COVID-19 Vaccination

Covid-19 Vaccine Logo
Coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccines have been approved for use in the UK and are available in Northern Ireland.

The COVID-19 vaccination programme is currently being delivered at  pop-up clinics and community pharmacies.

The vaccines have met strict standards of safety, quality and effectiveness set out by the independent Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA).

While vaccination may help protect you from coronavirus, it’s still important to follow social distancing guidance and other restrictions to keep each other safe.

Information materials on the COVID-19 Vaccination Programme are available for download here.

Please note, you will be asked to show photo ID, proof of date of birth and health care number when you arrive at the vaccination clinic. If you are not in an eligible group, you will not be given your vaccination.

    The pop-up clinic will then return eight weeks later to deliver the second vaccination in the same place and at the same time. (PLEASE CHECK BEFORE FOR ANY CHANGES)
