The COVID-19 vaccination programme is the largest scale vaccination campaign in our country’s history. Our health service has never mobilised an immunisation programme on this scale – it will be unique in many of our lifetimes – and during the most difficult time in the NHS’s history.
Every NHS organisation in Wales has had a huge role to play in the roll-out of the COVID-19 vaccination programme. By working closely with partners, including Local Authorities, the third sector and the military, NHS Wales organisations are delivering vaccines at a pace and scale which has been nothing short of remarkable.
At the time of writing, despite facing many different challenges, the NHS in Wales has delivered over 684,000 first doses of a COVID-19 vaccine. This is equivalent to around 20% of the population.
