the second week the vaccine van has toured the borough and we’ve seen hundreds of people taking up the offer of their first or second jab.

"I’d urge anyone aged 18 or above who still hasn’t had their first dose to come along, the van gives them the flexibility to turn up at a time to suit them.

"The more of us who have the vaccine, the safer we are as a community and we can move out of the restrictions, when allowed, with confidence."

People can also book a vaccine by going online at or by calling 119.
