Truro pharmacist goes bar hopping to get people jabbed

Chris Naidu from Reeds Pharmacy in Truro is visiting pubs, bars and shops to encourage workers to protect themselves against COVID-19 by popping along to his walk-in vaccination clinic.
The pharmacy at The Globe, Frances Street, is running a walk-in clinic from 9am to 4pm, tomorrow, Friday 3 until Sunday 4 July.

Cases of COVID-19 are rising across Cornwall, but getting vaccinated is one of the ways people can keep themselves and others safe.

Anyone who’s older than 18 and has not yet been vaccinated can get a dose of Pfizer or AstraZeneca at the pharmacy next to the Wig and Pen pub. And if you’re older than 40 and already had your first dose, you can bring forward your second from 12 weeks to 8 weeks. 

You don’t need to book an appointment, just turn up and get vaccinated.

NHS Kernow’s chairman Dr Paul Cook said: “Like everyone, I want to get back to doing the things we all loved doing before the pandemic struck, like going on holiday and seeing family.

“Cases of COVID are increasing in Cornwall. On Friday you can protect yourself at our pop-up clinic at Reed Pharmacy in Truro. You don’t have to book, just turn up and get your jab.

“Getting vaccinated not only protects you and your loved ones, but is our way out of this pandemic. Don’t delay, and do it for Cornwall.”

You can get details of all the walk-in vaccination clinics across Cornwall on our COVID-19 vaccine webpage.
