Walk In Vaccination Centres

Written by on 2nd July 2021

Vaccination centres across the Cwm Taf University Health Board will be open for walk-in appointments from Monday 5th July as the Health Minister makes a call to all adults to get their jab. So far, 75% of people aged under-50 in Wales have had their first dose.

All over 18’s can attend some vaccination centres to get their first dose of the Covid vaccine without needing an appointment, and young adults in particular are being encouraged to take up this offer.

Minister for Health and Social Services Eluned Morgan said:

“All adults in Wales should have now had an offer of the vaccine, but we know that in some cases people may have had to cancel or miss their appointments.  We want to make it as easy as possible for people to get their vaccine, particularly younger adults who have other demands on their time. 

“In Wales we have a “no one left behind” policy and making walk-in appointments available is another way in which we can ensure all adults have access to a vaccination at a time and place convenient for them.

“The vaccine remains the best way we can protect ourselves and we need everyone to keep saying yes to the vaccine and to remember that one dose isn’t enough.  We all need two doses to complete the course and to have the best chance of reducing our risk of serious illness.  Please take the opportunity for a vaccination to help protect yourselves and your loved ones and to keep Wales safe.”

Tracy Meredith, Head of Operations Testing and Mass Immunisation, said: 

“We’re working really hard across vaccination centres in Wales to make getting the jab as quick and convenient for people as possible, and we want to thank everyone who has done their bit and come forward to get their vaccine. Ask your friends and family if they have been vaccinated and please encourage them to come along.

“It’s a great opportunity to drop in this weekend, get your vaccine and be protected.”

From Monday, ALL of the community vaccination centres in the Cwm Taf Morgannwg University Health Board area will hold walk-in vaccination clinics.

These will be held at:-

  • Llantrisant Leisure Centre
  • Cynon Valley Indoor Bowls Centre (Mon-Fri)
  • Rhondda Sports Centre (Mon-Fri)
  • Merthyr Tydfil Leisure Centre
  • Bridgend in Ravens Court

All vaccination Centres are open 9:15am – 4:30pm Monday – Saturday apart from the Cynon Valley Indoor Bowls Centre and Rhondda Sports Centre, which are only open Monday – Friday.

You will also be required to take I.D with you.
