Covid reminder jabs available for booking through Betsi Cadwaladr’s online booking service
Posted: Wed Dec 15 2021
Update: Wed 15 December
If you have not yet been invited for a reminder appointment in December, you will be able to book one online using Betsi Cadwaladr’s new online booking service.
The health council said the appointments were posted in batches, “to ensure our IT infrastructure is able to handle the demand.”
In Flintshire, only reservations are available at Bradley Practice in Buckley, but other vaccination sites will be put online.
If you have received an appointment from January 1, you will be contacted by SMS with instructions on how to advance your appointment through our online booking service.
Ffion Johnstone – West Area Director said: âOver the next few days we will be making 230,000 appointments available online at various clinics in North Wales through December 31st.
âBooking online helps ensure you receive your jab and reduces waiting time. It also helps to ensure that we have the right levels of staff and vaccines available in each clinic. “
“Please note that if you show up at a clinic that is not a designated appointment and you did not book an appointment online, you will face a long line.”
âWe will only be able to offer you a vaccine if we are ahead of schedule and have sufficient vaccine supplies and staff. “
âThose who book in advance using our online reservation service will always have priority in the queues. “
âPlease do everything possible to book by December 31, as our ability to administer COVID-19 jabs will be drastically reduced in early January. “
Ffion Johnstone said some people may be invited directly through their GP office or community pharmacy – “but we urge people not to phone to inquire about appointments at this time. Please keep the phone lines toll-free. for patients who need to access services.
Appointments at some vaccination clinics run by general practitioner offices and community pharmacies can be made using the online reservation service.
Ffion Johnstone said: âThere are currently 60,000 booked appointments in place for North wales residents in December.
“We need to find 230,000 more appointments for those who are eligible but do not yet have an appointment this month.”
“It is therefore critical that if you have an appointment booked in December, you stick to it. “
âDon’t contact us to reorganize as it slows down our efforts to protect others. You will wait until January for an alternative.
Ffion Johnstone said a smaller number of designated and âpop-upâ mobile clinics will take place by December 31.
“Some of them will be published online and in local media.”
“However, as others will target high-traffic areas (for example in supermarkets or shopping malls), where the vaccine supply is likely to be depleted very quickly, we will not necessarily post them in advance. . “
