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.
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.
On this page you will find answers to the most relevant COVID-19 vaccine questions for BAME community members.
An innovative idea has been used to help address lower rates of COVID vaccination take up in black, Asian and minority ethnic (BAME) communities.
