Second doses for 16-17 year olds not at risk

Minister for Health and Social Services Eluned Morgan has accepted the latest advice from the UK independent body, the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI). 

16-17 year olds who are not in an at-risk group

  • Second dose 12 weeks or more following first dose (12 weeks or more following Covid infection for those who caught Covid after their first dose.)
  • Offers more durable protection and further reduces the risk of infection and serious illness, hospitalisation and intensive care admission.
  • It’s too soon to give exact details on how this will be rolled out across Swansea and Neath Port Talbot. We will update everyone as soon as we have more details.

Go to this page for the full written statement on the JCVI announcement from Eluned Morgan.
