A new mass vaccination centre has opened at Friars Walk.

A spokesperson from the Aneurin Bevan University Health Board said:  “The former Debenhams site has been agreed for us to use as a Mass Vaccination Centre, this will enable us to continue our Mass Vaccination delivery in Newport. This site was considered due to its size, accessibility and being close to our former Newport Mass Vaccination Centre.  The site will enable those in Newport eligible for their Covid-19 Autumn Booster and Flu vaccinations to have their vaccines locally. We urge everyone eligible for the Autumn Booster or Flu vaccinations to take the offer of their vaccine to protect themselves and their loved ones this winter.’

Simon Pullen, Centre Director at Friars Walk added: ‘We are very pleased to be working with the University Health Board to host such an important community-focussed service in the heart of the city centre.’
