Vaccination centres in parts of the country will be open for walk-in appointments from this weekend


Covid-19 vaccine

The Welsh Government's Health Minister Eluned Morgan has said that vaccination centres in parts of the country will be open for walk-in appointment from this weekend.


Some 75% of people under fifty years of age have had a first dose of a Cov-19 vaccine.


Everyone over the age of eighteen can attend some vaccination centres to get their first dose of the Covid vaccine without needing an appointment.


The Welsh Government is encouraging young adults in particular to take up the offer.


Minister for Health and Social Services Eluned Morgan said: “All adults in Wales should have now had an offer of the vaccine, but we know that in some cases people may have had to cancel or miss their appointments. We want to make it as easy as possible for people to get their vaccine, particularly younger adults who have other demands on their time.

“In Wales we have a “no one left behind” policy and making walk-in appointments available is another way in which we can ensure all adults have access to a vaccination at a time and place convenient for them.

“The vaccine remains the best way we can protect ourselves and we need everyone to keep saying yes to the vaccine and to remember that one dose isn’t enough. We all need two doses to complete the course and to have the best chance of reducing our risk of serious illness. Please take the opportunity for a vaccination to help protect yourselves and your loved ones and to keep Wales safe.”
