Cardiff and Vale University Health Board have confirmed that their third Mass Vaccination Centre will open in Barry on Monday 8th February.

It's not yet confirmed a location, but its expected to be at Holm View Leisure Centre.

Those aged 70 - 74 and those deemed most clinically vulnerable will start to recieve invitations via post in the days to come.

The announcement follows the health board opening its second mass vaccination centre, based in Pentwyn which opened on Monday.

It joins the mass vaccination centre in Splott, with all 60 GP practices in Cardiff and the Vale helping to deliver the vaccination roll out.

Executive Director of Public Health at Cardiff and Vale University Health Board, Fiona Kinghorn, said: “It is remarkable to see the rapid progress made as part of the Health Board’s vaccination programme.

"To have the second mass vaccination centre open in addition to the existing mass vaccination centre in Splott, our two satellite clinics for frontline staff and the fantastic work done by GP practices across both counties, we’re confident that we can meet our aim of vaccinating the top four priority groups by mid-February.

“Residents aged between 70-74 and those deemed clinically extremely vulnerable will be invited for a vaccination by the Health Board. We ask for your patience at this time and I can reassure you that there is no need to contact your GP practice or the Health Board for an appointment, we will get in touch with you.

“We appreciate this is an anxious time for some. If you have any questions or concerns about the vaccination, or when you’re likely to receive your appointment, then please visit our website which has more information on the programme.”
