Vaccination - #DoItForCornwall

COVID infection rates are rising steeply in Cornwall. Evidence shows that the new Delta variant spreads more easily than other strains. In addition, symptoms can be like a cold, so many people don’t realise they’re infected.

Cornwall's Public Health team is reminding us all that being vaccinated could save your life and will help to protect other people too.

Anyone in Cornwall over the age of 18 who hasn't yet been vaccinated is invited to drop in to the large vaccination centres at Stithians and Wadebridge showgrounds this Sunday between 10am and 6pm. There's no need to book an appointment.

There's also a drop-in clinic for St Ives on Saturday from 2:30pm to 5pm at the Guildhall but this one does need to be booked in advance. 

We're want to remind people that we are still at Stage 3 of England's roadmap out of lockdown, which means the public health guidance is hands, face, space and fresh air.

Feeling ill? It's your GP first then 111

  • If you need health advice for something not life critical, please call your GP. If you’re in Cornwall on holiday, call your own GP, not the one closest to where you’re staying.
  • If you need urgent health advice when your GP surgery is shut, and if it can’t wait, call 111 or visit 111.nhs.uk. Trained health advisors can help, and may recommend you visit a minor injury unit, urgent care centre, a pharmacist, or arrange a call with a clinician.
  • Call 111 for minor injuries like broken bones, sprains, strains, insect bites, burns, and deep cuts. Please do not head to a minor injury unit without calling 111 first. This is to help control the numbers of people inside the units to keep everyone safe, and maintain social distancing.
  • If you have a life-threatening condition such as a heart attack, breathing difficulties, a stroke, severe loss of blood or are unconscious, please call 999.
  • Please do not head go to our emergency departments unless you need help for something that is urgent and life-threatening care.

Pharmacists can provide advice and treatment for minor ailments including hayfever, insect bites, water infections, sticky red eyes, and sunburn.
