Flu and Covid-19 are circulating around Gwent especially in children and at levels never seen before- this is the first time we are being faced with both large outbreaks in both Covid-19 and Flu.
It’s so important to get vaccinated and protect yourself and loved ones- our services are seeing people who are really unwell with Flu and Covid-19 and getting vaccinated is your best defence in fighting the illnesses.
Building on the success of the walk-in clinics at our Mass Vaccination Sites across the region prior to Christmas, we are now opening the doors of all our Mass Vaccination sites for walk-in Flu and Covid-19 Autumn Booster vaccinations from today, Wednesday 4th January 2023 from 10am-4:30pm. Children between the ages of 2-17 can now walk in to our Mass Vaccination sites and receive their vaccination which is a nasal spray, not an injection.
The walk-in offer for both vaccinations will be available during the Mass Vaccination Centre usual opening days and times of Tuesday-Saturday 10am-4:30pm.
