Covid vaccine

  1. The roll out of the Covid-19 vaccine is continuing in Wolverhampton. It is currently available to people in the first priority group – people aged 80 and over, care home residents and staff and health care workers at high risk – and will be rolled out to others based on factors such as their age and risk in the near future.

The vaccine is being delivered from New Cross Hospital and a number of primary care sites.

All GPs in Wolverhampton are linked to these primary care sites, and will offer the vaccine to eligible patients. People will be contacted by the NHS as and when they become eligible for the vaccine; there is no need to call their GP or pharmacy. For details of the priority list, visit

Vaccination centres which will be capable of treating large numbers of patients will be established across the region in the coming weeks as further supplies of the vaccine become available, and it will also be made available from community pharmacies; further details will be confirmed in due course.
