First Oxford/AstraZeneca Clinic held at Pengam Green

We are pleased to announce that we have begun our Covid-19 vaccination clinics for Priority Group 1, those aged 80 years and over. The picture below shows Sister Anwen and Dr. Lewis drawing up the very first vaccination for use in our clinics. We have successfully administered the vaccine to over 100 people during our first 3 clinics and utilised our entire stock of the Oxford/AstraZeneca vaccine. We anticipate receiving more stock very soon.

We would like to take this opportunity to remind the public to be patient in these early stages of the vaccination rollout. Whilst our initial clinics are restricted due to the limited number of vaccinations we receive from the Health Board, please be confident that we have put processes in place to ensure that as soon as possible after receiving the vaccine into the Practice we are telephoning patients to come and have their injection.

We hope to ramp up our efforts very soon with the promised increase in vaccine but during this busy time please do not call the practice to request your vaccination as we are working to strict guidelines set by the Government and cannot vaccinate anyone outside of the current priority group.

As a reminder please be clear that we will not tolerate any foul or abusive language directed towards our staff. We take a zero tolerance approach to both physical and verbal abuse and will remove patients from our list if we feel your behaviour is unacceptable.
