The Covid-19 vaccine rollout started on 08 December 2020.

Patient-facing staff within the Health sector are the first to receive the vaccine. Care home staff and patients will then receive the vaccine. Roll out of the vaccine to the community will then follow. 

The general public will be contacted when ready to receive the vaccine. There will be a vaccine for every person who wants one. The public do not need to call their GP or local hospital.

All the latest information about the vaccine, advice for patients, and the eligibility criteria is available on the Public Health Wales Website.
