The Aneurin Bevan University Health Board (ABUHB) has administered 111,627 coronavirus vaccine doses.
What area does ABUHB cover?
The ABUHB area covers the whole of Caerphilly County Borough, as well as Torfaen, Blaenau Gwent, Newport, Monmouthshire and part of Powys.
A mass vaccination centre is currently up and running at Newbridge Leisure Centre.
Councillor Philippa Marsden, leader of Caerphilly County Borough Council, urged residents who have been invited for a vaccine to take up the offer.
After visiting the vaccination centre, Cllr Marsden said: “I can assure you from what I’ve just seen it will be a safe, well-managed and stress-free process. I would like to thank all involved for their efforts.
“Remember, you do not need to do anything in order to get the vaccination. All eligible residents will be contacted with an appointment, so there is no need to ring your GP, health board or the council to make enquiries.”
Resident Irene Williams, who received her vaccine at Newbridge Leisure Centre, contacted Caerphilly Observer to “congratulate everyone there for running such an efficient service”.
Ms Williams said: “There were about 20 people in front of me, but I was seen within about five minutes. The staff were friendly, caring and had such a positive attitude that I left there feeling much happier than when I arrived.
“It was a really well-oiled machine and showed the NHS at its best. Thanks also to the army who were also marvellous.”
This week, bus operator Stagecoach launched a new bus service to and from the vaccination centre.
