Welcome to issue 31 of Hywel Dda University Health Board’s Vaccine Bulletin.
This weekly update will provide the latest information regarding the progress of the COVID-19 Mass Vaccination Programme across Carmarthenshire, Ceredigion and Pembrokeshire.
Our mobile vaccination van, in partnership with Mid and West Wales Fire and Rescue Service, will be attending the Pembrokeshire County Show on 18 and 19 August.
Wales’ largest county show is back for 2021 for participants and society members only, hosting equine, livestock and various other competitions.
The fire service is providing one of its vehicles and members of the team will also be in attendance to provide general community safety advice, including about home safety.
Bethan Lewis, Interim Assistant Director of Public Health at Hywel Dda UHB, said: “It is a big boost to have the Pembrokeshire County Show back this year for participants.
“The vaccine rollout has spanned some of the busiest times for the farming community so we’re thrilled to be able to attend the show and provide easy access to a vaccine to those attending.”
Ian John, Board Member of Pembrokeshire Agricultural Society, said: ““We are looking forward to welcoming participants and members of the society to this year’s slimmed down County Show. We are pleased that Hywel Dda Health Board will be attending with a mobile COVID-19 vaccination van to continue their vital work.”
