COVID-19 Vaccination

Covid-19 Vaccine Logo

Those attending must bring photographic I.D or proof of address/Date of Birth and if available Health and Care number.

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.
