All over the age of 50 and adults at risk of underlying health conditions have been offered a Covid-19 vaccine in Wales, the Welsh government has said.

The Welsh Government target would have provided the first dose of the vaccine to everyone in Priority Groups 1-9 by 19 April.

First Minister Mark Drakeford said last week Wales would achieve its goal of offering everyone over the age of 50 a first dose of the Coronavirus vaccine on Sunday.

During a news conference Thursday, Mr. Drakeford said: “By Sunday, we will have provided a vaccine for everyone in the top nine priority groups, namely anyone over 50 or older with an underlying health condition and many unpaid caregivers.

Despite claiming to have been offered a Covid hit over 50, some people have been in contact with Deeside.com saying they have not been contacted yet.

Speaking to BBC Radio Wales this morning Dr Giri Shankar, chief health adviser and incident director for COVID-19 in Wales Public Health said vaccine distribution plans across all health boards are managed by local teams.

All those individuals who believe they should have received a call for a vaccine and have not yet done so, we strongly encourage them to make contact with local health boards.

If there is any such missed meeting they will be offered those appointments immediately.

A Welsh government spokesman said: “I can confirm that the second stage has been reached, all Phase 1 priority groups have been offered an NHS vaccine.

We are encouraging people in these priority groups who have not yet had a vaccine to contact their local health board to fix it.

Responding to the targeted vaccination line, PlaidCymrus Rhun ap Iorwerth MS Health Spokesman said,

This milestone is a testament to the tireless work of our wonderful NHS staff and volunteer army who have gone beyond the call of duty to ensure that Wales is able to achieve this goal. This would not have been possible without them.

The spread of vaccines gives us hope and confidence that we are moving in the right direction and must keep pace to ensure that the people of Wales are vaccinated as soon as possible.

We need to know what this milestone means for further easing of restrictions. I am grateful to the people of Wales for everything they have done to get us to this point.

Anyone in Priority Groups 5-9 – which includes all people aged 50 – is encouraged to contact the COVID-19 Vaccination Reservation Center on 0300 084 0004 if they have not received an appointment date
