Norfolk and Waveney CCG are providing an opportunity for people to talk about any concerns that they have about getting a COVID vaccination. Their ‘Worry Bus’ will be at UEA Sportspark in Norwich this Saturday (7th August) and then on Sunday 15th August.
They will have a range of people available on the day to help and support you or the person you care for. This includes people from Norfolk Community Health and Care NHS Trust (including their Learning Disability nurses), Norfolk and Suffolk NHS Foundation Trust’s wellbeing service and serious mental illness teams, and St John’s Ambulance attending on the day.
The site has been chosen as it has great parking and space enough for two buses and two gazebos. This gives an opportunity for you to speak in a quiet place away from others if you prefer, and for them to provide one-to-one personalised support and vaccines.
Pfizer vaccines (first and second doses) will be available but there will be no pressure if people come, chat and choose not to have one…
This would be an ideal opportunity for you or the person you care for talk through any concerns they have about having your vaccination, including anyone who has generalised anxiety, needle phobia, agoraphobia (plus many other issues).
They can cater for people with learning disabilities on the day.
If you email your phone number, age and postcode they can also get someone from a local drop in clinic to speak to you over the phone before you decide whether you want to go – just email email@example.com
