Bayside MVC to operate as a walk in centre this Bank Holiday weekend

 

Cardiff and Vale University will operate its Bayside Mass Vaccination Centre on a walk-in basis this Bank Holiday weekend, for anyone who has not received an invite to attend a centre.

From On Thursday 27th May – Monday 31st May, residents are encouraged to attend Bayside MVC, based in the old Toys R Us building between 8.30am – 7.30pm to receive their first dose of the COVID vaccination.

The site offers both the Pfizer and Oxford AstraZeneca vaccines.

Cardiff and Vale University Health Board has reached a milestone of inviting all adults aged 18 and over to receive their first vaccination by the end of May and are now reaching out to those that have not received an invite to attend the centre.

Bayside MVC is available as a walk in to those that have not yet had a first dose of the COVID vaccine, are aged 18 and over and live and work in Cardiff and the Vale of Glamorgan.

It is also an opportunity to speak to the vaccination team if you have any questions or concerns about receiving the vaccine.

Tracy Meredith, Head of Operations for Testing and Mass Immunisations at the Health Board said “The vaccine is still our best defence against COVID 19 and we would encourage anyone who is eligible to receive their vaccine to please get it. We have invited all of our adult population to attend but are aware there will be some people that have been missed as we perhaps did not have up to date contact details or they opted out at the start of the programme.

If you haven’t had your vaccine, please come and see us at Bayside MVC this weekend as it is the best way to protect yourselves, your loved ones and the local community. Depending on demand there may be queues so please dress appropriately for the weather and our team will get you through as quickly and safely as possible.”

People who are waiting for second doses of their vaccine will automatically receive an appointment via letter and text message 11 weeks after their first.

The Health Board has now vaccinated 82% of its adult population with a first dose and 34% of its adult population with both doses.
