Due to adverse weather warnings of snow and ice, Cwm Taf Morgannwg UHB has taken the decision to close two of its community vaccination centres tomorrow – Saturday, January 30. 

The safety of patients and staff is paramount. 

Both Merthyr Tydfil and Abercynon community vaccination centres will be shut. 

For people due to be vaccinated at either of those two centres tomorrow, they will be contacted, and their appointments will be re-arranged for the earliest opportunity. 

Bridgend community vaccination centre will be open on Saturday. 

The fourth venue, Ystrad, was not scheduled to vaccinate this weekend. 

As things stand, Merthyr Tydfil and Abercynon will re-open on Sunday (Jan 31), with all appointments due to go ahead as planned. 

The health board is closely monitoring the weather reports and latest information surrounding Sunday, and remains in constant dialogue with its Local Authority partners. 

If Sunday’s situation changes, an update statement will be released and posted on social media. 

Cwm Taf Morgannwg apologises for any inconvenience, but the safety of the vulnerable vaccination groups has to be the top priority.
