'Hope' among NHS staff receiving Covid vaccine in Wales

Health and care workers were among more than 1,700 people across Wales to receive Covid-19 vaccinations on Tuesday.

And among them was care home worker Craig Atkins who said he hoped the rollout of vaccinations would enable residents to start to see visitors again.

Wendy Warren, head of emergency planning at Cwmbran stadium site in Torfaen where vaccines will be administered, said: "I don't want to be in this same position next year where children are walking around in masks."

Nurse Bethan Cox said: "There's a lot of hope out there now."

Critical care consultant Dr Ami Jones added: "What I hope is they don't say, 'oh, there's a vaccination now, we can throw caution to the wind and do what we want' because we are months away from that."
