“PTHB is extremely pleased that the COVID vaccination programme has begun successfully in Powys. Last week saw almost 1,000 health and care staff vaccinated and almost 3,000 more are due to be vaccinated by Christmas. The next phase of vaccination will be to invite those aged over 80 years old for vaccination. At the moment it is NOT possible for those aged over 80 to book for vaccination and we kindly request that people do NOT call either their GP or the vaccine booking line at this time. There is still a lot of planning taking place at the moment to ensure that this process will be as effective as possible, and as soon as we are able to we will be contacting those eligible for vaccination directly.
We urge everyone to continue to follow national guidance on social distancing and to help keep Wales safe.”
