Following a growing number of complaints about people aged 65-69 not being offered the Covid-19 vaccine, Clwyd South MS Ken Skates has issued a statement about the situation.
It says: "After the news last week that Wales had reached its first target ahead of schedule, vaccination of the next set of priority groups is already under way locally.
"The First Minister has been clear that the temporary drop in UK supply had already been planned for in Wales and that the reduction will affect the whole of the UK - not just Wales or our area.
"We have factored this into our vaccination plans - it won’t affect planned appointments and it won’t delay when people are due to get their second dose.
"The Welsh Government will continue to do everything it can to continue leading the way on vaccine roll-out and to achieve our next targets on time.
"The well-publicised temporary supply issues affecting the UK are short-term and we will soon be able to begin ramping up the roll-out again to the kind of significant daily numbers we have been seeing regularly until recently.
"We remain confident of similar success with the next phase of the roll-out if the UK Government is able to deliver our supplies."
