Health Board Confirms Temporary Vaccination Centre Closures Due To Risk Of Snow


Tuesday 9th Mar 2021


With snow forecast across much of Wales and a yellow weather warning in place, Cwm Taf Morgannwg University Health Board has confirmed that all four of its community vaccination centres will be temporarily closed on Sunday 24 January.

The vaccination centres, which are based at Bridgend, the Rhondda, Abercynon and Merthyr Tydfil, will remain closed as a safety precaution as up to 3cm of snow has been forecast to fall in most areas, with more expected on higher ground.

Appointments have either been brought forward or are being re-arranged, but anyone who was booked to receive a vaccination shot on Sunday and who may have a further query about the new arrangements can contact the number provided as part of their appointment letter.

The health board website also features a dedicated section within the Frequently Asked Questions page on its corporate website.

The situation is being monitored closely and further updates will be issued as the situation develops.
