COVID-19 vaccinations statistics - issue 21

Welcome to issue 21 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.

The collective efforts of primary care and mass vaccination centres saw the health board deliver the 400,000th vaccine delivered this week. This means 260,447 of our eligible population have now received a first vaccine and 147,439 have now received a full course.  

Thank you to everyone who has come forward for their vaccine to date. Our best defence against all strains of Covid-19 remains our impressive vaccination programme which is why we must do all we can to slow the spread of variants and allow time for as many people as possible to get their vaccination. It is even more important now to take up the offer of the first and second doses of the vaccine when offered.

The vaccines offer significant protection against severe disease, hospitalisation and death, which is why it’s vital to get both vaccine doses as soon as you are offered them.

We will leave no one behind. Everyone aged 18 or over or in JCVI priority groups 1 to 9 can now come forward to request a If you haven’t received an appointment yet or have changed your mind having turned down an offer of a vaccine previously, contact the health board as soon as possible so an appointment can be arranged for you.
