We’re still sending appointment invitations to this group, so if your child hasn’t received a letter just yet, please don’t worry that they have been missed. There’s no need to call us to try and book an appointment.
This week we’re holding the following half term walk-in clinics for anyone aged 12-17 years and 9 months only to receive their first dose, if they don’t already have an appointment booked in the coming weeks:
Catrin Finch Centre – Sunday 31st October from 09:00 to 17:00
Deeside Leisure Centre – Sunday 31st October from 09:00 to 19:00
Optic Centre – Saturday 30th and Sunday 31st from 08:30 to 19:30
Sector House – Saturday 30th and Sunday 31st from 08:30 to 19:30
Plas Arthur Leisure Centre - Thursday 28th October from 10am-5.20pm
Ffriddoedd Road - Thursday 28th October from 9am – 6:30pm.
Please keep to your existing appointment, if you have one booked in over the coming weeks.
Please note that a parent or guardian of those aged 12-15 will need to accompany them when receiving their vaccination.
All 12-15 year olds in Wales will be offered a first dose of the Pfizer vaccine. The JCVI has seen more safety data for Pfizer for this age group so it is the preferred vaccine.
The JCVI has been asked for advice on whether second doses should be offered when more international data is available on second doses in this age group. This will not be before the Spring 2022.
The vast majority of clinical queries can be discussed at our vaccination centres as part of your appointment. Our experienced clinical staff can take the time to discuss any concerns or questions you have before you make a decision on whether or not to go ahead with vaccination.
If you have a clinical query which cannot wait until the day of your appointment, please contact our COVID-19 Vaccination Clinical Advisors at BCU.CovidVaccineClinicalAdvisor@wales.nhs.uk
Please note that this email address should only be used for clinical queries. Information on eligibility, how you will be contacted, and what you should do if your vaccination information is incorrect can be found elsewhere on our Frequently Asked Questions pages.
