COVID-19 vaccine

Grab a jab in Cornwall

No need to book, just turn up and grab a jab at any of the sites listed below.

If our walk-in clinics are busy, please try to pop back later in the day. They’re often quieter at the end of each session. Please be patient and kind to staff whilst you wait. If it’s too busy, we may have to close the clinic early to keep you and our staff safe. Don’t forget, you can also book your COVID vaccination. This way you will get a time slot to attend and won’t have to wait.

You do not need to be registered with a GP to use a walk-in site.

You can use a walk-in site to get a:

  • first dose of the vaccine if you or your child are aged 12 or older (selected vaccination sites only, please check site details before attending)

Anyone attending an appointment at the vaccine centre will be greeted by volunteers who will marshal car parks and register them when they arrive. The centre has been organised to allow for social distancing.

They will receive a health check and a pre-vaccination assessment before the vaccine, and then be observed for 15 minutes afterwards.

Those who requires extra support from a carer should have them attend the appointment but is asked this is kept to a maximum of 1 other person to maintain social distancing. Wheelchairs will be available for anyone who requires them, and disabled parking is available on site.

People attending their appointments should wear loose clothing to provide vaccinators easy access to the arm, and flat shoes.

Please ask someone, wherever possible, to drive you to and from the site. This will allow you to receive your jab and return to your day as quickly as possible, and will mean more people can be vaccinated at the centre.
