Hywel Dda University Health Board (UHB) is asking anyone living in Carmarthenshire, Ceredigion and Pembrokeshire who is eligible for a spring COVID-19 booster vaccination to take up their offer by the deadline of Friday, 30 June 2023.
People aged 75 years and over, residents in care homes for older people and those aged 5 years and over with a weakened immune system are eligible for a spring booster.
Please call 0300 303 8322 and choose option 1 or email firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible to book an appointment.
Bethan Lewis, Interim Assistant Director of Public Health for Hywel Dda UHB, said: “COVID-19 continues to be more serious in older people and those with certain health conditions.
“It is important to have your booster because, like some other vaccines, levels of protection may begin to reduce over time. The booster will help protect you for longer. It will also help to reduce the risk of you needing to go to hospital due to COVID-19 infection.”
The offer of the initial two dose universal primary course of vaccine, offered from December 2020 to all the population aged over 5, will also end on 30 June 2023.
To book an appointment, or if you have any questions about your COVID-19 vaccine eligibility, please call Hywel Dda University Health Board’s Communications Hub on 0300 303 8322 or email email@example.com.
