How to access your vaccine

Anyone aged 18 and over can get a jab this week from the COVID Vaccine Van or from a local clinic. No appointment is necessary and you don’t need to be registered with a GP.

Alternatively, you can book an appointment.

Getting double jabbed is the most important thing we can do to stop the spread of the virus and protect our friends and loved ones. Don’t delay! For details visit https://bit.ly/3jAgkrD

Vaccination and fertility - Information for women of childbearing age

If you’ve heard that COVID-19 vaccine can affect your fertility – this is false information. Obstetricians from The Royal Wolverhampton Trust have created this handy poster with valid information to offer you some reassurance: https://bit.ly/3gaEF5o

If you are concerned, please check with your GP - vaccinators can also discuss any issues with you when you attend your appointment

Watch Emma, the Antenatal Clinical Manager from the Royal Wolverhampton NHS Trust, talk about the false information some women have heard that the COVID-19 vaccine affects your fertility now or in the future. She talks about a joint statement from The Royal College of Midwives (RCM) and The Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (RCOG) to say there is no evidence that suggests it will affect your fertility. The vaccine is the best chance of getting back to normality. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wWbBcD5a2yE

Are you planning to get pregnant or already pregnant? Are you unsure if the COVID-19 vaccines affect fertility? Watch Dr Gayatri Amirthalingam’s on fertility and the COVID-19 vaccination https://youtu.be/aF4Hk5C27KU or download a pregnancy leaflet here.

A new page COVID-19 vaccine and women of childbearing age is now available on the CCG website to direct people to for more information, the link to this is: https://www.blackcountryandwestbirmccg.nhs.uk/your-health-services/health-advice/covid-19-vaccination/covid-19-vaccine-and-women-of-childbearing-age

Needle phobia

Is a fear of needles stopping you from getting your COVID-19 jab? The vaccinators and staff at local vaccination centres have been trained to support people who suffer from this common phobia to overcome their fears for a brief moment in order to get themselves protected. https://www.blackcountryandwestbirmccg.nhs.uk/news-and-events/latest-news/supporting-those-needle-phobia-get-vaccinated
