In the wake of Boris Johnson’s address to the nation launching his “Omicron emergency booster national mission”, find out how you can get jabbed in Cornwall.

In a pre-recorded address to the nation on Sunday, the Prime Minister said Britain “must urgently reinforce our wall of vaccine protection” as he set a new deadline of jabbing everyone over 18 by the new year.

In light of the news, we have created a guide on how to get your Covid vaccination in Cornwall.

While options for walk-in clinics are limited in Cornwall, a few do exist, and more locations are available if you book. 

Extra sessions are also being added in Helston, it was revealed on Tuesday: Helston Covid vaccine clinic to extend to five days a week - volunteers needed


Who can book a Covid booster vaccination

Every adult over 18 in England who has had a second dose of a vaccine at least three months ago will be able to have their booster from Monday.

The NHS booking system will be open for those under the age of 30 from Wednesday but the Prime Minister said “in some cases you can walk in from tomorrow”.

How to book a COVID-19 vaccination

People can get their vaccine online through the National Booking Service or by calling 119, with some GP practices also inviting those who are eligible to get in touch.

The online booking service is currently facing extremely high demand and is now operating a queuing system.

The site states: “If you're unable to book now, please try again later today or tomorrow.”

People aged 18 to 29 years old who are not already in a higher risk group cannot book a booster dose using this service yet and will have to wait until Wednesday, December 15 to do so.

Walk-in vaccination centres

Walk-in vaccination sessions mean you don’t need an appointment, and you can simply turn up to receive your vaccination.

Currently, this service is mainly offering first and second vaccinations, so it’s important to check the details of the centre you intend to visit if you are looking to receive your booster.
