Wales to offer Pfizer vaccine to high risk groups in December

10th Nov 20 3:28 pm

The Welsh government announced on Tuesday that they will offer people who are in high risk groups the new Pfizer vaccine in December, once it passes regulatory checks.

The Welsh government have already started the planning for the “logistics” of mass vaccination across the country for high risk vulnerable groups.

A Welsh government spokesman said, “Planning for the delivery of a potential COVID-19 vaccine in Wales is well under way.

“This includes organising the logistics for transporting the vaccine, identifying suitable venues for vaccinations to take place and ensuring that healthcare professionals are available and trained to administer the vaccines.

“There will be limited supplies of a vaccine at first, so it will be offered to those at highest risk. The vaccines need to pass final safety checks, but if this occurs, we will begin to immunise in December alongside other UK nations.

“Health and social care workers, care home residents and staff have been prioritised to receive a vaccine first, with roll-out to older people in age bands from next year.”
