Flu vaccination services

Get your flu jab and protect the NHS.

Getting your flu jab will help
protect the NHS…

No one wants an NHS overwhelmed this winter by FLU and Covid-19.

All patients should book their appointments through their practice as usual.

Three new drive-through flu vaccination sites across Cornwall:

  • Stithians Showground
  • Eden Project, St Austell
  • Royal Cornwall Showground, Wadebridge

Additional mobile sites for East Cornwall are being secured.

These facilities are part of a menu of flu vaccination delivery options available this autumn and winter for patients who are eligible for a flu jab and have been invited from a participating GP surgery or pharmacy.

Local help in a non-emergency

St Ewe Parish has responded to the Covid-19 pandemic using its Emergency Plan. A buddy system has been set up so that those needed to self-isolate can receive food, medicines and other supplies safely.

As Lockdown eases, there are many who will still need to self-isolate

  1. because of vulnerability to Covid-19 or
  2. because of Covid-19 symptoms.

Those who are self-isolating may need help with:

  1. picking up shopping
  2. urgent supplies
  3. posting mail
  4. a friendly phone call
