COVID pop-up vaccination clinic to run at the St Ives Guildhall

Vaccinators have joined forces with the town council to offer a pop-up COVID vaccination clinic in St Ives.
The Atlantic Medical Group is running the pop-up clinic at the St Ives Guildhall between 2pm and 5.30pm on Saturday 26 June.

Appointments for both first and second doses at the pop-up must be booked by logging on to the national NHS booking service, or calling 119 free of charge.

To date vaccinators from the Atlantic Medical Group have given approximately provided 33,000 doses of the vaccine to people living in and around Penzance, including to fishermen and farmers at earlier pop-up clinics.

Tracey Hembrough, Atlantic Medical Group nurse partner, said: “We’re really pleased to be able to offer the pop-up clinic on Saturday as part of our continued efforts to make it as easy as possible for everyone in and around Penzance to have their COVID vaccination.

“We would like to extend our thanks to St Ives Town Council and Emma Gibson, cultural services manager, for working with us to get this service up and running so quickly.”

Other vaccination services are available across Cornwall.

Adults aged 40 and over can also receive their second dose of the vaccine sooner – reducing the wait from 12 weeks to 8 weeks.
