Face masks and social distancing: Due to the rising prevalence of COVID-19 in our communities, we strongly encourage healthcare staff and visitors to wear a face covering in all of our settings, particularly in clinical areas and those with high footfall. Please exercise a common-sense approach and personal responsibility to help us reduce the impact of COVID-19 on our patients, workforce and services. In addition to wearing a face covering, it is important to continue to maintain social distancing where possible. Thank you for your continued support and co-operation at this time. We continue to regularly review our advice based on prevalence in our communities and our hospitals.

COVID-19 vaccines: advice for Black, Asian and minority ethnic communities

A man wearing a face covering is being given his COVID-19 vaccination by a GP.

Skip to the FAQs for answers to some of the most important questions you have around the vaccines, and links to further advice from official sources.

Swansea Bay’s COVID-19 vaccination programme is now well underway and we are encouraging everyone to get their vaccine when they are offered an appointment.

Follow this link for more information on how COVID-19 vaccinations are being rolled out across the Swansea and Neath Port Talbot area, including when you are likely to receive your vaccine.

We are already seeing a lower uptake of the vaccine in our Black, Asian and minority ethnic (BAME) communities but it’s very important that everyone is vaccinated, to protect you, your family, friends and community are from the coronavirus.

On this page you’ll find links to lots of information that will help you make an informed decision about the COVID-19 vaccine. Some of our BAME doctors, nurses and other health board staff, along with community leaders, have also stepped forward to talk about why they have decided to get the vaccine, and why you should too.
