COVID-19 Vaccination – How to get a 2nd dose

 

If it has been 8 weeks or more since your first COVID-19 vaccination, then you can book your second vaccine.

 It is important to have both doses to get the best possible protection against COVID-19. It will also reduce the risk of you passing COVID-19 to anyone else.

 By having both doses of the vaccine we can make sure that we provide the body with the best protection against the virus

 To make an appointment for your second dose please call 119 or visit:

A Message from our Primary Care Team - System Pressures in Cornwall

All our health services are busy right now, especially our ambulance service and the emergency department team at Truro hospital.

 

You can play your part in supporting us to care for people with serious and life-threatening illnesses.

 

Did you know you know you can get help and advice by calling 111 or go online at 111.nhs.uk? You may not need to go and wait in our busy emergency department and could be directed to a minor injury unit which will be quicker and closer to home.

 

Only dial 999 for an ambulance in a genuine, life-threatening emergency, for example:

 

  • Chest pain / breathing difficulties / heart attack
  • Stroke
  • Severe bleeding
  • Severe allergic reactions
  • Severe burns or scalds
  • Serious head injuries
  • Major trauma such as a road traffic accident or a fall from height

 

If you have called for an ambulance, please do not ring again asking for a time of arrival. Only call again if:

 

  • The patient’s condition worsens
  • You no longer need our help

 

The call handlers must prioritise speaking to the most seriously injured and unwell patients.

 

If you don’t think it’s a serious or life-threatening emergency:

 

  • Call your own GP. Even if you are in Cornwall on holiday, you could get a phone or video consultation with your doctor at home.
  • Go online at 111.nhs.uk or call 111 to get expert advice and be signposted to where you can get the best and nearest care for your needs.
  • Ask a pharmacist for advice – they’re experts in treating minor health issues like colds, urinary infections, stomach upsets, aches and pains.

Thanks in advance for your assistance in this matter.


Thanks - Kirsty
