Mass Vaccination Centre at Pentwyn Leisure Centre now operational

The first jabs were given today at Cardiff & Vale University Health Board's newly operational COVID-19 Mass Vaccination Centre at Pentwyn Leisure Centre.

The Health Board has issued reminders to wait for an appointment before visiting the new Pentwyn vaccination centre, and the existing centre in Splott.

While Pentwyn Leisure Centre is closed to leisure users to enable the mass vaccination centre, we are looking to see if we can take the opportunity to make some investment to modernise the facility.

If the necessary budget can be identified, plans will be worked up to discuss with the local community.

Options currently being looked at include a larger, upgraded gym area, improvements to the outdoor pitches, and changes to the pool area to make it better for swimming, and for learning to swim.

This map presents COVID-19 in the same way as we organise our primary and community care services, in six neighbourhood clusters in Cardiff.

We use these clusters because they best reflect areas within which people are most likely to live, work and shop. This means you can get the best idea of the current rate of new COVID-19 infections in your area.
