Making the vaccine rollout process accessible

Wales Council of the Blind has joined with RNIB Cymru and Guide Dogs Cymru to call on the Welsh Government to ensure that the rollout of Covid 19 vaccinations is accessible to people with sight loss.

This includes ensuring that communications are sent in accessible formats, and that venues are set up correctly, with clear signage. You can find out more here.

The 'Advice for staff involved with administrating the Coronavirus vaccine to blind and partially sighted people' issued by the three charities can be read here.

An invitation to Low Vision Service Wales Patients

If you have been a Low Vision Service Wales (LVSW) patient, we would like to hear about your experience of the Service so that we can make the right steps to improve it for others. Your opinion of the Service matters to us so we would be delighted if you could get in touch.

A meeting will take place on Thursday, 28th January at 2.00 pm using Zoom. You will be able to also join the meeting via your telephone. If you would like to join the meeting please contact Owen Williams, Wales Council of the Blind, by email at or by calling 029 2047 3954.

Covid-19 vaccine: scam warning

There is a warning that scammers and criminals are trying to trick people regarding the Covid-19 vaccine. The NHS don’t need your bank details and won’t ask for them in a phone call, email or text, and vaccines are NOT being delivered door-to-door.

There is no need to pay to find out your place in the queue for the vaccine. If you receive such a request or message you should hang up, and report it by sending an email to or forwarding the text to 7726.
