New walk-in appointments ‘won’t leave anyone behind’

Cwm Taf Morgannwg University Health Board has announced some new changes for its ongoing vaccination programme.

From Monday 5 July, residents aged 18 and over who live within the health board region and who have yet to receive their first dose of the coronavirus vaccine will be able to take advantage of new ‘walk-in’ appointments.

With no prior booking required, the walk-in appointments will be available at the majority of community vaccination centres within the region. Anyone who wishes to take advantage of the first dose walk-in appointment will need to bring along a form of ID such as a passport, drivers licence or a utility bill for proof of address. 

This includes Ravens Court in Bridgend town centre (CF31 4AP) where the walk-in appointments will be available between 9:15am-4:30pm, Monday to Saturday.

It does not include Maesteg Sports Centre, where the first-dose schedule has been completed and activities are winding down to enable preparations for the third phase of the vaccination programme to take place.

Bookings for second-dose appointments are continuing and will run alongside the walk-in vaccinations as normal.

Across the Cwm Taf region, 88 per cent of eligible adults have received their first dose, and 65 per cent are fully vaccinated.

As more than 561,600 vaccines have been administered, the new walk-in appointments form part of a wider strategy to make sure that nobody is left behind.

The pandemic is far from over, and in order to keep our communities safe from coronavirus, it is absolutely essential for people to ensure that they receive both doses of the vaccine. The walk-in clinics will offer anyone who declined or missed their original appointment an opportunity to catch up, and to do their bit to keep their families, friends, neighbours and themselves safe from Covid-19.
