Technical problems at Cwm Taf Morgannwg UHB’s vaccination reserve list for 40-49 year olds – an update

Firstly, we would like to thank you all for your patience and understanding over our reserve list.

Our teams have worked non-stop to resolve the technical problems with the reserve list form since Tuesday night.

They have identified the issues and are now running final tests on the system.

As a result, we will not be relaunching the form until next week (week commencing April 5).  We will confirm the exact day we go live, and let you know when it is available on our website.

A large number of you did manage to submit your details and therefore you are on our list, and could receive a phone call next week.  As a precaution, because of the technical issues, if you wish to resubmit your details, please feel free to do so.  We would rather deal with duplicate entries, than you think you are on the reserve list when you are not.

We would also like to make it clear this reserve list has been set up because of a slight increase in no shows at our community vaccination centres.  It will allow us to fill cancelled appointments, and ensure, as we have done so far, that no vaccine goes to waste.  If you are in priority groups 1 to 9, it does not affect when you will be having your vaccination, as your appointments are already booked.

A reminder to be on our reserve list you must be aged 40 to 49, living in the Cwm Taf Morgannwg area, and able to attend an appointment at short notice (possibly within one hour).

Finally, a thank you again for your patience, and secondly, while we appreciate these technical issues have been frustrating we would like to thank you for your interest.  We are taking it as a huge positive that so many of you in the 40 – 49 year old age bracket wish to be on a reserve list.  The vaccines are safe, and we encourage you all to take up the offer of a vaccination so we can all protect our communities.  No one is protected until we are all protected.

Thank you.
