First Dose Appointment

Last updated 26 March 2021

This page is for frontline health and care workers who are eligible in Priority Group 2 but have not yet received your first dose. If your enquiry is about second dose appointments then please check our dedicated web pages on second dose appointments.

Frontline health and care workers working in Powys who meet certain eligibility criteria are in priority group 2 for COVID-19 vaccination:

  1. Providing health and care services in an employed capacity (please check our unpaid carers page if you are an unpaid carer and/or receive carers allowance)
  2. Able to demonstrate you are delivering intimate personal care on a regular basis to those who are defined by the JCVI as clinically vulnerable to COVID-19 (i.e. in one of the 9 priority groups defined by the JCVI).
  3. Able to demonstrate you are working in either secondary or primary/community care settings which can include independent, voluntary and non-standard healthcare settings such as hospices, and community-based mental health or addiction services.
  4. Able to confirm you are operationally working in Powys.

In line with the national COVID-19 vaccination strategy we have offered vaccination to everyone in Priority Groups 1 to 4 by mid February - but we recognise that in such a large vaccination programme some people may not have been contacted.

Please contact your employer for information about COVID-19 vaccination. Vaccination is available by appointment only.

  • More information about second dose appointments is available from our second dose pages.
  • More information about COVID-19 vaccination in Powys is available from our COVID-19 vaccination page.
  • More information about COVID-19 vaccination for unpaid carers (including those in receipt of benefits such as Carers Allowance) is available from our unpaid carers page.

If you are a frontline health & care worker who meets the criteria above, and your employer does not have information about COVID-19 vaccination in Powys, or if you are providing direct care in a self-employed capacity (e.g. via a direct payments scheme) you can use the form below to get in touch. If the form is not visible below on your browser you can also complete it online.
