Thursday saw another 250 care home residents vaccinated in Powys across nine different care homes.
Among them was The Grove residential home in Ystradgynlais who were vaccinated by the Ystradgynlais District Nursing Team.
Thelma Davey was the first resident in the home to receive the vaccine from District Nurse Melissa James.
Our thanks go out to all of our staff who are working so incredibly hard across the county to bring the COVID vaccination to as many people as possible as quickly as possible.
This is a huge undertaking involving staff from across all disciplines and departments.
We know how keen people are to be vaccinated and ask you to bear with us. We are experiencing very high call volumes to our call centres and are booking people in as quickly as we can. If your call is disconnected this is because all lines are busy, please do call back.
