THE first Oxford University/AstraZeneca Covid-19 vaccinations were delivered by GP practices in the Hywel Dda area today (Wednesday, January 6) to people aged 80 years and over.

Mrs Margaret Stevens, aged 92, from Llanelli was very happy to be one of the first patients in the community to receive her vaccine as well as Bury Port resident Mr Clifford Jones, aged 85.

A Hywel Dda spokesperson said: “More surgeries across Ceredigion, Pembrokeshire and Carmarthenshire are getting prepared to vaccinate patients, who are 80 and over, in the coming days and weeks.

“We’d like to assure those in this priority group (80 and over) that they will be contacted by their GP to arrange a vaccine appointment. Please don’t contact your GP or pharmacist. Thank you to everyone for their patience at this time.”

Staff at Tenby Surgery received the vaccine and are making preparations to start vaccinating their patients from Saturday by vaccinating the vaccinators.
