Eluned Morgan MS, Minister for Health and Social Services
Today I am publishing our COVID-19 Vaccination Strategy, setting out how the vaccination programme will continue to deliver effectively, efficiently and at pace into the autumn and winter months to keep Wales safe.
Our COVID-19 Vaccination Autumn & Winter Strategy focuses on vaccinating the most vulnerable, vaccinating children and young people, booster vaccinations and re-affirms our commitment not to leave anyone behind. The Strategy sets out our aims and ambitions for each of these areas. I will continue to keep you updated on activity and progress against the strategy.
Successful delivery of the next phase of the programme will continue to require a flexible approach to respond to the increasing complexity of the vaccination cohorts. The NHS will need to respond promptly and effectively, as it has done throughout the pandemic. I am determined this next phase in our vaccination programme is as successful as our previous phases in helping keep Wales safe.
Once again, I would like to thank everyone involved in the vaccine rollout; every dose of vaccine given to someone is a small victory against the virus and helps our NHS.
