Ashmore Park -Above Average In City for 1st/2nd & Booster Jabs

There is much to do in continuing to ensure The City of Wolverhampton remains as best protected as it can be against the COVID-19 pandemic, and of course pressing as hard as we can to ensure our residents, our Citizens, have taken up the vaccinations on offer, and done all they can do to test and take the guidance if they do become infected.

The Hub at Ashmore Park opened for vaccinations from the 18th December until the 23rd December.
During that period 503 people had a vaccination, we also found out that approx. One in every Five attending the Hub at Ashmore Park were a first-time vaccination.

This action by the City of Wolverhampton Council working with its partners in the NHS and others has done much to ensure our Ward here in Wednesfield North and Ashmore Park is now above average for the City for First/Second and Booster jabs. Which is I feel great news for our community.

In the New Year the Public Health team will need to be refocussing on other areas of the City who do not sport the same statistics as we do now. So it is unlikely that the Hub at Ashmore Park will be needed again in this way.

But I am in contact with the Public Health Director, encouraging him to see what can be done with the Local GP’s and Pharmacies, to carry on the encouragement to get Covid-19 Vaccinations local to Ashmore Park & across Wednesfield North.
