Friday 26th February
We are receiving a small delivery of COVID vaccine on Wednesday 3rd and have begun contacting patients in Cohort 5 again. Indications are that delivery of vaccine will improve to allow us to continue vaccinating at a steadier pace.
Thank you for your continued patience.
Friday 19th February
We have been informed by the Health Board that we will not receive any further COVID vaccines next week and therefore cannot make any further bookings until the next delivery arrives. We apologise for any inconvenience caused and will continue to contact our next cohort (65 to under 70) once we know when the next delivery date will be.
Anyone with an appointment already booked to receive their vaccination next week should attend as planned.
Thursday 18th February
We have begun contacting our over 65 and under 70 patient group to invite them in for vaccination. However, we are reliant on the delivery of vaccine before we can ring patients to offer appointments so please be patient if you do not hear from us straight away.
We will update this page as soon as we have more information and there will be regular updates on our Facebook page too.
Monday 1st February 2021
If you are aged over 70 and under 75, or you are clinically extremely vulnerable (in receipt of a shielding letter ) and under the age of 75
PLEASE CONTACT THE SURGERY ON 01646 624198 TO MAKE YOUR APPOINTMENT NOW.
Appointments will be available from next Monday, we will also be holding a Saturday Clinic on February 13th from 8am to 18.30pm.
We have now contacted all our over 80's by telephone but if you have not been contacted or know someone who hasn't received a call please let us know.
Due to the volume of calls we would ask that you ring to book your appointment after 10am.
Please note - if you are aged between 75-79 then you will be sent a letter with an appointment to attend a mass vaccination centre to be given your vaccination. These are not being done by the surgery.

Positive news! We have received our first batch of the AstraZeneca vaccinations and will shortly begin vaccinating care home residents and their carers (Priority 1).
We are also in the process of contacting our patients who are 80 years of age or over to offer appointments for their vaccinations or making provisions if they are housebound (Priority 2).
(Frontline health and social care workers in Priority 2 are also being contacted.
Welsh Government are rolling out the Covid Vaccine as quickly as possible. Please see the information provided as to how the roll-out will progress. We would ask patients not to contact the surgery to ask when they can book their appointment, we will publish further information via our Facebook page and website or we may contact you via the post/telephone or text. We will try and give as much information as we can as quickly as possible.
