The Welsh Government has outlined its winter covid and flu vaccination plans, as cases continue to rise.

The new campaign will see all eligible individuals will be offered a COVID vaccine by the end of November and a flu vaccine by the end of December.

The Welsh Government is hoping to achieve at least 75% uptake of both vaccines.

The COVID-19 autumn booster will be available to residents and staff working in care homes for older adults, frontline health and social care workers, all those aged 50 and over, and those aged 5 to 49 years in clinical risk groups, including pregnant women and household contacts of people with immunosuppression or carers aged 16 to 49.

The flu vaccine will once again be available to all those at risk, including adults aged 50 and over in Wales, children between the ages of 2 and 15, frontline health and social care staff, including those working in care homes and people aged 6 months to 49 years in a clinical risk group.

Both COVID-19 and flu vaccinations will be available for everyone who is 50 and over following the latest JCVI advice.

Those eligible for a COVID-19 autumn booster will be invited when it is their turn. Those eligible for a flu vaccine may already be familiar with arrangements for getting their vaccine. Information about eligibility and how to get a flu vaccine is available on the Public Health Wales website.

Eluned Morgan, Minister for Health and Social Services, said: "We are once again seeing an increase in COVID-19 cases and increased pressure on our NHS. We expect both COVID-19 and flu to circulate widely this winter and must be prepared for much higher or unseasonal flu activity.

"Vaccination is a vital tool for us all to protect ourselves and others as we learn how to live with COVID-19. This strategy sets out our plans for autumn-winter 2022-2023 and how we will offer both the flu and COVID-19 vaccines to those eligible, while being prepared to increase our capacity quickly, should we need to, in response to any future significant coronavirus pandemic wave or a new variant.

"I want to maximise the uptake of both flu and COVID-19 vaccines for everyone who is eligible, and we will continue to work to ensure no-one is left behind. Getting vaccinated when you are invited is a decision we can all take to protect ourselves, our families, and our communities, I encourage everyone to take up their appointments this autumn to protect yourselves and keep Wales safe."
