Grab a jab and get protected
It’s never been easier for people to get their first COVID-19 vaccination with pop-up clinics in Falmouth, Camborne and Newquay and walk-in appointments now available at vaccination sites in Cornwall for everyone aged 18 and over. Find out the latest on www.kernowccg.nhs.uk.
Please continue to encourage people who haven’t already had their first jab to get theirs this weekend and protect themselves from COVID-19.
Anyone who is older than 40 and waiting for their second jab can bring forward their appointment from 12 to 8 weeks by calling 119 or using the national online booking service.
You’ll need to cancel your existing appointment for a second jab and rebook for an earlier one. Don’t worry, you won’t lose your chance for an appointment by doing this.
Let’s do it for Cornwall
As well as being vaccinated, one of the main ways we can get rates of COVID back down in Cornwall is for us all to make twice-weekly testing part of our regular routine. The symptoms of the Delta variant can be like a cold, so many people don’t realise they’re infected.
You can pick up free tests from local testing sites and pharmacies or order online. Here’s how to get your free tests.
If you’re asked to self-isolate
Cornwall Council has put together a free information pack for anyone who has questions about self-isolating. The pack explains what you need to do, what support is available, and if and how you may be entitled to apply for financial support. Download a self-isolation information pack.
The pack is also available in:
If you’ve been told to self-isolate by the national Test and Trace service, you may receive a follow up call from Cornwall Council local case review service. It’s nothing to worry about. The Our case review service page on Cornwall Council’s website explains what will happen.
