Hywel Dda University Health Board (HDUHB) has extended the free shuttle bus service between Llanelli town centre and the mass vaccination centre in Dafen to help people access their COVID-19 vaccination as easily as possible.
The shuttle bus, provided by Dolen Teifi (opens in new tab), will continue to run between 10.30am to 4.40pm, seven days a week. Please note there will be no service at 12.00pm from town or at 12.15pm from the mass vaccination centre to allow the drivers a lunch break.
People can board the shuttle bus on the hour and at half-past the hour at Church Street, outside Llanelli Magistrates Court SA15 3AW (opens in new tab). The shuttle bus will leave the mass vaccination centre quarter past and quarter to the hour, returning to the town centre and dropping passengers off opposite Llanelli library.
Bethan Lewis, Interim Assistant Director of Public Health for Hywel Dda UHB, said: “We need as many people as possible attending their COVID-19 vaccine appointments, or dropping in if eligible.
“This shuttle bus service is one of many additional resources and services being put in place across the Hywel Dda region to help support more people to receive their COVID-19 vaccination. I am pleased the shuttle bus service has been extended to help people reliant on public transport to access their COVID-19 vaccine.”
On 21 February 2022, the JCVI published a statement, recommending an additional spring booster.
Strict COVID-19 safety measures will be in place to ensure the safety of drivers and passengers on this service:
