    Think they are aiming for everyone over 70 to be done by mid feb
    That totals about 750k people. They need to average about 20k a day to get to their target.

    Just over half of that today - around 11,000.

    Across Wales there are 750k people in the top 4 priority groups for receiving the vaccine.

    There's probably around 75k people over 70 in cardiff and vale health board area, which would require each of their GP practices immunizing 60 people a day (mon-fri) until the middle of february.
    that doesn't seem unreasonable, thats a vaccine every 8 minutes or so.

    When I had my flu jab at my GPs surgery the nurse told me she had a fairly easy afternoon with just 40 to do. So 60 in a day seems reasonable.

    We've been told, that Thornhill Surgery has 50 vaccinations in TOTAL.

    112973 vaccinations as at yesterday 11602 more than the day before.
    So ramping up, may get to Thornhill in next couple of years.

    To be fair Thornhill's quite small isn't it?

    That is a stunningly stupid thing to say publicly, even if they have to do it for logistical or any other reason.

    Also why do that have to have a "Trail" of Pharmasies giving injections, and why is it only starting today or later? It should be up and running.

    If that is the reason, it would have been good if he’d said so because, as it is stands, it’s hard to see any sense in the decision.

    I’ve lost track of the vaccines figure lately, but I think it might be around 15,000.

    I cannot find the live vid of he speaking. Does anyone have a link. It seems he was only talking about use of the pfiser vaccine not the oxford one, but if that is so andso many people can misinterpret what he said it is still stupid

    I think the confidence of the Welsh public in Drakeford’s ability to roll out the vaccine is dwindling by the minute.

    “We won’t get another delivery of the Pfizer vaccine until the very end of January or maybe the beginning of February, so that 250,000 doses of vaccine has got to last us six weeks”.

    What on earth is he saying here? If you’ve got a quarter of a million doses of vaccine then what you do is stick them in the arms of high risk Welsh people as soon as humanly possible 24/7 and if you’ve used them all up in a few days then that is a very good thing!
