Welcome to issue 32 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, are attending the Pembrokeshire County Show this week.
The vaccination team will be able to offer first and second doses to anyone who would like their vaccine and will also be on hand to chat to people about the forthcoming flu programme.
We urgently need your help to ensure our stocks of Moderna are used.
From today (August 18), we are calling upon people who had their first dose of Moderna six weeks ago or more, to please come forward to receive their second dose.
If you haven’t had your first dose yet, and are aged 18 and over, please also come forward so we can use up all the vaccine available to us.
Please visit your nearest vaccination walk-in centre (opens in new tab) (no appointment necessary) to receive your dose. The centres are at Carmarthen Showground drive through, Pembrokeshire Archives, Dafen and Thomas Parry.
