COVID-19 Vaccinations

Vaccine Hub at City Hospital

A walk-in vaccination centre is situated at Birmingham’s City Hospital for people aged 16 and over. The hub, based at Sheldon Block, sees patients between 8am and 6pm, seven days a week, who are eligible for their first and second jab.

Pregnant women can also attend the walk-in centre for their jab, and from August 24, vaccination sessions will be held every Tuesday and Friday afternoon in the antenatal unit, within the Maternity Department at City Hospital. 

As well as seeing walk-ins, people can also book an appointment by going to the national booking website. The centre is being run by Sandwell and West Birmingham NHS Trust and will be administering the Pfizer vaccine to the under 40s and AstraZeneca to those over 40.

The hub is situated behind the Birmingham and Midland Eye Centre on the City Hospital site.

Vaccinating 16-17 year olds

A number of vaccination sites across the Black Country and West Birmingham, including City Hospital, are offering walk-in vaccines to young people aged between 16 and 17.

This follows recent guidance from the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) to extend the vaccination roll out to 16 and 17-year-olds.

Young people aged between 16 and 17, with no underlying health conditions, are now eligible for a single dose of the Pfizer vaccine, which they can get now get at a number of walk-in vaccination sites.

Those turning 18 in three months or less, or aged between 16 to 18 and clinically vulnerable or work in health and social care, can book their first dose online now or use a local walk-in centre, with second doses available after eight weeks.
