UPDATED 19/11/21

Please only re-book your appointment if you/your child has been ill or has Covid symptoms.

UPDATED 16/11/21

Expansion of booster programme to ages 40-49 and 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.

Booster for 40-49s

  • Booster offered six months or more following second dose
  • 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.

Boosters for 18-39s

  • JCVI to make a decision on this age group at a later date pending further evidence on vaccine waning in this group. As most younger adults will have received their second dose in late summer or early autumn, they will still have a high level of protection.
