The Welsh Government’s Covid-19 Vaccination Strategy sets out three key milestones:
• By mid-February – all care home residents and staff; frontline health and social care staff; everyone over 70 and everyone who is clinically extremely vulnerable will have been offered vaccination.
• By the Spring – vaccination will have been offered to all the other phase one priority groups. This is everyone over 50 and everyone who is at-risk because they have an underlying health condition.
• By the Autumn – vaccination will have been offered to all other eligible adults in Wales, in line with any guidance issued by the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI).
In total, around 2.5m people throughout Wales could be offered Covid vaccines by September, depending on further advice from the JCVI. The strategy depends on sufficient and regular supplies of the vaccines being delivered. It will be kept
under review in line with supply of the vaccine and any further advice from the JCVI.
Solva and St Davids Surgeries
Each surgery has received an initial supply of the Oxford/AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine, and will now begin the vaccination of eligible patients in the following priority groups:
● Residents in a care home for older adults and their carers
● All those 80 years of age and over
● Front line Primary Care staff and social care workers whom the Health Board has allocated to us for vaccination.
The surgeries request that patients do not call them. They will call you in Priority Group order.
