Vale Residents Aged 50+ Advised To Book Vaccine If They’ve Not Yet Received

 

The Cardiff and Vale University Health Board are advising those aged 50 and over in the Vale to call them to book their Covid-19 vaccine if they have not yet received it.

Over one million people in Wales have already received their first dose of the vaccine, with the vaccination programme currently focusing on those aged 50-59 years old, unpaid carers who provide care to someone who is clinically vulnerable to Covid-19, and everyone over 16 with an underlying health condition which puts them at increased risk of serious illness with Covid-19, including some people with learning disabilities and with severe mental illness.

Those aged 50+ in the Vale who have not yet received their vaccine are asked to call Cardiff and Vale University Health Board on their booking line, 02921 841234, so they can get you booked into one of their Mass Vaccination Centres.

Additionally, the health board has asked that those who have received an appointment but do not wish to attend get in touch with them so that they can offer the slot to someone else.

Finally, in their post on social media, Cardiff and the Vale University Health Board asked that everyone within the current priority list for the vaccine can make sure that their details with their GP are up to date. This is due to a number of DNAs (Did Not Attends) that they are experiencing.
