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 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.

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.

  • Vaccination Clinics for 5-11 Year Olds

    Parents of children aged 5 to 11 years old can now get their children vaccinated against Covid-19.

    Most children aged 5 to 11 will have a mild disease if they contract Covid-19 but some may experience symptoms which last longer than just a few days. Vaccination of children in this age group has been shown to help prevent the small number of hospitalisations and intensive care admissions that can occur in this age group. It has also been shown to help provide short-term protection against non-severe disease.

    A new specially designed children’s formula of the Pfizer BioNTech Covid-19 vaccine has been approved for this age group and it’s given at a lower dose compared with that used in individuals aged 12 and above (10 micrograms compared with 30 micrograms). Like all children’s vaccines, this approval was given following a robust review of data showing that it is safe and effective to use in this cohort. Clinical trials have shown that this vaccine was highly effective at preventing Covid-19 in children, protecting them and also reducing the chance that they will transmit the virus to others.
