Public Health Wales has released a nine-tier priority list for Covid-19 vaccination here in Wales.
In a post online, the NHS body explained that those most at risk of suffering serious complications from the virus will be first in line to receive the Covid-19 vaccine.
The full priority list is as follows:
In their online post, Public Health Wales reminded the public that if and when they are eligible for the vaccine, they should wait to be contacted.
In the UK, there are two types of COVID-19 vaccine currently being offered first, made by Pfizer BioNTech and AstraZeneca. Both require two separate doses to provide the best protection. Each vaccine was tested in about 20,000 people in several different countries and shown to be safe and effective.
Residents of Wales will be given one of these vaccines depending on which one is available. The first vaccines available for use in the UK will not have a UK marketing authorisation (license) yet but have been authorised by the MHRA for temporary supply in the UK based on a full assessment of safety and effectiveness.
