Alison Evans, Lead Clinical Nurse for Hywel Dda’s mass vaccination centres, said: “Following the confirmation last week by the First Minister that Wales is at the start of a third wave, we knew we needed to make it as easy as possible for people to access the vaccine.

“I am incredibly proud of all our vaccination teams across our centres who are working incredibly hard to make sure we are able to provide the vaccine people need, when they need it.

“If you haven’t had your first vaccine it is never too late; call in to your local centre and we will arrange this for you. We have plans in place to ensure we can vaccinate the majority of people there and then but if for any reason we can’t please be assured we will get a vaccine sorted for you as soon as possible.

“Our staff will also be more than happy to speak to anyone who is unsure if they want to have the vaccine and may have questions they want answers to before having one. We have friendly, expert teams across all our centres so please, if you have any doubts about having the vaccine, please call in to see us for a chat. We will answer any questions you may have so you can make the right decision for you.”
