Every Cardiff GP Practice now Offering COVID-19 Vaccine

GP practices throughout Cardiff and the Vale of Glamorgan are now offering COVID-19 vaccinations to priority groups in the community.

All 60 practices across the Cardiff and Vale University Health Board area are inviting residents aged 80 and over to receive the vaccination at the local practice, with those over 75 due to also be invited shortly.

The practices are playing an important role in contributing to the Health Board's Mass Vaccination Programme, with the aim to keep the population of Cardiff and the Vale of Glamorgan safe.

The Health Board has committed to offering the first dose of the vaccine to everybody in the JCVI priority groups one to four by mid-February, dependent upon vaccine supply to the region.

It means that residents and staff in care homes for older adults, frontline healthcare staff, those who are clinically extremely vulnerable and everybody aged 70 and above can expect to be invited to receive their first dose of the vaccination within a few short weeks.

Everyone who is eligible for a vaccination will be contacted directly by their GP Practice or the Health Board to invite them to receive their vaccine, so there is no need for people to make contact. Provisions for those patients who are housebound are also being identified and these individuals will again receive direct contact.
