Covid-19 spring booster clinics to open for most vulnerable in Wrexham for people living in or visiting the Wrexham area

People aged 75 and over who have not yet received a covid-19 spring booster will be able to drop in to a vaccination centre from next week.

Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board will operate walk-in clinics across North Wales from Monday 17 June.

The top-up vaccine is being offered to older people and adults and children with a compromised immune system from serious illness caused by coronavirus.

So far over 45,000 of the region’s most vulnerable have received a spring covid-19 booster.

Ahead of the vaccination programme’s end on Friday 28 June anyone eligible for the vaccine is being urged to come forward before the end of the month.

The health board is particularly encouraging those aged 75 and over who missed their booster appointment or who has misplaced or did not receive their invitation to visit a drop-in clinic for their booster.

A spokesperson for the health board said: “Immunity against COVID-19 wanes over time, and research shows that having a booster vaccine is an important way for the most vulnerable people in our communities to increase their protection against the virus.

“We are grateful to the thousands of family members and friends of eligible older people who have supported their loved ones to receive their COVID-19 booster vaccine this Spring.

“We encourage people who have received an invitation through the post to attend their appointment at the date and time on their letter.

“Please check your letter carefully because the venue for your appointment may be different from previous vaccination programmes. If you are unable to attend your appointment, please reschedule it by calling our contact centre on 03000 840 004.

“Our teams continue to deliver thousands of booster vaccines every week at our network of community vaccination centres, including community halls, sports grounds, leisure centres and other venues.

“We also continue to visit people living in care homes and people who are housebound to offer them the extra protection given by the Spring booster.

“We urge everyone eligible for the vaccine to take up the offer to boost their protection against COVID-19 this Spring.

“We are especially keen to encourage adults and children with a compromised immune system to come forward to receive the vaccine when invited. Eligible adults and children have been sent an invitation based on their records.”
