Vaccinations at Venue Cymru, general info. Updated 10th May.

 

Covid-19 vaccinations at Ysbyty Enfys / Venue Cymru, Llandudno LL30 1BB

8am to 8pm, seven days a week.
Up to 1200 people per day can be vaccinated per day with Pfizer, or 1700 per day with Astra-Zeneca.

I received an invitation by post for my first vaccination, two weeks before the due date.

I was given Pfizer vaccine.  Astra-Zeneca and Pfizer vaccines are given on different days, to avoid any mixup.

Free parking at Venue Cymru main car park.  Parking on the Promenade is for NHS staff only.

The Main Entrance to Venue Cymru from the Promenade is not in use.
You should arrive at the car park no more than five minutes before your appointment, and arrive at the hospital entrance from the car park on your own  (unless you need a helper) on time (My first appointment was at 17.33 precisely on Sunday 9th Feb 2021).  If you do arrive early, you can wait in the B & Q car park nearby.

Do remember where you’ve parked.

Wear a mask.

Toilets are available.

I was in the building for about an hour for the first appointment and 45 minutes for the second, following the queue along a clear line of footprints to various check desks, and into the vaccination arena. The vaccinations were followed by a 15-minute sit-down in the arena after Pfizer, or a 15-minute recommended wait in your car after Astra-Zeneca.

The exits from the building and from the car park are next to the swimming pool.

The setup was very impressive and well-organized, and everybody was very friendly.  Supported by RAF personnel and local volunteers.

My second appointment was six weeks later on Tuesday 23rd March at 13.06, followed by a walk along the Promenade and fish and chips.  I was notified by post two weeks before.  You can choose to be notified by post, telephone or text message at your first appointment.
The second appointment is quicker than the first, because there is less admin work.

All highly recommended!

Feedback….
Bore da Peter,
Just want to say thank you for your updates on the vaccination procedure at Venue Cymru. I had my first jab there yesterday. The invitation letter didn’t contain any practical details like where to park, what time to turn up etc, so your notes were extremely helpful. My appointment was at 16:30 and the whole process was very efficient – I was in and out of the building in 15 minutes. Hope your second jab goes just as smoothly today.
DP, Rowen
