Appointments at the Covid Vaccination Center in Cornwall available

Cornwall’s NHS surpassed its goal of vaccinating 50,000 people against COVID-19 last week by putting 55,000 doses into the guns.

The goal is part of the desire to offer everyone 18 and over a jab booster before the end of the year.

It is also not too late for people to reserve their first or second dose if they have not yet received any protection.

Reservation reminder appointments are also available at Tintagel Medical Center, Bossinney Road, PL34 0AE, 8:30 am to 5:30 pm on Wednesday, December 22.

A walk-in clinic will be available at Camborne RFC, Cranberry Road, TR14 7PW on Monday, December 27 from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. for the first, second and booster doses.

Iain Davidson, Chief Pharmacist at Royal Cornwall Hospitals, said: ‘COVID-19 cases are starting to increase in Cornwall, and our NHS braces for a significant increase in cases in the coming weeks as Omicron becomes the variant dominant.

“With Christmas days ahead, there is still time to give yourself and your loved ones the best gift by getting vaccinated, especially if you plan to see friends and relatives, some of whom may be vulnerable.

“It takes 7 to 10 days for the vaccine to work fully, so the sooner you get vaccinated the better your protection against the Omicron variant.

“Our NHS is on a mission to vaccinate the 400,000 people in Cornwall who are eligible for a booster dose, as well as those who have not yet received a first vaccine or are due to receive their second vaccine before the end of the year – and While demand is high there are plenty of available dating and walk-in offers across Cornwall in the coming days and between Christmas and New Years.

“If you are worried that it will make you sick before the holidays, rest assured.

“Like any vaccine, most side effects are mild, resolve quickly, and are much milder than COVID-19 itself, which can potentially be fatal for someone with an underlying health condition.

“If you plan to see people during the holidays, remember to test yourself regularly, ventilate the rooms if you are meeting indoors, wear face covers in crowded places and indoors and to get vaccinated. ”

Dr Rob White, of Mount Hawke Surgery, said: “There was a huge demand last weekend, with a huge queue of people wanting to get their shots before Christmas.

“We saw 389 people on Saturday, but we crushed that on Sunday by vaccinating 453 people in 6 hours – a real achievement.

“Thank you to everyone who patiently waited to be seen, and to my amazing team who worked late to make sure everyone who showed up was seen, including several who showed up for their first dose.”

The practice will carry out the vaccination tomorrow (Wednesday 22) until 2 p.m. for appointments and without appointment by reservation.

The next Three Spiers and Lander practice clinic will be on Saturday, January 8, and patients will be contacted via text message with appointment details.
