The Welsh government have announced on Wednesday that every elderly care home resident have now been offered the vaccine.
The Welsh Minister for Mental Health, Eluned Morgan said, “All older person care homes have either received visits from vaccination teams or visits are planned.
“Where visits have not taken place yet, it is because there have been live Covid cases in the last 20 days.
“The vaccination teams will visit these homes as soon as the public health advice allows.
“I want to thank everyone who is working so hard to provide vaccines to everyone who needs them.
“Every vaccine delivered is a small victory against the virus.”
Also across England all care home residents have been offered the Covid vaccine, but not all staff as “cultural issues” are in play.
The National Care Association’s executive chairman, Nadra Ahmed, told the BBC, “Some of it is to do with cultural issues and some is that people just don’t want to have the vaccine.
“We have to convince people that this vaccine is for them. That it’s for the staff, to protect them and therefore protect the services they work in.”
