More than 75,000 doses of Covid-19 vaccine have now been given to residents in Bridgend County Borough.

As of Tuesday (30 March), Cwm Taf Morgannwg University Health Board (UHB) had administered 75,744 vaccines to residents in the county borough. Across the whole Cwm Taf Morgannwg area, 245,473 vaccines have been given – 196,834 first doses and 48,639 second doses.

However, some people have not been turning up for their appointments so the health board has opened up a reserve list for residents aged between 40-49 living in Cwm Taf Morgannwg who are available to make an appointment at short notice.

Appointment letters have now been sent out to everyone over the age of 50 (priority groups 1-9). Residents are encouraged to do all they can to make their appointment, but if they are unable to, they should let the health board know via the contact details in their appointment letter so the slot can be given to someone else.

The reserve list will not impact on vaccinations for priority groups but it will help to ensure no vaccines are wasted.
