1 September 2021 - Hywel Dda vaccine bulletin - Issue 34

Welcome to issue 34 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.

All 16 and 17 year olds have now received their offer of a COVID-19 vaccine, with all appointments scheduled by the end of August. Walk-in clinics are also open in all Hywel Dda UHB mass vaccination centres (opens in new tab), offering the opportunity for those to get the vaccination at their convenience.

Appointments are being arranged for 12 to 15 year olds who are eligible for the vaccine as identified by the JCVI. If you are under 16, please do not attend a walk-in clinic. An appointment should be made by calling 0300 303 8322 or emailing COVIDenquiries.hdd@wales.nhs.uk

Taking up the offer of vaccination is important for everyone, especially for young people so that they are at lower risk of the effects of coronavirus now that we are able to socialise more.

We are now vaccinating:

 

Carmarthen mass vaccination centre relocation

On Friday 3 September, the mass vaccination centre based at the University of Wales Trinity St David’s Carmarthen campus will relocate from the Halliwell Conference Centre to the former Gamfa Wen Nursery on the same site. Signage will be in place to direct people to the new location. 

The centre will be closed until Sunday 5 September. Opening times for the centre in its new location at Gamfa Wen will be published on our website as soon as possible. See mass vaccination centres (opens in new tab) page for information.

 

Mass vaccination van update

Following the success of our mobile vaccination van in partnership with Mid and West Wales Fire and Rescue Service (opens in new tab), plans are in place to return to locations visited previously for people to receive their second vaccine dose. First doses will still be available from the mass vaccination van.

Further information regarding times and locations will be provided as soon as possible on our website, social media channels and local media.
