VACCINE ROLL-OUT: All adults in Wales offered first jab
All over 18’s in Wales have been offered the coronavirus vaccine and 70.2% of the population have been given their first dose which means that Wales is ahead of every other nation in the world with a population of over 1 million people. However, clinics are now pressing ahead with second doses due to fears surrounding the Delta variant.
Public Health Wales have published data which shows that over 2,2 million people in Wales have received their first dose of the vaccine with the health minister Eluned Morgan saying that reaching the target so early was remarkable. Wales is ahead of other UK nations when it comes to administering the vaccine.
