On Friday I visited Oak Park Leisure Centre as it was about to go live as one of the Covid-19 vaccination hubs in the Walsall Borough.

Walsall Council has provided this site and combined with the local Primary Care Network and Walsall Together to create the hub for the East of the Borough.   NHS staff, GPs, Council Staff, leisure centre staff and volunteers are all working extremely hard vaccinating local residents from my Aldridge-Brownhills constituency, and the organisation and logistics are incredible. I pay tribute to all those involved in making this happen.  Thank you!

I appreciate that people want to receive their vaccinations but it is really important that as residents you wait until you are contacted by your GP practice, or the NHS.

The Covid-19 vaccination programme is the largest in our history, but it will ensure that we can steadily return to a more normal way of life after a year of unprecedented restrictions.
