Grab a Jab #DoItForCornwallwall!

With all adults over the age of 18 now eligible to receive their Covid vaccine, we’re asking you to make sure you continue to #DoItForCornwall and sign-up to receive both your vaccinations as soon as you can.  

Booking your first jab

It’s never been easier to get your first vaccine, with pop-up clinics in Falmouth, Camborne and Newquay and walk-in appointments available at vaccine sites in Cornwall for everyone aged 18 and over. Visit the NHS Kernow website for regularly updated information.

Booking your second jab

If you’re over 40, you can bring your second appointment forward from 12 to 8 weeks by calling 119 or using the national booking service. You’ll need to cancel and rebook your existing appointment, but you won’t lose your chance for an appointment by doing this. 

Let’s keep up the good work, register to receive both vaccines and #DoItForCornwall, together.

Are you eligible for a test and trace support payment?

If you’re on a low income, and you’ve been asked to self-isolate by NHS Test and Trace or the NHS COVID-19 app, you may be eligible to receive a test and trace support payment of £500. 

These payments are available to those on low incomes who also meet the following conditions: 

  • are employed or self-employed,
  • and you cannot work from home and will lose income by self-isolating
If you're a parent or guardian on a low income, you can now get support if:
  • you are not legally required to self-isolate yourself, but
  • need to take time off work to look after a child or young person who is self-isolating
Applications must be made during the period of self-isolation, or within 42-days of the self-isolation period coming to an end.

Covid advice and support for local businesses - free webinar

We're working to provide extra help, support and advice to businesses, especially in the hospitality sector, to support business continuity and keep them open safely.

We are currently planning our next session. On Thursday, we hosted a webinar aimed at advising businesses on what actions they need to take if they have positive cases among staff.

If you weren't able to make the session on the day, you can watch the recording back on the Business Regulatory Service website.

Minor medical issue? Speak to your pharmacist

As qualified healthcare professionals, pharmacists can offer you clinical advice and over-the-counter medicines for a range of minor illnesses, such as coughs, colds, sore throats, tummy trouble and aches and pains. 

If symptoms suggest it's something more serious, they also have the right training to make sure you get the help you need. 

Don’t wait for minor health concerns to get worse – speak to your local pharmacy team over the phone, online or in person* to get advice.  

Help the NHS, help you.  

*Please don't visit your pharmacy in-person if you, or someone you know, have Covid symptoms.

Have your say on physical activity in later life

If you’re over 55, we’re inviting you to take part in a short survey to have your say on how we can improve support for people to become and stay physically active in later life. 

We're doing this because we'd like to understand how we can create and improve opportunities which help people to stay fit and well for longer.

We’re particularly interested in hearing about some of the stereotypes faced by older adults, so that we can make sure that any information we offer is as diverse, inclusive and empowering as possible.

No.
