Those over the age of 80 who have not been contacted for their Covid-19 vaccine are being asked to get in touch with the health board to make an appointment.

As of this weekend Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board has now vaccinated 32,990 people in the top priority group of those aged 80+.

Details provided in the health boards’ vaccination plan show that there are 35,371 people across the region within that category – 14,785 are in Wrexham and Flintshire, 9,550 in Gwynedd and Ynys Mon and 11,036 in Conwy and Denbighshire.

The health board say that although the “majority” of over 80s have been vaccinated, anyone who has yet to receive a vaccine or a appointment is urged to get in touch.

In a statement, the health board said: “If you are aged 80 years or over, or know of someone who is, and have not had a first COVID-19 vaccination or an appointment to have it, please call the vaccinations booking centre and we will arrange an appointment.

“The opening hours are 8am to 8pm. The lines are very busy, the best time to call is late afternoon, or evening before 8pm. This message is for the over 80s only who do not have a first appointment, please do not use the telephone number provided above to enquire about new appointments unless you are over 80 or information about the vaccine as the call handlers are not medically trained.

“Please only use this vaccinations booking centre number for the above reasons. We are sending invites out for vaccination in order of priority, according to national recommendations.

“We will repeat this process for different priority groups in due course to make sure everyone has had an opportunity to be vaccinated at the correct time.”

The telephone number for the vaccinations booking centre is as follows, but again DO NOT ring it if it is not in relation to the above: 03000 840004
