“Ers hynny rydym wedi gweld ymateb ysgubol gan ein cymunedau ar draws y tair sir sydd wedi dod yng nghanol stormydd, eira, glaw a heulwen i gael eu brechlyn.

“Mae ein diolch i’ch ymdrechion chi, yn ystod yr hyn a fu’n aeaf anodd i’r mwyafrif, bod derbyniadau i’n hysbytai yn lleihau a nifer y marwolaethau o Coronafeirws sy’n cael eu riportio yn parhau i fod yn isel iawn.

“Tra bod y brechlyn yn rhoi gobaith inni i’r dyfodol, rhaid i ni barhau i weithredu i atal lledaeniad coronafeirws yn y gymuned a pharhau i ddilyn canllawiau COVID-19 ar ymbellhau cymdeithasol a gwisgo gorchudd wyneb i amddiffyn y rhai o’nch cwmpas.”

Hywel Dda University Health Board (UHB) is asking eligible people living in Carmarthenshire, Ceredigion or Pembrokeshire to get in touch if they have not received a first COVID vaccine appointment.

The health board’s mass vaccination programme is on track to offer everyone in priority groups 1 to 9 a first vaccine dose by Sunday 18 April.

If one or more of the following applies to you and you have not received your first vaccine appointment, please contact the health board on 0300 303 8322 or by email COVIDenquiries.hdd@wales.nhs.uk by Friday 16 April:

are aged 50 or over
are aged 16 to 64 and have underlying health conditions that put you at increased risk of COVID-19 mortality
work in a care home or in health and social care in Carmarthenshire, Ceredigion or Pembrokeshire
are the primary unpaid carer of an elderly or disabled adult who is at increased risk of COVID-19 mortality, or a child with severe neuro-disabilities
Please do not contact your GP practice or the health board at this time to ask about your second vaccine appointment. You will be contacted when it is your turn.

Chief Executive Steve Moore encourages people to get in touch to secure their first vaccine dose: “When we administered the first vaccine in early December it cannot be understated what a significant moment that was in this pandemic.

“Since then we have seen an overwhelming response from our wonderful communities across the three counties who have turned up in storms, snow, rain and sunshine to receive their vaccine.

“It is thanks to your efforts over what has been a difficult winter for most that admissions to our hospitals are reducing, and thankfully, numbers of deaths from Coronavirus being reported continues to stay very low.

“While the vaccine gives us hope for the future, we must still act to prevent the spread of coronavirus in the community and continue to follow the COVID-19 guidance of social distancing and face coverings to protect those around you.”

The health board has put in place transport support for anyone who may have difficulty attending their vaccination appointment. If you have no other means of travel, please mention this when you contact us to book your appointment and we will be happy to assist.
