Covid update

Infection rates have continued to deteriorate.

The rate for Solihull is 105 cases per 100,000 people.

The West Midlands average is 70 and the national average is 95.

About a third of cases are in the 16-24 age group; the next largest group is 11-15s and there are still quite a few cases amongst older people.

There were 13 patients in intensive care as of Tuesday.


Vaccination rates

Anybody aged 18 and over is now eligible for vaccination, so please encourage younger people to make an appointment.

Across the whole Solihull population, around 80% of adults have had one vaccination, and about two thirds have had two injections.

Over 40% of 18-29s have had their first vaccination, which is a great start.

Additional vaccination capacity is being made available. There will be a walk-in vaccination session at St Margaret’s Church in Olton (155 Warwick Road, B92 7JS) on Wednesday 30 June, 9am – 1pm.



We are seeing testing rates go up, which is good, because regular testing continues to be the main way we can contain an outbreak.
