Health board and fire service partner for vaccine rollout

A mobile COVID-19 vaccination clinic will be operating in Cross Hands in Carmarthenshire this week following a partnership between Hywel Dda University Health Board (UHB) and Mid and West Wales Fire and Rescue Service.

The fire service is providing one of its vehicles from which Hywel Dda UHB staff will deliver the vaccine to anyone aged 18 and over that requires either a first or second dose. Appointments will not be necessary.

The mobile vaccination clinic will be based at the Leekes car park and will operate daily from Thursday 1 to Saturday 3 July (11am to 6pm).

Members of the fire service will also be in attendance to provide the public with general community safety advice, including about home safety. They will be joined by the health board’s Community Development Outreach team, which is reaching out to ethnic minority people living in Carmarthenshire to help them during the COVID-19 pandemic, support community cohesion, and remove barriers to accessing services.

With the rise in cases across the UK, Hywel Dda UHB is urging as many people as possible to come forward for their first and second doses.

There is no need to contact the health board to book an appointment, but if anyone wished to schedule an appointment they can by calling 0300 303 8322 or emailing [email protected]
