Pop-up vaccination clinics appearing across the borough throughout February

First, second and booster COVID-19 vaccinations will be available at a surprising range of locations during February – from a football match to the shops and local library.

To help make getting vaccinated more convenient for busy residents, NHS pop-up clinics are appearing across the borough – including at Tranmere Rovers Football Club and several Matalan stores – throughout the month.

Wirral’s Director of Public Health, Julie Webster said, “We’re really pleased to be working with the NHS to offer jabs to residents at times and locations that are convenient for them.

“Although almost 80 per cent of Wirral people who are eligible for the vaccine have had at least two doses, we know that many thousands still haven’t had a jab or are yet to complete their two courses and booster.

“But it’s not too late – if you’ve not got around to getting your first, second or booster dose, please make use of our pop-up clinics to get fully vaccinated and give yourself the maximum protection from becoming seriously ill from COVID-19.”

Dr Abhi Mantgani, Clinical Lead at Birkenhead Vaccination Centre, is also urging people to not delay getting vaccinated and to find a local, convenient walk-in site this week.

He said, “The vaccine is our best protection from the Omicron variant, especially the booster dose which tops-ups protection from the first two jabs.

“As we continue the fight against the virus, I’d like to encourage everyone who’s not yet vaccinated or due a second or booster dose to please come forward.

Vaccines will be available on a first come, first-served basis and those with appointments at participating clinics will be able to continue to attend at their time slot and receive their vaccine as planned.
