Van offering COVID vaccine starts in Newquay as part of jabathon

The NHS has teamed up with Cornwall ambulance service and the town council in Newquay for the start of a mobile COVID vaccine tour of Cornwall.
Anyone who is 18 and older and has not yet been vaccinated can receive their first dose of the Pfizer vaccine from the mobile van which will be parked at Killacourt, The Crescent, Newquay from 9.30am to 5.30pm on Monday 5 July 2021.

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

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, and 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.”

The NHS would like to thank Newquay Town Council for its support in providing the space for the mobile vaccine unit, which it is hoped will make it even easier for people to grab a jab.

The mobile vaccination unit will be visiting other locations across Cornwall throughout the week and you can keep up-to-date by visiting our COVID-19 vaccine dedicated webpage.
