Get vaccinated

Wrexham now has the second highest coronavirus rate in Wales, and the Delta variant is spreading rapidly.

Hospital cases remain low at the moment (some good news), but with all the disruption that comes with having to self-isolate, the situation isn’t great.

Lots of people are being affected, including schoolchildren, and our daily lives are still fraught with complications.

It feels like Ground Hog Day, and the only way out of this – once and for all – is to vaccinate as many people as possible, as quickly as possible.

If you’re eligible, this includes you.

You need two doses for the best protection, and if you haven’t had both doses yet, don’t hang about.

Please get yourself sorted asap. Get vaccinated.

Pop-up clinics

The NHS is using pop-up clinics in North Wales. No appointment needed – just walk in and get a jab.

They’re usually arranged at short notice and promoted on social media (keep tabs on the local health board Twitter feed).

You’re less likely to end up in hospital

In this week’s update from Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board, Area Director Ffion Johnstone says:

“What we’ve seen so far is that having just one dose of the vaccine significantly reduces the chances of someone being admitted to hospital with Covid-19.

“This is why it’s so important that anyone who hasn’t yet taken the opportunity to get vaccinated does so as soon as possible – especially with the Delta variant circulating.

“For those who’ve received the recommended two doses, the chances of catching and being hospitalised by Covid-19 is reduced by more than 90 per cent.”

Get back to normal

Councillor Hugh Jones, Wrexham Council’s Lead Member for Communities, Partnerships, Public Protection and Community Safety, says:

“By getting vaccinated, you’re not only helping to protect yourself and others – you’re helping Wales and the rest of the UK move to a situation where fewer people become seriously ill and we can learn to live with the virus.

“So even if you feel invincible, you should still get vaccinated as soon as possible.

“If we want to return to a more normal life, vaccination is the only way we can do it.”

Booking a Covid-19 vaccine appointment is now easier than ever.
