Local Member of the Senedd Paul Davies has challenged the First Minister over the Welsh Government’s Covid-19 vaccination strategy and the lack of a mass vaccination centre in Pembrokeshire. During First Minister’s Questions today (January 12th), Mr Davies asked why the roll out of the vaccine has fallen behind other UK nations to date and why Pembrokeshire is still without a vaccination centre, despite being home to a significant percentage of elderly people.
Mr Davies said, “The Welsh Government’s publication of a vaccine strategy is a welcome step forward but it’s clear that efforts need to be redoubled to speed up the delivery of vaccines in Pembrokeshire. Unfortunately, the County is still without a vaccination centre and in response to my question on the matter in the Senedd, the First Minister said he was confident that one would be established in the County. However, whilst that commitment is welcome, it’s just not enough – people need guarantees that a centre will be set up as quickly as possible. In the meantime, I’ll monitor the issue and continue to liaise with the Welsh Government and the local Health Board on this and ensure that it’s delivered as soon as possible.”
