ONE of the county's mass covid vaccination sites will be closed this weekend.

The Three Counties Showground vaccination centre is being vacated for the RHS Malvern Autumn Show.

This means that from September 24 to 27, anyone wanting to drop-in for their covid vaccine will have to do so at the Bengeworth Club in Evesham or St Peters Baptist Church in Worcester.

SW Healthcare, which runs the vaccination site, provided an update via Twitter.

It said: "The Three Counties Showground in Malvern is closed until September 27 for an event taking place on site.

"Don't forget, you can book your jab at any of our sites by calling 119 or going to"

Meanwhile. Anyone aged 16 or over who needs to have their first or second vaccinations can 'Grab a Jab' at Bengeworth Club in Coronation Street.

The walk-in vaccination clinic will be open from 10am until 5pm on Saturday, September 25 and Sunday, September 26.

There is no need to book or be registered with a GP, people can just turn up and have a vaccine. The vaccine being given will be Pfizer.

The walk-in clinic is part of an ongoing initiative to give those who haven’t already had their first vaccination an opportunity to do so, as well as encouraging the take up of second doses.

Cllr Christopher Day, executive board member for health and wellbeing on Wychavon District Council, said: “Getting the covid-19 vaccine will help protect you and your loved ones from the virus and help us continue our journey back to normality.

“I’m grateful to all partners and volunteers for supporting us to set up this ‘Grab a Jab’ clinic that will make it even easier for our residents to get their first or second vaccine dose.”

Dr Kathryn Cobain, director of public health for Worcestershire, said: "We are so grateful to everyone who has got their vaccination so far.

"This is a really good opportunity for those who haven’t been able to get it yet to pop in and get their jab. Covid-19 is still in our community and getting vaccinated is one of the best things we can do to protect ourselves, our family and our community."
