COVID-19 vaccination update & statement from our local health board (BCUHB)
We would like to urge anyone wishing to have their second dose of the ASTRA ZENECA vaccine to contact Tywyn Health Centre to book your appointment ASAP.
We only have one clinic left on 7th July for second doses only.
You can book via the website contact form or call 03000 843200.
The following information is from the most recent BCUHB COVID-19 vaccination update:
“Vaccine protection against the Delta variant
According to latest data from Public Health England, a single dose of the COVID-19 vaccine reduces a person’s chances of catching coronavirus and needing hospital treatment by about 75 per cent, even with Delta circulating.
And among people who had received the recommended two doses, the chances of catching and being hospitalised by coronavirus was reduced by more than 90 per cent.
How to book your appointment
Our online booking service has made it easier than ever to book a first or second dose appointment at a convenient date, time and location.
In the last week alone, more than 108,000 people have visited the service.
Vaccination clinics are being held in locations across North Wales and by the end of this week, we will have added appointments available until August.
In recent weeks we have significantly increased the speed at which we are administering second doses, in response to the threat posed by the Delta variant.
Please remember, if a minimum of eight weeks have passed since you had your first dose of either the Pfizer or AstraZeneca vaccine, you can book a second dose appointment for the same brand vaccine using our online booking service.
Already have a second dose appointment booked and wish to bring it forward using our online booking service? There is no need to contact us to cancel your original appointment – our records will automatically update.
If you cannot access the internet to book online, please phone our COVID-19 Vaccination Contact Centre on 03000 840004. The lines can be very busy, so please be patient.
Worried about having the vaccine?
If you have any concerns about receiving the vaccine, please book and attend your appointment, so we can take the time to discuss them with you, before you decide whether to go ahead.
Please join us on the North Wales Live Facebook page this Thursday at 17:30, where a panel of our staff will address common concerns about the COVID-19 vaccine with Local Democracy Reporter, Jez Hemming.
Remember, you can also find trusted, up to date information on the COVID-19 vaccine on the Public Health Wales website.”
