Register to receive a vaccination at short notice

Anyone who has not yet received a date for their vaccination from the Powys Health Board but is in one of the priority groups can notify the Health Board that they are able to go at very short notice should there be a last minute gap in the schedule.

If you would like to register your availability please let the Powys Health Board Covid call handling team know by phoning 03456 027 053 between 8:00am and 4:00pm. They will ask for your name, NHS number and phone number. They will then contact you should an opportunity arise for you to receive your vaccination at short notice.

At the moment it is likely that this facility is just for the over 70’s but that is not certain.

We know of several members who have already received their vaccination through this method.  We understand that you would need to be able to get to the special centre that has been set up on the Royal Welsh showground at Builth Wells within a short while of being called.
