Four pharmacies located in north Wales have started vaccinating patients against COVID-19 due to sector leaders declaring that the programme's lack of pharmacy involvement is worrying.

Community pharmacies and other primary care providers are now permitted to enter into arrangements with local health boards to provide the COVID-19 primary care immunisation in the form of legislation passed by the Welsh government in December 2020.

“4 pharmacies in north Wales have started vaccinating patients against COVID-19.“

The first minister of Wales, Mark Drakeford stated: “Unless health boards start planning these things now and commissioning community pharmacies with urgency and pace, then this transition is a ticking time bomb in the vaccine programme."
